Communications Lifeline & LInkUp America

Who Can Afford Not To Have A Telephone?

Verizon Communications in partnership with New Jersey SHARES makes residential telephone service more affordable in New Jersey by offering Communications Lifeline and Link Up America Services for qualified, low-income customers and program eligible clients.

Communications Lifeline provides a $13.27 maximum credit toward your monthly telephone bill including a full credit for Touch-Tone service. Communications Lifeline allows you to receive the discount by choosing Flat Rate Service, Moderate Use Message Rate Service or Low Use Message Rate Service. Link Up America provides a 50% discount on telephone connection charges. The remaining 50 percent may be billed in 12 monthly payments.

You can benefit from this service if you receive benefits from a state program (such as Food Stamps, Medicaid, or PAAD, among others) or if you are a Senior Citizen (+65) who is not participating in one of the above programs and is at or below 150% of the U.S. Census Bureau Poverty Level Guidelines.
To discover if you meet the program’s guidelines, and for full, helpful information and direction on the simple process to apply for this service, call the New Jersey SHARES Call Center at
1-888-337-3339 Monday through Friday, from 9am to 6pm.

For information on how you can offer this important service to your clients please contact Cheryl Stowell at
