My brokerage accounts have not been visible to me on-line for almost 2 weeks now.  I assume this is due to a faultly and possibily mismanaged ongoing conversion.  Even those in the Brokerage Group are having difficulty in locating my accounts and providing me with any information for the past four days.  No one within USAA can even advise me how long this situation will continue.  USAA supervisor Christine Doron(SP?) at X-38375 has all the details.  F.Y.I., I'm a 44 year customer and I want my brokerage acc'ts and the "old USAA" back!!!!! -----
