    You're very welcome. I don't know how long it's been offered. My daughter and I have had the evolving contract for around 20 years, adding her husband to the group, then two grandkids, and even her mother - changing companies only thru mergers, and there were a few of those. Several years back we transferred it to her name to get her a state school employee discount, but that ended when she became vice principal at a private school. That school discount was still on our record even tho not effective, and that may have prevented their system from bringing up this possible discount - but I stumbled across it on their web site by accident a couple of weeks ago. Or maybe they just don't advertise it, so in case of that, I shared it here.

    My first application did not go thru as the contract is now in her name while the DD-214 is in mine, but a phone call tonight fixed that. They promised to approve it without having to transfer the contract again.

    When it was her employment that earned the discount, I let them apply all of that to their share of the bill. I could use the same logic to apply this discount to my share, lowering my current use of our Unlimited everything plan to hardly anything - but I'll share this with the family group fully this time. That's almost $7/month for each of us, not a big savings each, but as a group - a nice discount.

    We shall see said the blind man. I got a jpeg of my DD214 uploaded. Appreciate the information. I’m good for a brewski for you for that one. Thanks!

    Great! I'm still having problems getting mine thru since we changed ownership to my daughter's name. I am the listed account manager tho, so it should have gone thru by now. I'll get on them again.

    It was faster than expected on my part, but I am the account holder. Good luck and thanks again!

    I got my email confirmation on the second try, finally. I was thinking about transferring ownership back to me if needed, except their rules say that I didn't need to so was probably going to be stubborn if needed.

    No one else has committed here, but I'd think that many Veterans have Verizon and don't know about the discounts - so I hope they read this.

    Also good for active military, government employees, cops, first responders, other organizations, and many corporations.

    I think that may have been one of the easiest processes ever to save that much money. Almost $500/year!
