There are some ways to get free or low cost phone service, including the Lifeline program. There is also the Link-up phone program. Both are federal funded assistance programs for the low income, and provide emergency phone service to those who would otherwise not have a phone. The best place to call is your local community action agency. They can guide you through the process and help you apply.

We are getting parents’ rights on children, and now need a phone from Lifeline to help in an emergency. So right now out total monthly income is 997.00 per month and that is my social security benefit amount pet month. Out electric bill is due to be shut off December 22 if we don't pay 560.00. Phone is due to be shut off December 21 if 300.00 is not paid. We do not get food stamps husband is apply for social security as well as Lifeline, but has not been approved. We need help very bad. Don't know where to turn too.
