The History of USAA
Founded by Army officers whose occupations were too risky to be insured by other companies, the group banded together to self-insure and formed the United States Army Automobile Association. In 1923, membership was opened to commissioned officers serving in other branches of the armed forces and renamed the United Services Automobile Association.
In 1996, eligibility was extended to enlisted personnel serving on active duty, National Guard members and selected reserves. Eligibility expanded in 2009 to all who are serving or who have honorably served in the U.S. military.
USAA’s legendary service is driven by employees who know what it means to serve. Nearly 1 in 4 of its more than 33,000 employees are veterans or military spouses, and in 2018 it was named the 19th-best company to work for in a Fortune survey.
With more than $30 billion in revenue in 2017 and $30 billion in net worth, USAA-owned and managed assets totaled more than $277 billion in 2017. Corporate responsibility is a major tenet of the association, with donations totaling more than $39 million in 2017, including both employee- and foundation-funded programs.
Military ties run deep at USAA, with partnerships established with more than 50 veteran service organizations, including the Veterans of Foreign Wars and Disabled American Veterans. The company employs more than 40 field representatives operating near major military organizations to assist members and their families.
