Here are the current membership requirements for USAA. Many of these requirements have been updated as of 2015. You cannot get any kind of benefits unless you or any of your family members are veterans or any other military personnel.

It used to be that USAA membership was restricted to only those who served in the military or some other form of service. As of 2009-2015, you can be a member of a military family member and still receive the benefits.

You say you are divorced. This should not pose a problem in any way, though some of your benefits may be restricted. You can still get any kind of banking and car insurance through them. You can also get renter's insurance. Now some restrictions may apply here. Did your grandson serve in any capacity? Is he still serving? Is he retired? As long as he has served in some capacity in one of the branches he may also meet the requirements.

You may not be able to try out any products they offer. This may or may not affect you in any way. Your best bet is to contact one of the representatives. Tell them you are divorced. Tell them about your current relationship with your father-in-law. Did you part with your spouse on good terms? How do you get along with your father-in-law currently?

The worst case scenario is that you may only be limited to partial coverage, unlike your spouse who served. USAA has specific rules they have to abide by these days. They will have the answers you are looking for. Your benefits will probably not be affected, but it is better to talk to them anyway.

They will ask you for your contact information and the best time to contact you. You can do this online and over the phone.
