It looks like you would be eligible:

I love USAA! They have been so good to us. Hope you have the same experience.

I'm a member thanks to my father having been in the Air Force and bringing me in as a family member
I have to agree - USAA has been fantastic, both for auto and home insurance, and more than likely for my next mortgage

Yes, the National Guard is elligible. However, you said "served" -- membership is limited to either those actively serving or recently retired. I'm not fully sure what the cutoff for "recently retired" is, but I know it's something like 1-2 years. More information can be found in the "Become a Member" section of www.usaa.com if you're interested.

I originally was eligible as the son of an active duty Navy officer (When only military officers could join). I kept USAA all thru my enlisted USAF career. And now enlisteds are eligble in their own right. Yes, best insurance going, IMHO!

My ex-father in law was in the coast guard reserves back in the '90's, that's how I got in. I think all he owned for a uniform was a hat. After the divorce USAA still allowed me to continue membership. Apparently it's 'Once a member, always a member' unless the original member-ex-spouse complains, then you're on a probationary membership of some sort.

It's "once a member, always a member", but not necessarily at the same rates. USAA has different membership "pools". Once you are on non-active status, your rating changes. Also, there are different risk pools for enlisted vs officer, etc.

You're right about 1-2 years after retirement from the military. Strange, you get better treatment from non-military associations/businesses than USAA and this organization was started by retired officers!
