We stand ready to support service members every step of the way—that’s why we’re committed to hiring 10,000 veterans and military spouses, offering career training, and supporting veteran causes.

After activating or switching to a Magenta Military plan, you’ll need to verify your military status. Ensure that the military person or Gold Star family member, is designated as the primary account holder. For active duty military members who are deployed, a spouse or family member can also verify eligibility.

To verify military status, either visit a T-Mobile retail store and one of our retail experts will walk you through the process, or follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the military verification page at my.t-mobile.com/profile.
  2. Log in by entering your T-Mobile Phone Number and Account PIN.
  3. Enter details into the required fields for the military member. If the name field does not show the military member's name and you cannot change it, you'll need to contact us to update the billing-responsible party's name on your account to get this offer.
  4. Select Verify and Continue. Note: T-Mobile for Business customers, excluding Individual Sole Proprietors, will be required to upload additional documentation to verify eligibility.
 

The validation process typically happens in a few quick steps and takes less than 10 minutes. You will have 45 days from plan activation to verify your eligible military status or you will be moved to a Magenta or Magenta Plus plan with no military discount, which will result in a price increase of up to $20/line per month.

In some cases, you may be asked to provide additional details to verify your eligibility (such as Business customers with account type "B"). If further information is required, you’ll be notified right away, and will need to upload documents confirming your military status to complete your verification. The information provided is used solely for validation of status and is destroyed after validation. A confirmation of your validation status will be sent to you via email within 48 hours.
