My dad and uncles are very happy about this since non of them qualified for insurance until Dad got the phone call yesterday morning about the changes. He's been wanting to get their home/car insurance ever since he retired several years ago. I think it's fantastic that they've opened it to all former military
Too bad I still don't qualify for the insurance products. I'd sulk over that, but I LOVE USAA! Seriously! Couldn't be happier with them for all of my normal banking needs.
I hope you agree that all men and women who have honorably served in the U.S. Armed Forces deserve to do business with a financial services company that understands their unique needs, appreciates their service and does the right thing because it is the right thing to do.
Your USAA Board of Directors believes so, and I am very pleased to let you know that USAA membership is now open to anyone who has honorably served in the U.S. military.
Starting with our first eligibility expansion in 1923, the USAA family has grown by embracing an ever-larger portion of America's active duty, retired and separated military members. Each time, we have been careful to ensure that USAA has the financial strength, the staff and the technology to maintain our high standards for exemplary member service, competitive pricing and value. Opening our doors today to all veterans who have honorably served, regardless of dates or length of service, fulfills our mission and leaves no one behind.
If you know veterans who honorably served but haven't become USAA members, please share this news with them by clicking on the "Share USAA" button so that they may know the value of USAA and, by joining, their spouses and children can enjoy the benefits of membership as well.
