Applications are available at social services offices, NorthwestCell’s main office, all agent locations, or online at www.nwmcell.com. You may also contact us at (800) 331-6341. You will need to submit your Social Security Number and a form signed under penalty of perjury verifying that you receive benefits from the federal eligibility criteria. You will also need to submit proof of eligibility. If you qualify based on the income guidelines, you will need to provide proof of income for everyone in the household. Acceptable documentation of income eligibility includes the prior year’s state or federal tax return, paycheck stub, current income statement of benefit for Social security, or an Unemployment/Workmen’s Compensation statement of benefits.
Your Lifeline benefits will take effect when proof of eligibility is received.
