Applying an existing EBB Qualification (via Lifeline website) to a New Xfinity Account
Hello! On September 14, I qualified for the Emergency Broadband Benefit by completing an application on the Lifeline National Verifier (checklifeline.org). I received an email from [Edited: "Personal Information"] confirming that I qualified and giving me my application ID.
I then contacted Xfinity over the phone to set up a new account with no money down, since the 50-dollar credit would be sufficient to pay my Internet bill and equipment rental. I was told, however, that actually applying the EBB benefit itself needed to happen online.
I completed my order on the Xfinity website, giving my Application ID for EBB, and was told I should receive a confirmation email within 48 hours that the benefit has been applied to my account.
48 hours have passed and I haven't received a confirmation email yet. I want to make sure EBB is applied to my account and everything went through properly, and if not, to work out the issue by providing the proper information. This is very important, since I need to make sure EBB is applied before the next bill comes in.
