Lifeline is a government program that grants eligible individuals a credit each month on their phone bill. Millions of Americans benefit from this credit. Eligible customers may receive the Lifeline or wireless service, but the credit is only available for one phone line per household. We are excited to offer a $10.00 Cricket Lifeline Credit to our illinoins Cricket Wireless customers; the Cricket Lifeline Credit is not available for Cricket Broadband or Cricket PAYGo service.

Once you have Cricket Wireless service, you can apply for the Cricket Lifeline Credit at a Cricket Corporate-Owned Store or Exclusive Cricket Dealer. Just complete and sign the Cricket Lifeline Credit application available in stores, provide documentation verifying your participation in one of the eligible programs and show a government issued photo ID.
HOW DOES IT WORK?

Each year, you may be asked to confirm your continued eligibility. That's it!
