Employees may receive up to 8% off the monthly access fee on qualifying wireless voice plans of $34.99 or higher. All they have to do is go to http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/index.html and click on Check for Employee Discount on the left. You will be asked to enter your work email address. After completing this task and clicking on Check for Discounts, you will receive an email confirming you are eligible for a discount on phones, calling plans, accessories and more. If you are a customer and the system indicates you do not qualify for this program you will need to go to a Verizon wireless office and provide proof of your employment as well as a previous Verizon invoice.
