Illinois Cricket Lifeline Credit

What is the Cricket Lifeline Credit?

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 credit for landline or wireless service, but the credit is only available for one phone line per household. Cricket now offers a $10 Cricket Lifeline Credit to our Illinois Cricket Wireless customers; the Cricket Lifeline Credit is not available for Cricket Broadband or Cricket PAYGo service.

 

Who qualifies for the Cricket Lifeline Credit?

If you are a resident of Illinois, you may qualify for the Cricket Lifeline Credit by one of two methods. Method 1 is program-based; if you or another person in your household is enrolled in at least one of the public assistance programs listed below, you may qualify. Method 2 is income-based; you may also qualify if your household’s total annual gross income is at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. You will be required to provide documentation verifying your participation in one of the eligible programs or your household income.

How do I apply?

If you don’t have a Cricket Wireless account already, you must activate a new account before you can apply for the Cricket Lifeline Credit. 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 listed above, and show a government-issued photo ID. 

 

How does it work?

Once you submit your application, we'll verify your information and add the Cricket Lifeline Credit to your account while you are in the store. Each year, you will be asked to confirm your continued eligibility. That's it! 

 

What does the Cricket Lifeline Credit mean for me?

When you take advantage of the Cricket Lifeline Credit, Cricket service delivers even more value for the dollar. Step-up to a higher-value rate plan, add a feature you’ve always wanted, or just enjoy the savings each month!

 

Are there any restrictions?

You must be a resident of Illinois to receive this credit. You must be the head of household and no one at your residence can receive land or wireless Lifeline service from another provider. Lifeline can only be applied to ONE PHONE LINE PER HOUSEHOLD, and the name on the account must match the name of the person submitting the application. To receive the Cricket Lifeline Credit, you must live in Cricket’s designated service area, must meet Illinois’ qualifications, and must verify your qualification annually. 

 

Where can I learn more?

You can visit one of the Cricket locations listed or visit mycricket.com/locations to find a Cricket Corporate-Owned Store or an Exclusive Cricket Dealer near you.
