We have done our banking and financial planning with USAA for almost 40 years now. Their insurance, advice and financial Management is first rate. I have no doubt that the ease of banking; saving; low rate auto loans; and friendly phone staff (available 24/7 and always a person you can understand) were the reason I was able to completely retire at 55 when my term of service to the Air Force ended. Only one other of my peers (that I am aware of) was able to do this and he also was a USAA member.
Online banking with USAA is safe and convenient.
PM me if you want particulars. I highly recommend them to anyone who is eligible for full membership. Their loan and credit card interest rates for full members ROCK. I was offered the ability to finance my 5th wheel camper for 10 years. Pretty much unheard of for a camper. They also refund all ATM fees from anywhere up to 4 withdrawals per month.
They do not advertise the fact, but their banking arm (only) is open to non-military folks (interest rates and credit products are not the same as those who qualify for membership though.)
