I just joined a company that has an employee discount program with Verizon. I am on a Family Plan (not the new share everything) with my siblings/parents and am not a primary account administrator or whatever it's called. Can I still use the employee discount?
No. The account has to be in your name. Additionally, if your parents are getting a discount thru their employer, you wouldn't be eligible since the account is already getting a discount.
You would still have to become the account "owner" to be eligible for a discount thru your employer. If you are not currently the account owner, this would require you to go to a Verizon store and sign a contract/AOL (Assumption of Liability) agreeing to become the responsible party for ALL lines on the account. As a result, if anyone on the account decided to stop paying, YOU would be the responsible party for any payments that needed to be made.
Edit: furthermore, your credit report would need to be run and if it is not up to the standards Verizon requires for their accounts, you may have to put down a security deposit on each of the lines.
Yes, splitting off to your own plan, and using your employee discount is an option. You would do an Assumption of Liability and keep your same number...
Thanks for the help everyone. Am I correct in assuming that I can keep my unlimited data through the split?
Mmmmmm, that could be an issue. When you do an AOL, you need to choose a plan, and the unlimited is no longer a choice, so my gut says no, you would not be able to keep unlimited.
