VERIZON New Jersey Communications Lifeline

Caring for our entire community

Verizon New Jersey cares about every one of our customers, and in this era of rapidly advancing technology, we can’t forget that there are still many people who can’t afford a single landline telephone to stay in touch with friends and family – or to call for help when they need it. The Communications Lifeline program provides these customers with the ability to obtain affordable landline telephone service.

Helping people in need stay connected

Verizon Lifeline is designed to help people with a limited income pay for that vital landline phone service. New Jersey residents who qualify and participate in one of many different government assistance programs are eligible for Verizon Lifeline. Participants can receive:

  • Flat Rate Service — $1.95*
  • Message Rate Service — $.40*
  • Low use Message Rate – No monthly charge

*Reflects monthly rate after discount applied

Verizon Lifeline is offered by Verizon New Jersey Inc. with assistance from NJ Shares, a statewide 501(c)3 non-profit organization
