Yes. Parents can join USAA. Both Banking and limited medical are available to them.

Traditionally, the USAA is only open to those individuals who made the sacrifice to join the military. Although, the bank is beginning to open their accounts and doors to those who are related to service personnel. These individuals are sons, daughters, and even parents. While these individuals are welcomed by the institution, they need to keep in mind that if they were not servicemen and women, that the full range of services will not be available to them.

There are a number of forms that must be filled out if a non-service person desires to join. This can also be worked around. In some locations, like Delaware, one can get credit monitoring with a simple phone all. That call will give the person a member number so that credit can be watched. Once this member number has been issued, non-military individual can then go into a branch location and open up a checking or savings account, or both.

If the above are not the desired options, there are other ways to join. Some civilian companies allow for the membership with USAA if you work for them or have worked for them a specific number of years. Some of these companies perform military service, others do not.

Others have stated that member numbers and the such are not a necessary facet to getting an account with USAA. Some state that they are able to get an account simply by going in and making a deposit. Another option that may be available to some is whether or not they have an association with a specific college or organization.

Parents do have the option of joining, but again some services of the bank are only for those who have actually served in the military. Things like their home owners and car insurance policies are only for service members. This does not mean that affordable policies cannot be had elsewhere, t simply means that insurance is a sector of the services provided by USAA that are only for actual military personnel.
