Lifeline - Low Income Assistance


Bruce Telephone Company (BTC), through the Federal Communications Commission's Lifeline assistance program, provides a $9.25 monthly credit on your residential telephone service. You may qualify for Lifeline if you or your household participates in any of the following programs:  

 

•  Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Food Stamps/SNAP)
  Medicaid
•  Federal Public Housing Assistance (Section 8 FHPA)
  Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  Veterans Pension and Survivors Benefits  

 

OR if your total household income is at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.

 

 

A Lifeline Assistance Form is available here or at the BTC office.

 
*Lifeline is a federal benefit; only one Lifeline service is available per household; a household cannot receive benefits from multiple providers such as a wireline and wireless services; a household is defined for Lifeline eligibility as any individual or group of individuals who live together at the same address and share their income and expenses (economic unit); and Lifeline is a non-transferable benefit. Violation of the one per household rule requirement would constitute a violation of the Federal Communications Commission's rules and would result in the consumer's de-enrollment from the program, and potentially, prosecution by the United States government.
