Vivint’s Military Policy

Vivint’s Military Policy

If you don’t have any connections to the military — if you don’t have a relative, friend, or neighbor in uniform — you may not know that May 16, 2015 is Armed Forces Day. Of course, that’s one of the reasons why the first Armed Forces Day was held more than 60 years ago: To increase awareness of America’s armed forces and the types of job performed by the our  servicemen and women.

Of course, Armed Forces Day was also created to honor and acknowledge the people who protect our nation by air, sea, and land. As a former military spouse (my husband recently separated after serving 10 years as an Air Force officer), I always appreciated when people would express their gratitude toward my husband for his service, whether it was on Armed Forces Day or any of the other 364 days of the year.

I also deeply respected businesses that went the extra mile year-round to accommodate the unique needs of military families like ours. Although we were lucky to remain in one location for the duration of my husband’s commitment, we saw many military friends come and go, stopping only briefly in our town before relocating across the country or overseas.

Luckily, there are companies like Vivint that offer special military policies on their services. Vivint’s military policy on their home security system, for example, includes:

Cancellation policy – Vivint will cancel a service agreement for an active duty or reserve military personnel who is being deployed.

Move policy – Military members who are being officially relocated to a new residence within the US can move their Vivint system without paying the standard $99 activation fee or extending the terms of their agreement.

Deferment policy – Military personnel can defer payment up to six months in the event of a temporary assignment away from their permanent residence.

On this Armed Forces Day, when civilians are saying “thank you” to the members of our military, I want to thank businesses like Vivint for making life as a military family just a little bit easier.
