Veteran's Discount
Dan_From_46218

Hello. I'm a veteran. About 2 weeks ago I went to the page in which to apply for any available Veteran's Discounts on Verizon's site & entered all the required information, including a copy of my DD-214. I haven't heard anything back, and all the standard forum responses from administrators here on other posts with questions about veteran's stuff take me back to that same page. There is an option there to check the status of a request like mine but when I hit it then it simply redirects me back to the page where I am supposed to submit all my info (including DD-214) again. I simply want to find out if my request has been processed, or what. Any help (besides the standard link to the standard page) would be appreciated.

i doubt a store can help. I took my paystub into a verizon store yesterday and the woman told me 'Joe" could help me with validation. So I told joe what I needed and he said...I can't do that here. Your best bet is to go online and submit your paystubs there. Well JOE....I went into the store because that was suggested by Verizon and I was having real trouble submitting my paystubs online!  He DID offer to take my discount off and reapply it, but it would take probably 2 months to take effect. UGH....

Sounds like you either went to an indirect store or this employee was embarrassingly lazy. Corp stores and online submissions are how those get applied and when done correctly can show as active as little as same day - not 2 months.

I am sorry to learn that you are having trouble submitting your paystubs! We certainly want you to the qualifying discount. I recommend contacting the Employment Validation Team here https://www.verizonwireless-employmentvalidation.com/contactus/.

My name is Butch and I am a 70 year old Veteran who is looking for any or all discounts that I can find. I was on Facebook yesterday asking for other phone options and one person told me that at Verizon, I could get a Senior Citizen discount and someone else said I could get a Veteran Discount. Can you help me please?

As a Veteran myself (USMC), I want to first thank you for your service and sacrifices made to serve. Getting the best plan to fit your needs and your budget is always important and we will gladly get you the information needed to make the best decision for you. Now there is not a senior discount per se. We do have some plans that are available for customers 55 and over. Here is a link to our 55+ unlimited plan http://vz.to/2FcOBu0 Now if you do not live where this plan is available, the military discount would be the best option as it can actually be better than the 55+ plan depending on what plan you choose. Click here for more information on that discount https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/military-veterans-faqs/#discounts

Does that help?
