    There is a commercial on TV about some insurance that is available to military veteran's and their families. I haven't seen the commercial lately, and I can't remember what it is called. I believe it is something like USAXXXX. Do any of the military vets here have such insurance? I am mainly concerned about car insurance, but would also be interested in any other forms of insurance they offer.

    I want to see about applying for that since my dad is a vet. I imagine they will ask for a copy of his DD214 or something. If he can't find it, how do I request a new DD214 for him? I heard this insurance is the best, and is inexpensive. I am going to see about getting my dad signed up for that too.


    Your comments and help would be appreciated.

    We've been with USAA for 15 years. We have our car, rental, and home insurance with them along with a Savings and Checking account. The rates are very good, the service is unequalled and the coverage is fantastic. Highly recommended. Abner, a while back there was a thing where children of vets could get accounts with USAA too, might be something to look at for yourself. They have a car buying service that I've used to good results, and they have another service to help with moves that we used one time that was a good thing as well.


    Finding your DD214: https://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/


    You can request them online (need personal information like DOB and SSN) or you can fill out the forms and fax/mail them in. It's very easy to do but takes a while to process (I recently requested my late Uncles service information for burial in a national cemetery and it took about 6 weeks to get his dd214).

    Started with USAA back when I was a student officer at the field artillery school (Ft. Sill, OK) when I was a young Marine 2ndLt (FAOBC). A retired Army COL sold me my first USAA policy. Back then USAA restricted their policy coverage to Commissioned and Warrant officers. They’ve expanded their eligibility and services quite a lot over the years (banking, financial services, etc., etc.) Overall, an excellent firm … not necessarily the lesser in premiums though. However, they do distribute annual dividends every December among their policy holder members.
