Viya reminds Lifeline customers they should be aware of their recertification date to ensure they retain their current service and to avoid disconnection. Recertification of some customers is due before March 31.

Lifeline recipients are required to provide a Social Security Card, valid state/government issued identification card, proof of program or household income eligibility documents at the time of the recertification.

The following programs will be accepted for certification:
