How do I get a T-Mobile 55+ plan?

We'll need to verify that you are eligible for a Go5G 55+, Magenta 55+ or Essentials 55+ plan using the steps in the next section.

General Requirements

  • The Billing Responsible Party must be 55 years old or older to qualify.
  • A valid government-issued ID must be provided at the time of activation or plan change to verify eligibility. 


  • US and Puerto Rico residents, 55 years or older.
  • Proof of age is required. 
  • Maximum of one Unlimited 55 account per Social Security Number. Multiple accounts with 1 - 4 line versions of this plan are not allowed.

  • Business, Government, or Prepaid accounts.
  • Individuals who have or need more than four lines. 

Verify my T-Mobile 55+ plan eligibility

As the Billing Responsible Party, your age needs to be verified if you've already signed up for the Go5G 55+, Magenta 55+ or Essentials 55+ plan or if you are interested in adding it. Verify your age within 45 days from activation or plan change, otherwise, your plan will be switched to the standard plan version and risk a price increase of up to $20 per line.

Verify your eligibility by visiting a T-Mobile store with a valid government-issued ID, and we will walk you through the process.

  • Valid U.S. Driver’s License issued by the DMV with photo
