Founded in Texas in 1922, the United Services Automobile Association (USAA) is an insurance, banking, and financial services corporation focused on serving the military community. The company, founded by 25 U.S. Army officers looking to insure each other's vehicles through a reciprocal inter-insurance exchange, has since expanded to offer related services such as life and homeowners insurance.

Overall Rating: 8.5 / 10 (Excellent)

USAA is an fine choice for US service men and women and veterans. The company's considerable experience in working with military families sets it apart from most other companies. Its well-established financial strength suggests that it has been well-managed in its 95 years of existence. Since the company only serves military members, veterans, and their families, however, it cannot be considered an option for the general non-military customer.

Financial Strength

Financial Strength - 10 / 10

USAA has the highest-rated financials of any major US homeowners insurance company. Standard & Poor's, AM Best, and Moody's all give the company exceptionally high marks. The company has been in business for 95 years and has nearly 6% of the US homeowners insurance market, which provides a cushion against localized disasters and claims events.

Customer Experience

Customer Experience - 6 / 10

While USAA does an admirable job at serving members and former members of the US military and their families, it is not generally available to people without a military connection, which is a significant exclusion. Although the company is rated A+ by the BBB, it has a substantial number of BBB and NAICS complaints.

I have been a USAA member for 55 years...! I've always had an outstanding relationship with them - until recently. They have slowly evolved from a smaller, more select clientele group with incredibly good service and business practices to an apparent desired position of opening the flood gates and insuring anyone and everyone in order to achieve the highest volume possible. Now, the bean counters have taken over and I'm dumping them over a $200 ridiculous position on a recent claim I submitted. Just unbelievable!! I've paid in tens of thousands of dollars for auto, boat, home, and aircraft insurance for 55 years and now they want to hassle me for a $200 item....after 55 years of... Read More
