With a score of 844 for life insurance and 902 for annuities (on a 1,000-point scale), USAA significantly outpaced industry averages of 763 and 778, respectively. This is the seventh year in a row that USAA has achieved the highest score for life insurance, and second year in a row for annuities. *While the company’s life insurance and annuities are available to the public, USAA is not eligible to be officially ranked due to USAA’s overall membership requirements.
