Newest USAA Member

I am now a full member of USAA.  But the sad part is they do not offer auto insurance to FL residence.  That was my purpose for trying to become a full member.

I was aware they seriously limited Home, fire and renters insurane in Florida, but was unaware they had issues with Auto.

Your credit score is an aspect of your credit profile. Important? yes but just an aspect. Contributing/supplemental information determines the finer point of the deal. Ask any question, respect me not to get mad if the answer is not the affirmation you are looking for,

I think they do offer auto insurance in Florida.  It may be an eligibility problem with my account.  My dad didn't have any insurance products with them.

They definitely offer auto insurance in Florida. But, according to the USAA website, if your father didn't have USAA insurance products, then you are, indeed, restricted from acquiring auto & home owners insurance. You can still obtain life insurance, however. You can also have banking products, some credit cards (YMMV on which ones), and investment products.

 

BTW- what branch of the service did your dad serve in?

Thanks, LilMirth!  My father served in the Army National Guard.  I was able to get auto insurance.   I signed-up this morning.

I do not think so. Only immediate family.

How'd you manage that? Their customer service told me that since the original referring member (my mother-in-law) has never had insurance from them, we can't get insurance either. And since USAA's insurance rates are and have always been higher than whomever she goes through, she has no interest in considering their insurance products. When I was asking about it I was put on hold for a few minutes while they contacted someone else and and then came and told me the only way we'd be able to access insurance services from USAA was if my mother-in-law signed up for insurance from them first - which isn't happening. Did you find a way around that?
