Lifeline and Link-Up

Lifeline and Link-Up

Lifeline is a plan that assists qualified low-income Iowans by lowering the cost of basic, monthly telephone service.

Link-Up is an assistance plan that reduces the one time cost associated with initiating telephone service.

You may qualify if your household income is at or below 135% of the federal poverty guidelines or if you participate in one of the following programs: Medicaid, Food Stamps, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Federal Public Housing Assistance (FPHA), Low-Income Energy Assistance (LIHEAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or National School Lunch Program's Free Lunch Program.

The Lifeline or Link-Up program through Corn Belt Telephone is only available in the Wall Lake exchange.
