What Is The Lifeline Program?

StandUp Wireless

For the last 35 years, the FCC has made it possible for low-income consumers to receive access to free or heavily discounted communication services. The service originally started with home phone access, but as they saw the needs change over time, they expanded the program to provide wireless phones. Federal law requires telecommunication companies to contribute to the Universal Service Fund which in turn pays for the cell phone program, administered by USAC. Although a free phone is provided with our service, many customers choose to use a phone they already have with the free service program. The Lifeline program only allows one phone per household, but Standup Wireless also offers prepaid. This allows customers to activate additional phones for their family while still receiving reliable service at an affordable price.

StandUp Wireless is a Lifeline provider, which is a government benefit program.  We offer a Lifeline cell phone,  FREE monthly minutes, unlimited text and 3 GB of data to customers that qualify through programs such as Medicaid, SNAP, Federal Public Housing and Veterans Pension, or based on your household income.
