I have the Instant Ink $11.99 plan which gives me 300 pages per month and a total of 900 rollover pages. I am billed on the 5th of each month. The new billing period begins on the 4th. I have always thought that the new billing period would begin at midnight on the 4th. There have been 3 or 4 times (in the past 2 years) when I realized that I only had 1 or 2 days left to print on that particular month's billing period before the next billing period would start. At those times I had all 300 pages left plus around 750 - 800 rollover pages. So I would rush to print out as much as possible (I actually have many articles I need to print out) so I wouldn't lose any rollover pages. I always managed to print at least 300 pages. I would stop printing at 11:59pm on the 3rd of each month so I wouldn't use any of the next month's plan pages. I never want to print many pages at the beginning of a new billing period unless I have something very important to print. I worry that I may run out of pages and then will have to pay for additional pages.
Now, I just received a notification which said the next billing period begins at 9 am UTC. What does that mean? What time is that in EST in the United States? Could I actually print later than 11:59 pm on the 3rd without using any pages from the next billing period?
Thank you very much for your help.

9AM UTC is 4AM EST or 5AM EDT. See here. It appears you could continue to print for a few more hours.
