USAA Dividends Are Here!

Because we pay on line, our dividend checks were deposited to the account on record. We got up this morning to find two deposits totally $467.00 or so extra dollars! Hurray! I don't know why they are separate but they are. Maybe because we have home owners and auto.

If you see a sign that says "Peep Show", that doesn't mean that they're letting you look at presents before Christmas.

Wow!!! We have home owners and auto also. We usually get 50 or so dollars. Is that a dividend for your checking/savings accounts or for your insurances? I would do a happy dance on the front porch if I look in the mail and the check is there! We leave for WDW on Friday. A few extra dollars would be super!

That is just for our insurances. We have been members since 1987. Maybe that is why we get good sized dividends. Also, over the years we have paid a lot for insurance because we have had a lot of drivers on our policy. Now we have four.

Wow, I don't think we've gotten a dividend check from USAA for the past few years! What are we doing wrong? I could use a check to help pay for Christmas gifts or for our Mommy/Daddy Disney trip in Feb.

I got my 1st dividend last year. It was around $50.00. I only have auto insurance with them. I think when I asked before that if you actually the one who qualifies you get more. I only qualify through my Dad.

I used to love those USAA dividend checks in December. I have been a USAA member since the early 90's and that extra money always came in handy! But, we moved to NC and there is an issue with the dividends and NC Bureau of Insurance. So, we no longer get the dividend...we get a credit on our insurance in Jan statement. Either way is great but I sure did love the extra cash! We have home owners, auto, and all the children's savings accts are through them. We saved over $500 on our homeowners this year switching from State Farm.

Last year was the first year I didn't get a dividend check. I got some tiny little credit on my insurance instead.

We used to have car and renters insurance through them, but now since we have a house with homeowners, maybe we'll get more back.

Wow! That would cover about 6 months of insurance for a nice, newer car around here! How much is auto insurance where you are?

We have four cars total, three newer cars and one very old car with 2 under 25 drivers. DS#3 pays his own insurance and its about the amount of the dividend we received. Ct has high insurance rates, not as bad as Ma.

Nice!

My DD mentioned they switched to car insurance with USAA and I think they also have a bank acct with them.

They sure could use a check, whatever size.

I agree that no one can even come close to them. We have our house and two vehicles with full coverage for around $155 a month. I am so spoiled. I didn't realize just how lucky we were until some girls that I work with were fighting to find anything under $300 a month for ONE car. Yipes!

Did your rates go up very much when your kids turned 16, Dawn? My DD will be 16 next year and I was wondering if it would hurt much.

Our dividend may be smaller since we have it through my DH's father. He was on it when he turned 18 so he got to keep it.

Tell her not to get her hopes up. I've yet to get a dividend check from USAA. We have car insurance, credit cards(best interest rates), Roth IRAs, and banking. We have something called the Subscriber Savings Acct(SSA). It was not our choosing but just something we have. All dividend checks go into that until a limit is reached and then we can receive a dividend check. The only way to get to the SSA money is death or divorce. I don't want that money that bad to do something drastic
