USAA Bank is the Texas-based banking component of the United States Automobile Association, a privately held financial services company offering an array of insurance, banking, investment, and lending products and services. The company’s target market and membership field is limited to members of the U.S. military and their immediate families. The company also has a history of superior credit and service ratings, in addition to its repeated recognitions by major publications for being one of the best companies to work for.

On its personal banking side, USAA Bank offers deposit and loan products to serve its members savings and lending needs. Checking, savings, Certificate of Deposit (CD) and IRA CD accounts are available, as well as auto, home, and personal loans. USAA’s checking accounts feature a free checking option that offers free mobile deposit, BillPay, funds transfers to and from any bank, and zero liability for unauthorized charges. The bank also has a secure checking account option that comes with a monthly fee in exchange for identity theft protection services and a World MasterCard debit card. The savings account offering has no monthly service fee and comes with a debit card that can be used at any ATM nationwide. Transaction fees garnered from non-USAA ATM partners are reimbursed up to a certain amount each month. The savings account also features free funds transfers and tiered interest rates that grow as the account balance reaches certain thresholds. Both the checking and savings account offerings come with USAA’s financial management software, MoneyManager, which helps track expenses and map out a budget.

Certificates of Deposit (CDs) and IRA CDs are also available and can be opened in term lengths ranging from 1 month to 7 years. CDs come in three forms: Variable, Adjustable Rate, and Fixed Rate, which allow for additional deposits, a one-time rate adjustment, and no additional deposits, respectively.

USAA Bank online banking provides a secure and versatile web-based system through which members can manage their deposit accounts, as well as other accounts they have with USAA. The Internet platform makes it easy to accomplish tasks like Bill Pay, mobile deposit, and funds transfers. USAA MoneyManager is the bank’s proprietary financial management system that gives members the ability to track their spending and budget. USAA’s mobile banking system consists of a mobile optimized website and mobile banking apps to make banking from a smartphone or tablet device easy and convenient.

USAA Bank was originally established as a federal savings bank with the FDIC in 1983 and is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas. The USAA group began after a group of Army officers insured one another when they could not obtain auto insurance due to their “high-risk” stereotype. Over 60 years later the banking component of the insurance company was started. USAA Bank serves its members through a limited number of financial service centers located across the country, as well as through online and telephone banking representatives.

USAA Military Banking

I loved using USAA banking! Everything about it was great - navigating online, directions, etc. Only problem was the offices were not located where we were stationed at the time so we were unable to have any face to face contact.

USAA review from young woman

Posted by: KayRe123 | Jul 25, 2016

I have had a checking and savings account with USAA for many years, as does my husband. It's a great bank to be a part of, and the customer service is outstanding. Every time I call, every representative I talk to is very friendly, helpful, and has a caring demeanor. The only thing I really have to complain about is their overdraft fees. I know that overdraft fees are very typical with banks, however, as most USAA members are part of the military, they should be more lenient with the fee. Other than that one small complaint, USAA does an outstanding job with customer service, their online website and mobile app, as well as their products they offer.

Great Online Bank

Posted by: KaylinO | Jul 14, 2016

I'm pretty new to USAA bank, but not to online banking. I only do my banking online and I hate to go into an actual bank to do my business. The last bank I was at had horrible banking, and I can say with confidence that USAA has a much smoother interface. I log in and get all the information I want to see right away. Security feels good. If I get my password wrong, you can be damn sure they'll hit me with some security questions.

Setting up my bank account was a little complicated because they are situated in Texas and I live in another state. My husband already had a bank account with them however, so he just called them up and helped me get it set up. I had my bank account the same day. My favorite things about this bank is I don't get charged for having an account, and you can set your savings account so that it will insure you don't get back draft fees if you forget how much you have in your checking account.

I have an online store, and I've had no problems getting money into my account. Everything works well.

Very Unacceptable

I've banked with USAA foe 5 plus years, having deposited 15,000 for investment purposes. Each person I spoke with regarding intention and options varied from advisor to advisor. Recently my regular checking account was hacked by a third party I had no knowledge of.
The actions of this individual was to deposit an.obvous fraudulent US GOVERNMENT CHECK then attempt to withdraw it. USAA took the action to turn my account info a deposit ONLY status. While I appreciate and recognize this action was to protect other depositors. For them to not allow me access to the direct deposit I've received monthly from the VA is beyond comprehension.
I have therefore decided to close my account with them. While this appears to most as sour grapes, believe me its not. Customer service recently has fallen significantly. Both in quality and access. If one has a problem then resorting to the Executive Resolution team is the only manner to have issues resolved.
I hope that anyone considering this institution give this a second thoughts.
