Account beneficiary change

I have now received three "Request for Additional Information" regarding changing my account's beneficiary to my trust. The last two times I have called; each time I had to wait for hours to talk to someone.  The first time I called I was instructed on what to put in the "Memorandum of Trust" and that someone from the trust department would contact me.  No one contacted me but I returned the froms EXACTLY how I was instructed. I was then sent another "Request for Additional Information".  Again, I called and waited and told the agent what was going on, and after explaining the situation they put  me in touch with an "Advanced" level of service person and again, I put EXACTLY what the representative told me to put.  I have now received the third "Request for Additional Information" and have reached my end.  I have asked numerous times to speak with the team who reviews these "Memorandum of Trust" and am told time and time again that I cannot be put in touch in anyone from that department. If USAA cannot meet my needs by having a person assist me in completing this change then unfortuantely I will find another bank that can. I have been with USAA a long time and have seen their level of customer service erode over the years. I would love to speak to someone in management but I will not sit on hold for another minute.

I have experienced the same issue.  Not very happy with the service.  Not sure what was missing and why.
