Important Notice to Verizon retirees!

It has come to our attention that someone may be calling Verizon retirees and trying to visit you to explain your "Verizon benefits". No one is calling retirees to explain benefits so please do not get roped into this. If someone calls you get their name and phone number and ask who the company is that they are calling from and forward that information to us. In the 
upcoming weeks you will get information about the new Medicare Advantage. Any letters being sent to you will be posted on the Union's website. Please watch out for scams! If you get any letters stating that they are contacting you about your Verizon benefits and those letters are not the same as what is posted on the union website please send them to VP Karen Lane at Klane@ibew827.com
