This is an insurance company that wants to masquerade as bank to steal more money from service members.
After 17+ years with USAA, they suddenly decided that they would not insure my motorcycle anymore. I had a motorcycle insured with them before I ever even had a car.
They referred to me to Progressive, and assured me the same "exceptional customer service". Well, Progressive wanted 7x what I was paying for motorcycle insurance! Partly because I no longer had the multicar discount and I was a new customer etc etc.
I switched to State Farm and now I pay less than I was with USAA and have a $250 deductible instead of $500!
The folks at USAA are very nice. They explained that they didn't have the "experience to rate a motorcycle", so I had to switch to Progressive. ARE YOU KIDDING ME! They are an INSURANCE COMPANY that cannot write insurance polices! Yet they want Soldiers to trust them with their money, daughter's college fund, mortgage, auto loan?
USAA is no better than the competition. In fact, they are worse because they pretend to be part of the military family. Please don't follow them blindly as I did for so many years.
My husband and i are desperate for help! My husband has been a member of usaa for years (my two active military sons are, as well), but we have been denied our deposited funds. My husband deposited his paycheck 7 days ago from today, and was initially given access to $500 to aid us during the wait. My husband was told it would take 5 days to clear. Two days later the $500 access was removed. My husband has called numerous times and even emailed but nobody will help us. My husband called his employer's bookkeeper to ask if the check had cleared, and was told that it had.
My husband had received an email from the ceo of usaa assuring him that the matter would be investigated and we would hear from an usaa rep. We had not heard from anyone from the usaa's office. Finally today, my husband was able to contact the ussa's office that could remove the hold. The woman named "erica" refused. Even after my husband explained that i'm disabled and unable to see my doctor, buy my medication, fuel to get to work, and to buy food. We are not asking for a loan, we are asking for access to the money my husband works hard for. The latest date for release is next friday, the friday my husband gets paid again. The next course of action is contacting an attorney. We are desperate for help!
They charge you $8 to overnight a new card but they wont tell you! They instead snail mail you a card, then when you cal land ask they will for a fee overnight you a card but only if you ask and that card will be an exact replica you know just in case someone stole your card enroute!!! Smart huh?
Then since its an online bank only. The FDIC will hold any check $1 over your normal everyday balance so for 2 weeks you dont get a penny from that car you sold! Smart? It gets better. Any notion you dont understand a charge automatic shutdown you dont know what something is for and call to ask automatic shutdown your in kuwait and ask a question. You guessed it you dont eat for 2 weeks. Then theyre auto and insurance is hundreds of dollars more than anyone else
