About Renewing My California LifeLine
In order to continue participation in the California LifeLine program, each year all subscribers must verify that they are still eligible for the program. Subscribers who fail to renew their eligibility will be de-enrolled from the program and will lose their LifeLine benefit.
In order to continue receiving the LifeLine benefits, you must complete the form, sign it, and send it to the California LifeLine Administrator by the due date. You will have the options to renew online, by phone Monday – Friday from 7am to 7pm at 877-858-7463, or by mail.
