Transfer Phone Number

I'm getting ready to leave my current job and my employer is going to transfer my number to me.  They told me that I will need to have an account with Verizon before they can make this transfer.   Since I do not currently have the number, I could only register an account with my email address.  Is there any other step that I need to take in order to be able to accept the number?  I am unable to do anything else with my profile without an account or phone number.

Based on that information, if you would like to transfer the line under your name, you will need to start a new line of service, and we'll be happy to welcome you in the Verizon family.
