USAA makes up their rules as they go along. Be careful in your dealings with them

I have been an USAA wealth management customer for around 10 years. Yesterday I tried to deposit a $49,000 check. I have deposited many checks made out to the same payee without issue, but today I was told that USAA will not be able to deposit my check. Further, they said they sent back to me. At this point my USAA online account shows that the $49,000 check has been deposited, so I am unable to submit the check to another bank. Without an USAA status letter the check will remain un-deposited. USAA has refused to cooperate. USAA's lack of follow through in removing the funds from USAA could prove disastrous if I redeposit the check. This leaves me in the unenviable position of not being able to do anything with my check.

This is just my most recent problem. In the summer of 2012 while traveling overseas I required USAA's assistance with a credit card identity theft issue to no avail. I was unable to protects myself by canceling the card, I was unable to get a usable replacement card, and USAA kept me on the phone for several hours in the middle of the night in Israel. Additionally, I have also had to escalate the handing of several insurance claim matters due to incompetent customer service agents.

I have referred many customers to USAA over the years, but no longer. Both their banking and insurance customer service representatives have not performed consistently and have been unable to provide me with rational explanations for their actions relative to my accounts. With significant assets in investment and bank accounts one would expect I would be treated with their elite level of service, but today I was informed their customers are all treated the same, contrary to what they have been leading me to believe over the past 10 years.

Anyone who wants to be able to reliably depend on the treatment they receive from their bank (and insurance company) should seriously consider going somewhere other than USAA.

So far, excellent!

I am so happy to have opened a checking account here. Love that I can deposit a check by scanning and that it will be in my account immediately. Love that USAA returns ATM fees. I just made the switch from a bank that charges as many fees as possible. Even my direct deposit paycheck goes in a day earlier with USAA. Amazing!
