    Dad was drafted to Vietnam and never considered USAA. His fault? Y'all can decide. Funeral Directors and Insurance Agents have all the moneys. Bank CEOs act like they do but it all belongs to someone else.

    Just got a new policy with State Farm. Saved almost half forms what Progressive wanted to renew. I was happily surprised.

    We had USAA and were happy with their car insurance so we tried their home owners insurance. Rates were good and things were fine until we had to use it (small tornado/F1 wind damage to our house back in VA). USAA screwed us dry six ways to Sunday over that damage claim (refused to pay) and that was after they took 6 weeks to send out an adjuster. Neighbors with other companies were promptly taken care of.

    We asked them for auto quotes when we moved here a couple years ago and they jacked the rates up. We called around and Progressive (who I had for the motorcycle) gave us a quote that was half of what USAA wanted.

    (Good) Customer service is NOT in USAA's vocabulary - we don't recommend them for banking, loans or insurance to anyone - YMMV....

    Been with GEICO for some time now both cars and home. Excellent service for the last 20 years or so. Tried getting quotes from USAA a number of times as my daughter is insured there and likes them. The quotes I got back were never anywhere near what my GEICO payment was. Generally at least double my GEICO. Needless to say I am still with GEICO. Just finished a water damage claim for about $30k that happened over a year and a half ago just as COVID started ramping up. No issues along the way even with a year + wait due to no workmen would come in the house at the time.

    I have Allstate. I wanted to switch to Progressive. They have a special business use rider for gig delivery drivers like me that Allstate doesn't offer. But because I recently had my car totaled by an uninsured drunk driver Progressive wants more than twice what I'm paying now. They told me straight out it was mainly because of the accident, not the extra rider. The fact that the accident wasn't by fault makes no difference. Allstate had to pay out a claim to me so Progressive wants to screw me as hard as they can. Hard pass on that.

    We have 6 cars with USAA and four motorcycles with Progressive. Every few years I have a local broker do a quote but no one ever comes in lower than USAA. Some of our cars are old enough that their value has increased lately.
    Switched automobiles and home to USAA years ago after State Farm got too greedy.

    Your not alone, I deal with every insurance company there is and USAA is the worst. They screw over their customers and do not care. I have never personally had them but 5 out of 6 clients this year alone dropped them after claims were closed due to terrible customer service and refusal to pay.

    That hasn't been my experience, but I've only ever used their auto insurance.

    I think my insurance has gone up about 8%, but it's hard to tell since I'm always adjusting what's in storage or not.
    During the 10 years I've had USAA I've had a claim on my roof which was handled promptly. My grandchildren have had two automotive claims which were handled to my satisfaction.
    Your mileage may vary.
