If your father was a veteran, no matter what branch of the military, they may have USAA insurance. This is an insurance option that caters to veterans of all branches of the military. You can find out whether or not they had a policy, and if you were named beneficiary within their policies by doing a couple of things.

Before you call or ask for information about a USAA policy, look for paperwork. In your father's home, look around for any policy information, paperwork, bills, and correspondence. If they have any old bills, or policies lying around, make sure that you look for account numbers and more. This can help you figure things out fast.

In the case that you do not have any paperwork, and you aren't sure if your father had a policy with USAA, call the customer service number at 1-800-531-8722. When you call them, you will need to have a few things with you. Make sure that you have the following information, as it will help you get more information about the policy they may have had.

  • Full Name
  • Address
  • Social Security Number
  • Driver's License Number
  • Death Certificate

The representative that you speak to may ask you for the information found above. They may also ask you to email or fax them a copy of the death certificate. In the case that they do ask for that, follow along with their request. It's very important that you do this, otherwise you will not be able to move forward.

If you are uncertain about any of this, or need help, call USAA directly at 1-800-531-8722 and inquire about their policy. They will give you the steps to figure out whether or not they did in fact have a policy, the number, and how to either close or collect on the policy as needed. Just follow their lead.
