Dependent Verification Notice

!!!!!!!!!!!!UPDATE 9/18/12!!!!!!!!!!


Dependent Verification process is over, but the appeals process is still available.

If you did not verify your dependents there is still time to put them back on with no break in coverage. I presently have a list of 188 Active members with 265 unverified dependents and 117 Retirees with 148 unverified dependents.
If you have not received confirmation of your dependents you must take action now! Call the Verizon Benefits Center (VBC) 877-489-2367 immediately to confirm your dependents are covered. If not, ask for your appeal form. Appeal forms are specially bar coded and must accompany all of the required documents (birth certificate, marriage certificate, tax forms, adoption papers etc) you submit for verification.
If you submit your required documents and this specially coded appeals form before Oct 31, 2012 your dependents will be placed back on coverage with no breaks in coverage. Any unpaid claims will be reprocessed. THIS IS YOUR LAST OPPORTUNITY TO GET YOUR DEPENDENTS ON WITH NO BREAK IN COVERAGE. Appeals after 10/31/2012 will be on a going forward basis only with a lapse of coverage.
Please email or call me if you encounter problems with the VBC, you must call the VBC immediately to start the process.
