I just received an e-mail that they have expanded eligibility to include some folks who had previously been ineligible. If you are in one of the following groups and want to get more information, leave me an e-mail address and I'll have them send you information on how to sign up.
USAA MEMBERSHIP IS EXPANDING
For over 85 years, USAA has been committed to facilitating the financial security of military families. In order to further this mission, USAA membership has been expanded.
USAA membership has been expanded to include:
- Retired military personnel, regardless of when they served
- Those who have honorably separated from the military since 1996
And, USAA membership remains open to:
- Children of USAA members
- Active duty officers and enlisted personnel
- National Guard and Selected Reserve officers and enlisted personnel
- Officer candidates in commissioning programs
Today, more military families than ever can enjoy the exclusive benefits of USAA membership. From insurance and banking to investments and financial planning, our priority is to help you achieve your financial goals.
I sincerely hope that none of you fit the following criterion, but the e-mail I received also mentioned the following as being eligible: "Widows and widowers of military members killed in action while eligible." I can only think of one: Lynn, if you are reading this, and if you and Scott weren't already USAA members when he was killed, please look into this.
