I have payed my home owners premiums on time for over 10 years. I have never once made a claim. The first time I call in I'm told that the water damage from a slow outdoor leak is not covered. That's where word games begin. If damage under your floor, which is out of human sight happens and you don'...

We quit going into Denver as it quit being a safe town. Since the legalization of marijuana Denver and Colorado have attracted, or possibly produced, low l...
What is USAA's policy on aluminum wiring in a house? Should the home owner replace all the wiring (most expensive)? or repair with an approved method of pigtailing (cheaper), or do nothing?
Purchased home in 2007 via USAA. They immediately sold it to USBank. That didn’t make me happy at all. In the past three years I have had lightning strike the house and kill my electronics. Was burglarized, had a tree limb smash through the carport. Then 8 months later an oak tree came down and smas...
