What is the $100M Verizon Class Action About?

A landmark $100 Million class action settlement has been agreed upon with Verizon over allegations that the company unfairly billed customers for "Administrative Fees". The class action lawsuit alleged that Verizon used bait and switch tactics by raising administrative fees in customers' post-paid phone bills and not properly disclosing them in marketing or contract materials to those customers. It should be noted that Verizon has not admitted to any wrongdoing, but has agreed to pay into a massive $100 Million settlement fund, most of which will be paid to consumers who qualify for a class action claim for the Verizon fee settlement.

The anticipated amount of payment for the Verizon Fees Class Action is somewhere in the range of $20 to $100 per qualified consumer. Verizon had previously settled another large open class action lawsuit over unsolicited robocalls that allegedly violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, also known as the TCPA. The TCPA Verizon robocall settlement had paid out between $71 to $143 per robocall to consumers back in 2022. The robocall class action is already closed to claims and has paid out.

Do I Qualify For a Payout from the Verizon Settlement?

Anyone who is a current or prior post-paid wireless or "data" subscriber of Verizon services, and was charged an "Administrative Charge" or an Administrative and Telco Recovery charge at any point between January 1, 2016 through November 8, 2023. If you received a notice of this settlement by mail or email, you are in the Settlement Class, as referenced internally by Verizon's own customer and subscriber databases.

It should be noted that many Verizon customers are reporting that they are finding the crucial notice email in their spam folder, so make sure to check your spam so you don't miss your chance to file a claim. Here's what the email notice looks like directly from Verizon:

How Much Will I Get Paid?

The reported payments are estimated to be up to $100 per qualified class action claimant. However, it should be noted that the final payout will be determined based on a couple of factors such as how long each qualifying customer was subscribed to Verizon services, and how many valid and timely claim forms are filed. Payments are expected to be paid either via check or electronic payment, which may be popular methods like Zelle, Venmo, PayPal, or Electronic Prepaid Credit/Debit Cards.
