Lifeline is a program that offers a discount on phone service for qualifying low income consumers. It is implemented to ensure that all Americans have the opportunities and security that phone service brings, like being able to connect to jobs, family, and emergency services.

You cannot be contacted for a job interview or for a scholarship interview or for an important medical appointment. In 2008, they implemented the prepaid wireless service plans. Those service plans can help you in case you are stranded in the middle of the highway or someone collapses in front of you.
