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).
*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.
