Connect to California LifeLine and Save! (2020)

Library: English | Connect to California LifeLine and Save! (2020): Discounted telephone service can help your family stay in touch

California LifeLine provides discounts on basic residential wireline (home phone) or wireless telephone service to eligible low-income households. Consumers who qualify for California LifeLine pay a fraction of the regular cost for telephone connection or activation and monthly service. This brochure explains the features and benefits of Lifeline phone service, how to apply for the program and what you must do to continue participation.

COVID-19 NOTE: To prevent any loss of LifeLine discounts for program participants and applicants during the pandemic, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has temporarily suspended certain enrollment and renewal requirements until at least June 30, 2020. As the COVID-19 crisis develops, the CPUC will consider extending the suspension period and/or implementing other measures to ensure continued access to program benefits.
