About the Cricket Lifeline Credit
Lifeline: Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
Once you submit your application for this government assistance program, we’ll verify your information and add the Cricket Lifeline Credit to your account. You should see your first credit within 30-60 days, typically for your first full month of service following verification of your application. If you haven’t received the credit by your second full month of service, just come back to the store for help. Each year, you may be asked to confirm your continued eligibility. Periodically, you may be asked to confirm your continued eligibility. That’s it!
What does the Cricket Lifeline 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 bolt-on you’ve always wanted or just enjoy the savings each month!
Are there any restrictions?
You must be a resident of a participating state to receive the Cricket Lifeline Credit. Only eligible consumers may enroll and the service is non-transferable. You must be the head of household and no one in your household 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 your state’s qualifications and must verify your qualification annually.
