Re: USAA is not open to everyone anymore

You're either eligible or you're not. 

 

USAA and NFCU are in the business of supporting military members very distinct financial needs. 

 

You know if you're a military family member.  I'm sorry, but claiming membership through a deceased grandparent who served in WW2 does not make you a military family member. I'm glad I read about people's accounts frozen because they gained membership through a second cousin who served with a different last name. 

 

I earned my eligibilty for both these institutions, as have many others. But to suggest (and I've seen you post this Navy League backdoor on another site too) a donation to the Navy League makes you eligible is an absolute slap in the face to military families.  I have no sympathy for people who Navy has frozen their accounts because they get in via a roommate member.
