From this link:

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus SIM Support | Verizon Wireless

The PIN Unblocking Key (PUK) is utilized to reset a blocked SIM card and must be obtained via the My Verizon website before proceeding.

  1. From the Home screen, navigate: Settings > Phone > SIM PIN.
  2. Ensure that the SIM PIN switch is turned on Switch On (in the green position).
    Note If prompted, enter the 4-digit passcode then tap Done.
  3. Tap Change PIN.
  4. Enter the current SIM PIN info then tap Done.
    Caution If an invalid PUK is entered too many times, the SIM card is permanently disabled.
  5. Enter the new SIM PIN then tap Done.
  6. Re-enter the SIM PIN then tap Done.
