PUC Encourages Consumers to Stay Connected during Lifeline Awareness Week Sept. 11-17
Benefits for Lifeline Program Recipients
PUC Chairman Gladys M. Brown
HARRISBURG – In coordination with a national effort to reach those in need of telecommunications assistance, the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) recognizes Sept. 11-17 as Lifeline Awareness Week, to help low-income Pennsylvanians stay connected.
“Lifeline helps low-income consumers connect to the nations’ communications networks, and has been updated to include both voice and broadband options,” said PUC Chairman Gladys M. Brown in a video news release. “Participating carriers are required to promote the Lifeline program, and recent changes to the program, such as the requirement for annual recertification of eligibility, have made educating recipients even more important.”
