Benefit Renewal for 2010 for Verizon of Florida and Verizon LiveSource *** UPDATE ***

Posted in
Information we received by viewing the Benefits website states that if you currently have BCBS Alabama, you will be automatically switched to Anthem BCBS. If you want to keep the same coverages, the ONLY thing you have to do is choose your Primary Care Physician (PCP) again, so you can receive a new Insurance card.

Click on this pdf file to see a comparison of the current plan and the 2 new plans (PPO and EPO.)  The PPO provides the benefits as stated in our Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Cisco Training Classes

Posted in
As you may know, we have had members sign up for Cisco training classes on their own time, but paid for by the Company over the past few months.  These classes are not graded and are held in a hotel.  If an employee applies for tuition assistance for these classes, their application will be denied.  If you have already taken the class or in the process of taking the class, you will not be held liable for payment.  But, if an employee has signed anything saying THEY would pay, they could end up being held responsible for that payment.  DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING THAT SAYS YOU WILL PAY!
