Get a 30% discount on your cell service!

After many months (year’s maybe) of requesting a concession similar to regular employees we finally have it.  Your TelCo Retirees Association and a number of other similar associations have been requesting this concession each year as we meet with our AT&T contacts.  It is finally here and it didn’t come with great fanfare as you might have expected, but here is how you sign up.

Go to www.att.com/dep and follow the instructions there.  You will receive a follow up email confirming your discount within a couple of billing cycles.

Congratulations !!!
