How USAA & GEICO do their military auto insurance?

Continue To My Download :

(United Services Automobile Association) is an insurance company that limits its customer base to members of the US military, a few other USG agencies, and their families. Started in 1922, the company is not a corporation, but an inter-insurance exchange. Members ‘own’ the organization and receive a share of its profits.

USAA is designed to handle the situations peculiar to the military, including overseas coverage and the specific risks that face them.

Its rates are very competitive and usually among the lowest because they cover only a restricted group. It offers other insurance than only for cars and also has extensive financial services including banking.

USAA is only for military personnel, so if you weren’t ever in the US military, don’t even think about it.  Yes, it’s great, but you can’t really expect to get it unless you qualify.  GEICO is good, but it’s for the general public so it doesn’t get the discounted rates that USAA members get.
