Teachers unlimited plan discount - FAQs

Verizon gives to those who give the most. This page gives information about how eligible teachers can get a monthly discount on wireless service with our unlimited phone plans.

About the Verizon teachers discount

  1. I'm a teacher. Am I eligible to get the teachers discount?

    To qualify for the teachers discount you must:

    • Have at least 1 smartphone or basic phone on a qualifying Verizon monthly unlimited plan.
    • Be the Account Owner or Account Manager. Visit our Account Manager FAQs to learn how to add an Account Manager.
    • Be a currently-employed teacher (kindergarten to grade 12 or post-secondary instructor).
    • Apply online through our Discounts by Verizon page.
    • Validate your teaching employment as part of the discount registration.*
    • Re-validate your teaching employment about once a year (we’ll send you a reminder).

    Todoist for Teachers: As a teacher, you’re eligible for 6 months free of the Premium Todoist app ($18 value). Easily organize and prioritize your tasks and projects so you’ll always know exactly what to work on next. Sign up with your promo code and learn more at ToDoIst.com/verizon.

    *Certain states may require that you provide us with a teaching certificate to qualify instead of just employment information. We’ll let you know during validation if so.

  2. What is the teachers discount for Verizon wireless service?

    Eligible teachers who have a Verizon account with at least 1 smartphone or basic phone on 1 or more of these Verizon plans to mix and match can get a monthly discount:


    • Go Unlimited,** Beyond Unlimited** and Above Unlimited are no longer available to add to accounts. If you have these plans you can keep them. You can also mix and match them with our current unlimited plans.

    *The Just Kids plan requires a parent line with an unlimited data plan.

    **Go Unlimited and Beyond Unlimited plans purchased on or before 6/17/18 can't be mixed and matched and are not eligible for this discount. You can switch to a current unlimited plan any time in My Verizon.

  3. How much is the wireless discount Verizon offer for teachers?

    The monthly teachers discount amount depends on how many phones on qualifying unlimited plans you have:

    • 1 phone - $10/month discount per account
    • 2 – 3 phones - $25/month discount per account
    • 4+ phones - $20/month discount per account*

    Visit our teachers discount page to view pricing for our unlimited plans.

    *This discount reflects that when you have 4 or more unlimited plans, you already get a discounted price.

  4. I'm a Verizon customer. How do I sign up for the Verizon teachers discount?

    If you already have a qualifying unlimited plan, validate your teaching status and sign up for the discount on our dedicated page for Teachers. Go the Get your Teachers discount section and choose Check Eligibility to get started.

    If you don’t yet have a qualifying unlimited plan, here's how to change your plan:

    • My Verizon online: Go to the My Plan page.
    • My Verizon app: Open the menu in the top left. Tap Account. Tap My Plan and follow the prompts.

    When your unlimited plan is active, return to our teachers page and choose Existing Customers to sign up.

    Note: You can register for a teachers discount before you get a qualifying unlimited plan. However, your discount starts only when you activate a qualifying plan on your account.

  5. I'm not a Verizon customer yet. How can I sign up and get the teachers discount?

    If you’re not a Verizon customer yet, visit our dedicated page for Teachers. Go the Enroll and get your Teachers discount section and choose Check Eligibility to get started.

    After we've verified your teaching status, choose New to Verizon to shop for a new device (or bring your own device) and get a monthly plan.

    Note: As a new customer, you must choose Start Unlimited, Play More Unlimited, Do More Unlimited, Get More Unlimited or Just Kids* to qualify for the teachers discount.

    *The Just Kids plan requires a parent line with an unlimited data plan.

  6. After I register, how do I check that my teachers discount was applied?

    Learn how to see your discount in your Verizon account by visiting our Discounts - how to register page.

  7. I'm a teacher and also a veteran. Can I get the military discount on top of my teachers discount?

    No. You can only have 1 of these discounts at a time.

    Visit our Military Discounts FAQs for information that can help you choose your best option. If you decide you want the other discount, you can switch any time by re-registering on our Discounts by Verizon program page.

  8. Can I also get a discount on Verizon Fios Home Internet service?

    Teachers may also qualify for a discount on our home internet service.* Visit our Verizon Fios teachers discount page to learn more.

    *Fios is currently available in key metro areas in these states: New Jersey, New York, Maryland, Delaware, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia and in Washington DC.

  9. Can I get other discounts along with the teachers discount?

    Yes. You can also have these discounts on your account with the teachers discount (with qualifying plans): 

  10. I'm the spouse of a teacher. Can I apply for the teachers discount?

    No. To be able to register and validate teaching service the person applying for the discount must be both:

    • The employed teacher with a valid teaching certificate
    • The Verizon Account Owner or Account Manager

    If the account is in the name of a family member or friend and not the teacher, complete a Transfer of Service before registering for the discount.

  11. I'm a retired teacher. Can I apply for the teachers discount?

    No. At this time, only active teachers are eligible to apply.

  12. Why are only K-12 or postsecondary teachers eligible for this discount?

    Verizon recognizes the contributions of all those who are in the service of education and of school staff, especially during these trying times. Many of our spouses, family members, and friends are with you serving our communities’ students.

    Our Those Who Serve program is available to these groups across the US. This broad availability requires us to use nationally-standardized validation methods. We also must comply with regulations for those employed by local or state governments. As a result, certifications and licenses for select professions are required. We continue to review expanding the program to include other groups.

    For those school staff members, aides and administrators not covered under the Those Who Serve program, other discounts may be available based on your specific school or district. To check, visit our Discount Program page and choose Existing Customers or New to Verizon and follow the prompts.
