  1. Your condo doesn't have internet? No ethernet plug or WiFi? If the TV is smart, under settings there should be an option for setting up a WiFi connection. The TV may also have an ethernet port.

    You can get a ROKU streamer device that plugs into the TV, if the TV doesn't have internet connection options. Google ROKU to see all the streaming options.

    Military retired pay stops upon death of the retiree!


    The Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) allows a retiree to ensure, after death, a continuous lifetime annuity for their dependents. The annuity which is based on a percentage of retired pay is called SBP and is paid to an eligible beneficiary. It pays your eligible survivors an inflation-adjusted monthly income.

    A military retiree pays premiums for SBP coverage upon retiring. Premiums are paid from gross retired pay, so they don't count as income. This means less tax and less out-of-pocket costs for SBP. The premiums are partially funded by the government and the costs of operating the program are absorbed by the government, so the average premiums are well below the cost for a conventional insurance policy. For most retirees, SBP is a good choice, but the government contribution is based on assumptions in average cases and may not apply equally to every situation.
