USAA Expands Membership Eligibility

San Antonio-based USAA expanded its membership eligibility to include: military retirees, regardless of when they retired; military personnel who were honorably discharged on or after Jan. 1, 1996; and widows or widowers of military personnel killed in action while eligible. After they join, spouses and children of the above may also be eligible for membership.

“Today, USAA is stronger than at any time in our 86-year history, which enables us to offer the benefits of USAA membership to more military families than ever before,” said Joe Robles, USAA’s president and CEO.

USAA began as an officer-only association in 1922, opened to enlisted personnel in 1996, and today serves 6.4 million current and former military members and their families. USAA offers services for military families, providing them with insurance, investments and banking products as well as financial planning and advice.
