How much can I save?

Although it varies from state to state, you can save at least $10/month on your wireless plan, potentially more depending on location and eligibility.

Are there any restrictions?

Yes. Certain restrictions do apply. Eligibility depends on the area you live, your income or any public assistance programs you’re eligible to participate in, and your particular situation. Family Mobile is not available to consumers who are already receiving Lifeline assistance through another carrier and no consumer may receive Lifeline benefits on more than one line of service, wireless or otherwise. Consumers who receive Lifeline benefits through Family Mobile agree to certain terms and conditions and other restrictions may apply.
