If you have a Verizon Wireless card and only Verizon...You can mothball (turnoff with no payment due) your Broadband card for three months by calling Verizon. The fee is $15.00 and your wireless card will be mothballed for three months.
BEFORE THE END OF THE THREE MONTHS YOU CAN CALL AGAIN, pay the $15.00 fee again and mothball your card for another three months for a total of six months AND you can convert your wireless account to a family plan...and get out of the contract, by adding an additional phone for $9.99 a month to a qualifying account. If you have a used cell they can activate that or you can but a cheapie from Verizon and activate that for a small fee.

HCTC Latest News, Overview and Background
What is the HCTC and who is eligible?
The Health Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC) is an important benefit that pays 80% of a qualified health plan premium for eligible individuals. The HCTC is a unique tax credit that individuals can receive either monthly as their health plan premium becomes due or yearly as a credit on their federal tax return.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) administers the HCTC. The following individuals are potentially eligible for the tax credit:
1. Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) pension recipients who are at least 55 years old
What is the monthly HCTC?
Most tax credits are paid out when you file your federal taxes. However, health plan premiums can be expensive and some people need help to pay them each month as they become due instead of when they file their taxes.
The monthly HCTC allows you to receive the HCTC in the form of a payment to your health plan on a monthly basis as your premium payments become due after you have paid your portions of the health insurance premiums to the HCTC Program.
What is the yearly HCTC?
The yearly HCTC is paid out when you file your federal taxes. You must complete and submit IRS Form 8885, Health Coverage Tax Credit, to claim the yearly HCTC on your federal tax return. The instructions on the form provide guidance on who may claim the HCTC and what documents you must provide with IRS Form 8885.
If you do not have all the required documents, you may not receive the HCTC as a refund or a credit against any taxes you owe. You can get IRS form 8885 on the IRS website or by calling the IRS at 1-800-TAX-FORM
