DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE FOR LOW INCOME CUSTOMERS
The Cumby Telephone Cooperative offers reduced rates to eligible low-income residential consumers under a government assistance program called Lifeline. Lifeline provides monthly discounts to an eligible customer’s voice telephony service (home or wireless service, but not both). Customers who are eligible for Lifeline are also eligible for toll blocking at no charge.
To be eligible for Lifeline a customer’s annual household income must be at or below 150% of the federal poverty guidelines, or a customer must receive benefits from or have a child in the household who receives benefits from at least one of the following programs: Medicaid; Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) (formerly Food Stamps); Supplemental Security Income (SSI); Federal Public Housing Assistance (FPHA); Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP); Temporary Assistance for Needy Families; National School Lunch Program’s free lunch program; or health benefits coverage under the state Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
Lifeline service is limited to one discount per household. A household is everyone who lives in the home (including children and people who are not related to the customer) and shares income and household expenses (bills, food, etc.). A customer with Lifeline service may not transfer the Lifeline benefit to any other person. Lifeline is a nontransferable benefit.
