We had a solicitor come to the house asking to check our roof (6 year old home). My husband let him do it...he came down with cell phone pix of hail damage (are these fake pix?)...says he is with USAA and came file a claim to replace our so called damaged roof...all we pay is the USAA deductible. Is...
I posted on here a couple years ago about an on going disaster with my Nation Star mortgage, affiliate of Usaa, to stream refi, my mortgage from 15 to 30 or lower payments and which I never returned to report that it ultimately ended in me signing yet another set (3rd) closing documents over a year ...
I have been insured by USAA for 35 years. They are not even remotely the company I remember. All that said here is my experience to share and let folks make up their own mind.

It is very disappointing since I have homeowners, auto on multiple vehicles, umbrella, and life insurance. It is going to be a lot of work to find another insurer and I wou...
Twice in 10 days USAA screwed things up! First took 4 days to get a car loan for me and son (both members) both of us have savings and a good credit and credit to debit ratio. We had to go with capital one to get the loan (10 minutes) better rate too! Then mortgage payment lost, yup to Nationstar, n...
USAA has impressed me with the professional handling of my House Fire Insurance Claim. USAA has helped me through this stressful time. Thank you USAA
