Many staff and faculty participate in a Verizon Wireless discount program that is available to IIT employees. Verizon has recently undertaken a nationwide effort for such customers to verify their employment to continue to receive the discounts. This is intended to be a one-time audit to verify employment of people who have corporate discounts on their personal devices and receive their own bills. Individuals who do not complete employment validation will lose their employee discount.
Verizon has previously sent email, text and mailings to IIT employees requesting that they validate their employment; however, IIT has learned that the online link users are directed to will not work for educational organizations because both students and employees have a “.edu” email address.
To validate employment and obtain eligibility for the discount:
- Call the Employment Validation Processing Center at 800.890.8007 and speak to a validation specialist, who will complete the validation form over the phone.
- Mail a copy of a recent paystub to the address below to complete the validation:
Verizon Wireless Employment Validation
Program Code 50-001
PO Box 540002
El Paso, TX 88554-9901
Once you complete the process, you will receive either a valid or invalid notification via email or postal mail. Please contact Verizon Wireless with any questions.
