I have been a USAA member for decades and they continue to decline in every aspect I encounter. The customer service quality has degrated consistently. When they attempt to innovate they make the experience worse then when they started. An example of that is the redesign of the account pages. Why in...

There are organizations that want to take down America & its Constitution and those organizations hide under a “Slogan” th...
Very disappointed here, and sad too I suppose.

The $50MM giveaway along with the previous unreported $40MM giveaway is absolutely abhorrant. The nerve to just give members $$ away is totally unconscionable. They sold the brokerage and mutual funds and never would tell us what they did with the proceeds. It's obvious now. How I can withdraw my an...
