FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What do members need to enroll?
Medicaid members will only be asked to enter the Personal Identifiable Information (PII) and do not need any formal documentation. The Lifeline for Medicaid Members application will ask:
- Member first and last name
- Member Date of birth
- Last four digits of member’s social security number
- Member Residence Address
- Email Address
Information must match the member’s information in their Medicaid file within the Medicaid database, even if out-to-date. (i.e. If a member has moved but has not yet updated their residence, they must enter the residence address on file.)
How do I confirm my eligibility?
All Medicaid members are eligible for the Lifeline Program and Affordable Connectivity Program. We recommend members confirm that they are in the National Verifier BEFORE submitted their application. Members should visit https://www.checklifeline.org/lifeline to confirm that they are listed in the database and the personal information in the National Verifier.
Members WILL NOT be automatically approved unless their information is listed in the National Verifier OR if the information on the application and within the database do not match.
How long does the process take?
Applying is simple and takes no more than a few minutes. Phones will be shipped to the recipient’s home in 1-2 business days.
If multiple members in the same household qualify for Lifeline and ACP, can they receive multiple free smartphones and plans?
No, Federal rules only permit one Lifeline and ACP benefit per household. If eligible members within the same household are married, they are considered one household and do not qualify individually. However, it two eligible members live together but maintain separate finances (i.e. contribute to the bill separately), those two individuals are considered different economic units and qualify separately. Customer attestation is required to confirm they are different economic units.
What if a member is already receiving a Lifeline and ACP benefit?
Individuals currently receiving the Lifeline and ACP benefit can elect to transfer their benefit to this free, new plan. To do so, members simply need to enroll via this application and their prior benefit will be terminated. It is important to ask members if they already receive a Lifeline and ACP benefits, such as for their home phone line. If members enroll in this new plan, they will lose their former benefit and be charged the full amount of the broadband service. One can check the member’s phone bill to confirm if a member already receives a Lifeline benefit.
Do members need to do anything after they submit their application?
What if we have more questions during enrollment?
Once the member enters their zip code, they will be shown the relevant contact information for our customer support team.
What if a member’s shipping address is different from their residence address within their Medicaid file?
Members can opt to select a separate shipping address. Members must check the relevant box and enter their current shipping address.
Can I enroll on behalf of a child?
Children who are on Medicaid also qualify for the Lifeline and ACP Programs. A child’s guardian can enroll in the program on behalf of that child.
What if I have questions about using my device?
Please contact the wireless carrier with any technical questions regarding using the device.
What if I want to keep my current phone number?
The Member should notify customer support of their desire to port over an existing number. The Member will then receive a text message asking him/her/they to confirm. There will be a few additional steps sent via text message from the Wireless Carrier. The benefit recipient will receive a final message asking to confirm with “Ready”; at that point in time the number is ported/changed.
What if my phone is lost, stolen or damaged?
The Member should contact customer support at the phone number included in the shipping box to request a new phone if their phone has been lost, stolen or damaged. (If the Member no longer has the phone number, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be directed to the appropriate representative.) The customer service representatives will then go through the checks to prevent waste, fraud and abuse and determine if/when a new phone may be sent.
