Any household with an individual who receives Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is eligible to receive discounted internet service through the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). Lifeline is another program offered, but you cannot participate in both. Receipt of this assistance will not affect your SSI payment. You may also be eligible, if your household participates in other assistance programs, such as:
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
- Federal Public Housing Assistance.
- Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC).
There are additional ways to qualify. Go to the Affordable Connectivity Program page to learn more and apply.
