Lifeline Awareness Week Highlights National Telephone Discount



Lincoln, September 12, 2022 – The Nebraska Public Service
Commission (PSC) in conjunction with the National Association of
Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) is highlighting “Lifeline
Awareness Week” September 12-16 a federal/state program that
helps make affordable voice and broadband services available to
qualified participants.

Under the Federal Lifeline Program, consumers who participate in
certain public assistance and veterans’ programs or qualify based
on income can receive a discount of up to $9.25 per month off an
eligible phone, broadband, or bundled phone/broadband service.

The PSC’s Nebraska Telephone Assistance Program (NTAP)/Lifeline
helps qualified Nebraskans by providing an additional $3.50
each month, towards a voice phone service or bundled phone/
broadband service.

“Program data shows nearly 160,000 Nebraskan households are
eligible to participate in the Lifeline Program, yet only four percent
do,” said Commission Chair Dan Watermeier. “We would like to see
that number improve and would encourage interested households to
explore these programs.”

More information on program eligibility can be found on the NTAP/
Lifeline Program page
of the PSC website or by calling Lifeline
Support at 800-234-9473.  ###
