General Terms & Policies
Lifeline is a government program that offers qualified households a discount on their monthly telephone or internet service. Each state has its own guideline to qualify.
You can save up to $9.25 on your monthly bill. These benefits apply to Bundled internet and local telephone service that you purchase. These benefits will also cover your subscriber line charge. There are other options that can help you save money, including free toll blocking and a waived deposit with toll blocking on phone service.
Lifeline is only available to subscribers who can prove their eligibility. When you sign up for Lifeline, you must show proof of participation in a qualifying program or proof of income. You’re eligible for Lifeline if you, your dependent, or a member of your household participates in any of the following programs:
Lifeline can only be used for one telephone line or bundled broadband internet service in your household. You may not transfer your Lifeline discount to another person. Lifeline discounts on phone service include a transfer restriction (port freeze) for 60 days. This means that you are unable to obtain the Lifeline discount on service with another provider for 60 days from the date that your current voice service Lifeline discount began. Lifeline discounts on bundled broadband include a transfer restriction (port freeze) for 12 months. This means that once Lifeline broadband discounts begin, you will be unable to obtain a Lifeline discount with another provider from 12 months if you switch your service.

You must notify Cameron Communications if you are no longer eligible. Your benefits will be discontinued when you no longer meet eligibility requirements or if you fail to recertify your continued eligibility each year.
Notice: Being a Lifeline customer does not protect you from being disconnected if you fail to pay your telephone bill.
