Did you know that if you live on tribal land, you are eligible to receive many additional benefits through the FCC’s Lifeline program?
We’re working to raise awareness about its Lifeline Assistance program aimed at providing affordable telephone access to those who need it most.
According to the FCC website, eligible telephone subscribers on Tribal lands may receive basic local phone service for as little as $1 a month. Link-Up provides eligible consumers with a one-time initial hook-up discount.
The discount is up to 50% off the first $60 of your bill. The maximum discount is $30.
Eligible residents of Tribal land include those who participate in Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance, Tribally-Administered Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TTANF), or Head Start (those meeting its income-qualifying standard).
You can find further eligibility information at http://transition.fcc.gov/indians/financialassistance.html.
If you’re one of our customers, you can also call our Customer Response Center at 1-855-853-1483 for further information.
