Verizon Reminds Lifeline Customers of New Application Process
Posted on June 07, 2012 at 08:17 AM EDT
BOSTON, June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon is reminding Massachusetts residents of the federal government's new process for applying for Lifeline discounted phone service.
The Federal Communications Commission has amended the process, which became effective June 1. The changes require applicants to provide additional verification for eligibility.
Among the changes, the FCC will require Lifeline applicants to certify that they are not participating in other discounted phone programs, including wireless programs. The FCC also will require applicants to provide certain government-issued documents to prove eligibility.
Applicants can learn about the new process by carefully reading the information on the FCC's website. Verizon's application can be found at www.verizon.com/lifeline or by contacting one of the agencies responsible for administering the program.
Verizon has briefed Massachusetts social service agencies on the new process and has provided those agencies with applications.
