RTI offers Lifeline and Link-Up Assistance programs that provide non-telephone residents access to basic phone services.
Residents who otherwise cannot afford telephone service can receive discounts on basic service. The program helps the low-income and elderly stay connected to emergency services and community resources.
If you or anyone is without phone service you may qualify for these federal programs. Call the following numbers in your state for more information: Idaho Department of Health & Welfare Regional Office 1-800-926-2588. Nevada: 1-888-366-7821. Oregon: OTAP 1-800-848-4442 and Washington: 1-888-636-2840.
As of August 2, 2012, RTI will be adjusting the Lifeline credit to their Lifeline customers. The credit amount change is mandated by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). The recent FCC Lifeline Reform Orders reforms low-income universal service programs to eliminate waste and inefficiencies and increase accountability.
The new Lifeline credit for RTI-Nevada customers will be increased from $8.25 per a month to $9.25 per month. This credit adjustment will be reflected on the customers August 2012 bill.
As well, beginning in July, the company will no longer be providing Linkup-Support for non-tribal customers. RTI will also be transitioning in 2012 to new FCC/State Lifeline certification processes in order to re-certify eligibility for each and every Lifeline subscriber.
