USAA and NFCU membership question

My grandfather served in WWII, but I'm not sure if he was a member of either USAA and NFCU - he is now deceased.

 

Does anyone know if I'm eligible to join?

[ Edited ]

Easiest would be go directly to the source....just call NFCU or USAA and ask them. Worst they can say is no. Like mentioned anyone can join USAA but not be a full member. I would just call and ask NFCU or use their eligibility button on the site.

| Walmart $5k | Amazon $5k | NFCU $20k | NLOC $15k | Lowes $17k | BoA $15k | Freedom $3k | IT $4.5k | CSP $5k | Marriott $5k | AMEX TE $18k | Alaska $5k |
Starting Scores: EQ:571 EX:??? TU:597
Current Scores: EQ:694 EX:714 TU:711
Goal Scores: 700
across the board

Bumping this to see what you found out. USAA is open to veterans, but I don't know about membership via deceased veterans. Please post an update.

AFAIK, if you are using descendancy as a basis for full USAA membership, one of your parents must have been a full member (they must have had an insurance product with USAA).  A grandparent cannot be used as a basis for full membership.  I think whether they are still living or not is irrelevant; it is current or prior membership status that is important.  As others have said however, you can still join as a partial member.  USAA is very precise in outlining their membership criteria.

Re: USAA and NFCU membership question

Yes, that's how I joined. Certainly, though, there must be an exeption made for descendants of the deceased. I'd like to think so, anyway.

USAA has some pretty strict guidelines for membership elegibility.  Exceptions are very rare.
