Cheap or free internet for those who qualify
Posted by: Speedy

I suspect we will qualify for a year and a half because our income consists of only my Social Security and is less than the $36,620 for a family of two. My wife is 68 (retired on 12/31/21) and her SS will be three times mine if we wait until she is 70 which is our plan (we have adequate savings so our plan for her SS will not be changing.)

There are also other ways besides income in order to qualify. My daughter qualifies because even though her significant other makes over $30k/year and she receives social security disability income which combined would put them over the household income threshold, because they are not married, she qualifies for Medicaid based on her income (and disability) and therefore qualifies for this program.

(I sincerely dislike these types of programs plugging the politicians of either party who backed them.)

I applied yesterday and received an email from Spectrum within an hour.

I'm currently paying $75/month for internet plus misc. fees.

Well it is in the T&D side. I wouldn't have seen it in the FPR aka darkside.

btw, this chart from the White House has the FPG pre-calculated to 200%:



If your income is just SSR don't forget to add your Medicare B premium ($2041.20 yr)
into your annual net benefit before doing any calculations.
So a single household would be a total monthly income of $1132.50
including the $170.10 "Part B" premium.

Not at all - better the word is spread than buried.
