As we learn more about our benefits during this month’s Annual Enrollment for the upcoming year, we’re taking time to share personal stories about how V Teamers are using their Verizon benefits in life-changing, meaningful ways.

Today, Jenny Weaver, a member of our Network team in Tempe, AZ, shares the journey she and her husband took in hopes of expanding their family.

Jenny, who will be celebrating 20 years on the V Team this December, first looked into utilizing Verizon’s infertility benefit. While the option proved unsuccessful, Jenny credits the company for helping to guide and support her family building journey.

“Verizon was there for us the whole time and provided that benefit which was truly amazing,” said Jenny.

Jenny and her husband eventually looked into our adoption benefit, and after many ups and downs, they adopted their son Henry in 2018.

“We waited so long for him. Every tear shed, every penny spent, everything has been worth it because I have this incredible son,” said Jenny. “I can’t express my gratitude enough to Verizon for the support, not only financially, but also the support of my teammates. It’s just been overwhelming.”

Congrats to Jenny, and thank you for sharing your story with us.

It’s stories like these that show how our Verizon benefits can be such a vital part of our V Team journey. If you’ve got a story to share about how our company benefits supported you, please send a note to good@verizon.com.

Annual Enrollment for U.S. management, West associates, and for U.S. Verizon Media Group employees will take place from Oct 19 through 29.

New for 2021, for U.S. Management-based employees, the lifetime maximum infertility benefit will be increasing from $20,000 to $75,000, for those enrolled in our national plan options (PPO Plus, EPN, and HDP). The limits in our Kaiser HMOs are also increasing.

Look for more information in the coming days as you begin to think about and review your 2021 benefits in advance of the Oct 19 start of Annual Enrollment.
