Get to know the Verizon Prepaid Family Plan


Family plans don’t have to be complicated. And with the Verizon Prepaid Family Plan, you get the benefits of America’s largest and most reliable 4G LTE network without any long-term commitments. Save money and simplify your payment process by signing up multiple family members to the same account.

Why Prepaid?

Looking for a reliable phone plan that does away with annual contracts and credit checks? With Prepaid, you pay in advance for monthly voice, text and data services. Get the services and features you want, for as long as you want. There are a number of Prepaid Unlimited Talk & Text plans to choose from. And the more lines you add to your account, the more chances you have to save.*

How does it work?

Once you’ve signed up for Prepaid, access your account over the My Verizon app or via your browser at My Verizon – whichever is more convenient for you. A Prepaid Family Account can have up to 5 lines (1 Account Owner and 4 Account Members), making it easier to manage multiple lines at once. You can choose how to use your own data since each line has its own monthly plan allowance.

What are the differences between Account Owners and Account Members?

Each Prepaid Family Plan holds one Account Owner in order to simplify the billing process and make line management quick and simple. Account Owners are responsible for payment of all active lines on their monthly renewal date. Setting up Auto Pay can make the process easier and less stressful. Account Owners can monitor phone usage, transfer funds and make changes to all lines in their My Verizon account menu options. Options available to Account Owners in My Verizon include the ability to change plans, manage Auto Pay, disconnect a line and add recurring features.

Account Members can access their own lines and accounts. However, they do not receive access to other members’ accounts.

How can I find out more about eligibility?

Many of the hottest smartphones and 4G LTE phones are eligible for Prepaid. Check out Verizon’s Prepaid smartphones and Prepaid basic phones for a full list of available options. Only new, active phones on Prepaid monthly plans are eligible to be part of a new Prepaid Family Account.

Already have a Prepaid single-line account? Switching to a Prepaid Family Account is easy. Pick which line you want to designate as the Account Owner and add anywhere from 1 to 4 lines to your new family account profile.
