Member companies having phones registered under their company's federal identification number can receive 22% off their Verizon Wireless bills on programs that are $34.99 and higher. With our new partnership with NPP, the discount would come off the primary line only (account level line). The account level price gives the account the unlimited minutes and messaging and then they choose the amount of data they want on the account (1GB, 2 GB, 4GB, etc.). Again, this account level cost does receive the 22% discount. All employees can register their personal liable phones (registered under a social security number) for a 15% discount or 18% if they choose the paperless billing option. Everyone will receive a 25% discount on accessories.
