|SC LIFELINE Program|
South Carolina Lifeline
Under the Lifeline program, telephone customers who participate in Medicaid (Healthy Connections), Food Stamps (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), School Free Lunch, Section 8, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) are entitled to receive a discount up to $12.75 per month on their telephone service. If you are a telephone customer that does not participate in any of these programs but your total household income is at or below 135% of Federal Poverty Guidelines, you may be eligible to receive the Lifeline benefit. Hargray is eligible to provide the Lifeline benefit to qualifying residential telephone customers in Hilton Head, Hardeeville and Bluffton.
*Lifeline is a government supported service. Applicants will be required to provide documentation necessary to verify eligibility. Applicants who willfully make false statements in order to obtain Lifeline benefits can be punished by fine or barred from the program. Only ONE Lifeline benefit per household. A household is not permitted to receive Lifeline benefits from multiple providers.
