I first have to say that for almost 23 years i have never had any issues with USAA. However that has changed this past year. Back last december had a claim filed for water damage that as of now October 10 have essentially gotten no work accompolished. There are 2 issues that have really gotten my wi...
Hi Everyone,We were pre-approved through USAA, our realtor warned us and said you do NOT want to use them. She stated in all her years as a realtor she has had one entirely go to close. Her company actually throws out any offers now from USAA. My husband and I were shocked we have been with them for...
We had hail damage in March 2018. USAA was very quick to issue initial check and eventually subsequent checks. The problem is with Insuranceclaimcheck.com We have requested the half way inspection and we have encountered delay after delay. To the point where they are the ones canceling the inspectio...
10/8/18. This message is for Mr. Stuart Parker, USAA CEO. I received my 2019 primary residence USAA homeowners insurance renewal policy on 10/3/18. The total policy premium increased 25% from $2,080 to $2,642. I did not change or increase any coverages in Section I: the automatic dwelling, other str...
I Filed a homeowner claim due to sump pump failure that occurred during hurricane Florence. My entire basement floor was covered with water.

I just recently switched my homeowners policy to USAA in May because I was informed that it was the "gold standard" in insurance. I recently filed a claim for property damage caused by hurricane Florence. The claim was rejected because the adjuster stated it was not considered an additional structur...
I have been a USAA banking and insurance member for about 16 years. So when it was time for my wife and I to buy a new house here in Denver, I did not even think about using anyone else to get a mortgage. Why would I? USAA has been so awesome with such great customer service for myself and all of my...
Hi everyone,I am very sad to read all the negative posts , we have been members for 11 years. I am also sad to say we are now in underwriting 2nd phase after spending over 5000 dollars. Why preapprove is then deny us, if USAA does this we are done and will also pull all our accounts. Our loan proces...
Briana,Why does USAA censor the writing of Public Communication in the Members Community? I posted a comment last night about USAA and it is now gone. Is USAA concerned of the truth that it would be harmful and sensitive to USAA image. That USSA is afraid of the truth of how poor the service within ...
