Recent Questions Our son-in-law is a USAA member (Navy). Can we join also?

Can I get USAA insurance from son in law
Although I am not a licensed agent for USAA, it is my understanding that you need to be a child or spouse of an established member to get a policy. Meaning, you aren't eligible to get your own policy away from your son-in-law.
Does USAA membership extend to grandchildren
From my knowledge, your parent's would also have to be members in order for you to qualify. But, as I'm not an agent for USAA, I would call them and speak to an insurance agent directly.
Does my son-in-law's status as a Marine qualify me as USAA member?
USAA membership extends to spouses, children, and possibly parents. Assuming your child (who is married to your son-in-law) is on the membership as well, you may be able to qualify.
