Known formally as United States Automobile Association, USAA Insurance is known for helping consumers save up to $400 on their auto insurance each year. The company was started in 1922 when a group of 25 Army officers met in San Antonio, Texas and got together to insure one another’s vehicles. The company was meant just to cover their vehicles, and they probably could never have imagined that the company would be serving over five million people more than 70 years later! Not only is USAA an insurance company, it also provides a whole host of financial services. Today, we like to think that the original founders of USSA Insurance Company would be proud that we have continued their philosophy of providing our customers with service, loyalty, honesty, and integrity.

Like many insurance companies, USAA is not a publicly traded insurance company, so there are no stockholders. Instead, as an insurance company, we answer to our members, or policyholders. Our policyholders rely on us to suggest products and services that meet all their insurance and financial needs. As an insurance company, USAA Insurance is able to provide affordable information to our consumers; in fact, a lot of it is offered for very small fees or no charge at all, thanks to our Advisors in our Financial Advice Center.
United States Automobile Association, or USAA, is not an insurance company for everyone. Membership in this insurance company is considered a privilege and is for those that are or have been in uniform. Luckily, this insurance privilege can be handed down to the member’s children and grandchildren. Those that can become members of this insurance company are:
- Active duty officers and enlisted military personnel.
- Former spouses and adult children of USAA members.
- National Guard and Selected Reserve officers and enlisted personnel.
- Officer candidates in commissioning programs (Academy, ROTC, OCS/OTS).
