CenturyLink Inc. offers low-income assistance programs that help qualifying consumers obtain reduced-price voice and high-speed Internet services.
CenturyLink participates in a government benefit program called Lifeline to make residential telephone service more affordable to eligible low-income individuals and families. Qualifying consumers are those who meet eligibility standards defined by the Federal Communications Commission and state public service and utilities commissions.
The Lifeline discount is available for only one telephone line per household, which can be either a wireline or wireless telephone. For the purpose of the Lifeline program, a household is defined as any individual or group of individuals who live together at the same address and share income and expenses.
