SAN ANTONIOUSAA’s approach to financial management on behalf of its members delivered strong results in 2017, according to the organization’s annual Report to Members.


Major hurricanes and devastating wildfires impacted millions of USAA members and resulted in a record nearly $2.3 billion in catastrophe claims paid. Despite these disasters, USAA grew its membership, invested in technology to further enhance service, hired talented people, and returned money to its members.


“We take our responsibilities to our members very seriously including being there when they need us and managing their association for the future,” said USAA CEO Stuart Parker. “The mission and values that drove USAA’s founding still drive us today.”


USAA reported the following financial results for 2017:

  • A net worth of $30.6 billion, up nearly $2 billion for the year.
  • Membership growth of more than four percent, up over 500,000 to 12.4 million members.
  • More than $1.5 billion returned to those we serve in the form of distributions, dividends, and bank rebates and rewards.
  • Almost $2.3 billion paid in catastrophe claims.
  • Annual revenue of $30 billion.
  • Assets over $155 billion.
  • Net income of $2.4 billion.

Beyond the Balance Sheet

USAA’s Report to Members looks beyond the financials to provide a holistic view of the previous year and the future direction of the organization.

When it comes to serving members and protecting their assets and privacy, USAA answered nearly 85 million calls from members, with nine out of 10 saying they were extremely satisfied. And, we prevented almost $3.2 billion in fraud losses.
