Increase in Premiums due Florida Disaster

The disaster in Florida is naturally extremely difficult and being concerned with premium increases is secondary to providing relief to those suffering now. But having been a USAA member for over 60 years, I know the member living in Lonesome Dove, USA will be notified  premiums go up with explanation that the claim load for Florida homeowners (many right in flood zones ) will require your coverage to be increased. 

Tell me USAA, I am wrong that past history is not harbinger in relation to Florida?


Thank you.

They do not care about the customers. All they care about is making money. Screw the hard working veterans and make a buck at every turn.

Forget about calling the number. They have zero knowledge and can not do a single thing for the customers except make them more angry. They have a truck load of excuses for everything. If it comes to making a buck they will screw over the customer.
