I served in Army Reserve 1966-1972, my father (deceased) WWII vet. Am I eligible?

Asked July 12, 2016

1 Answer

The short answer is: only if your father was a signed up with USAA.

USAA began initially as an automobile insurance provider which provided insurance services to officers and cadets in military academies. It began among friends as a way of being able to save money on automobile insurance. From its humble beginnings, the organization has since expanded to provide services to all members of the Military and their families. USAA is a great organization which provides service at an affordable rate to members of the Military community, which is why membership is highly sought after.

USAA is a great insurance provider and financial institution which provides many member benefits. These benefits include: free ATMs, competitive interest rates, discounted renters insurance/auto insurance, financial advice, and assistance with deployment. The biggest reason why people join USAA is that it offers competitive interest rates.

One notable aspect is that descendants of WWII veterans, Korea Veterans, and veterans of all other wars are eligible for membership with USAA. However, the veterans must sign up for USAA first so that they are eligible to refer their children to the company. Additionally, reserve members are eligible for membership. Deceased individuals cannot refer their children for membership. However, an individual with reserve status should be eligible to join USAA on the basis of their military service.
