The National Lifeline Accountability Database (NLAD) allows service providers to check on a real-time, nationwide basis whether a consumer is already receiving a Lifeline Program-supported service. Service providers can only claim reimbursement for Lifeline subscribers that are enrolled in NLAD.

The NLAD Bulletin provides email notices about system maintenance and updates. Sign up in the Subscription Center (select "NLAD Bulletin").
Service providers in most states are required to query NLAD prior to enrolling a subscriber in the Lifeline Program to confirm the subscriber’s household is not already receiving Lifeline-supported service. Prior to querying NLAD, obtain the subscriber’s consent to transmit their personal information (per the rules). Upon enrolling a new Lifeline subscriber, service providers must record the enrollment in NLAD. Reimbursement is not available for subscribers that are not recorded in NLAD.
For existing subscribers, service providers must update NLAD within ten (10) business days of receiving any change to the subscriber’s information, for example, change of address or name change.
When a service provider de-enrolls a subscriber from Lifeline, NLAD must be updated within one (1) business day.
