Most of the questions or concerns that you may have about the program or this Plan can be addressed quickly and
satisfactorily by contacting us at 1-866-856-3882. In the unlikely event that there are any disputes that cannot be resolved
informally, YOU AND WE AGREE TO RESOLVE THOSE DISPUTES THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION OR SMALL
168 (09/12)
CLAIMS COURT INSTEAD OF THROUGH COURTS OF GENERAL JURISDICTION. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT
ANY ARBITRATION WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY. YOU AND WE AGREE TO WAIVE OUR
RIGHTS TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. Arbitration is more informal than a
lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury. It has more limited discovery than in court
and is subject to limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award.
For the purpose of this arbitration agreement, references to “we” and “us” include (1) the Plan Obligor and
Administrator, as defined in Sections 1 and 2 above, and their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents,
employees, successors and assigns; and (2) Verizon Communications, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries. The
enforcement and interpretation of this arbitration agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. This arbitration
agreement shall survive the termination of this Plan.
This arbitration agreement is intended to be interpreted broadly, and it includes, without limitation: (1) any
dispute or claim arising out of or relating in any way to the program or to this Plan, whether based in contract, tort, statute,
fraud, misrepresentation or otherwise; and (2) any such dispute or claim that arose either before this arbitration
agreement or Plan was entered into by you and us or that arises after this arbitration agreement or Plan is terminated.
Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, this arbitration agreement does not preclude you or us from bringing an individual
action in small claims court. This arbitration agreement also does not preclude you from informing any federal, state or
local agencies or entities of your dispute or claim. Such agencies or entities may be able to seek relief from us on your
behalf.
If you or we intend to seek arbitration you and we must first send to the other a written Notice of Claim (“Notice”)
by certified mail. Your Notice to Us should be addressed to: Legal Department, 22660 Executive Drive, Suite 122,
Sterling VA 20166. The Notice must describe the dispute and state the specific relief sought. If you and we do not
resolve the dispute within 30 days of receipt of the Notice, you or we may initiate an arbitration proceeding with the
American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). You can obtain the forms necessary to initiate an arbitration proceeding by
visiting www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. After we receive notice that you have commenced arbitration, we will
reimburse you for payment of any filing fee to the AAA. If you are unable to pay a required filing fee, we will pay it if you
send a written request by certified mail to: Legal Department: 22660 Executive Drive, Suite 122, Sterling VA 20166. The
arbitration shall be administered by the AAA in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary
Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “Arbitration Rules”) in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated and as
modified by this Arbitration Agreement. You can obtain a copy of the Arbitration Rules by visiting www.adr.org or by
calling 1-800-778-7879.
The arbitrator appointed by the AAA to decide the dispute is bound by the terms of this Arbitration Agreement.
All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this Arbitration Agreement, with the exception that issues
relating to the enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement may be decided by a court. Unless you and we agree
otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county or parish of your billing address. If your dispute is for
$10,000 or less, you may choose to conduct the arbitration hearings either by submitting documents to the arbitrator or by
appearing before the arbitrator in person or by telephone. If your dispute is for more than $10,000, the right to arbitration
hearings will be determined by the Arbitration Rules. We will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees for any
arbitration initiated pursuant to this Arbitration Agreement, unless your dispute is found by the arbitrator to have been
frivolous or brought for an improper purpose under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b). In that case, the payment of
such fees shall be governed by the Arbitration Rules.
At the conclusion of the arbitration hearings, the arbitrator shall issue a written decision which includes an
explanation of the facts and law upon which the decision is based. If the arbitrator finds in your favor and issues a
damages award that is greater than the value of the last settlement offer made by us or if we made no settlement offer
and the arbitrator awards you any damages, we will: (1) pay you the amount of the damages award or $7,500, whichever
is greater; and (2) pay your attorney, if any, twice the amount of the attorney's fees and the actual amount of any
expenses reasonably incurred when pursuing your dispute in arbitration. You and we agree not to disclose any
settlement offers to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has issued the written decision. The arbitrator may resolve any
disputes regarding attorney's fees and expenses either during the arbitration hearings or, upon request, within 14 days of
the arbitrator's written decision. While the right to the attorney’s fees and expenses discussed above is in addition to any
right you may have under applicable law, neither you nor your attorney may recover duplicate awards of attorney’s fees
and expenses. Although we may have the right under applicable law to recover attorney’s fees and expenses from you if
we prevail in the arbitration, we hereby waive the right to do so.
To the extent either declaratory or injunctive relief is sought in the arbitration, such relief can be awarded only to the
extent necessary to provide the relief warranted by a party's individual claim. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY
BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS
MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless you and we agree otherwise,
the arbitrator may not consolidate the dispute of another person with your or our dispute and may not preside over any
form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision of this Arbitration Agreement is found to be
unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void.
