In response to your question, we have a few things to point out. This is one of the more exclusive memberships you can be involved in. It began back in 1922. It used to be reserved only for the high-ranking officers. Now, everything has changed. It changed back in the 1990's.
Any sort of military personnel are entitled to this coverage. It doesn't matter if you are a man or woman, you are still covered. If you are actively involved or retired, you are covered. If you received an honorable discharge, like you did, then you are technically covered. Now, once again, things changed back in 2009. Everything that we just stated is still technically true, but you might just want to verify it.
It's best to go to the USAA website and find out. You will need to verify your information first. You will need your social and birth information. You will need to have your enlistment information available too. You will need to verify your enlistment status. Let them know if you are retired or have been honorably discharged. They will ask you a series of questions during the process. This is just to verify that you are who you say you are.
If everything checks out okay, you will get information regarding your status and the type of coverage you will be entitled to receive. You will also receive information on how much you are going to get and when.
If you don't get any information, there might be an issue in the system. You will have to go through more of a verification process. Just hold tight. If you received an honorable discharge from the army, no matter what branch you served in, you will get your benefits. Some people might take longer than others.
