“We know what it means to serve” is more than a slogan. USAA respects and honors the men and women in our nation’s military and their families who support them. That’s why we are committed to:

  • Achieving and sustaining a workforce made up of 25% veterans and military spouses or domestic partners.
  • Offering military and military spouses a first look from our recruiters.
  • Providing programs to attract, develop and retain military talent.

USAA values the unique skills and experience military servicemembers and veterans bring to our workforce.

Assistance Programs and Military Outreach

USAA’s commitment to the military community goes beyond offering world-class financial products and services. USAA also is committed to helping service members and their families successfully transition from the military into a civilian career. USAA goes beyond hiring – it has programs specifically aimed at hiring, onboarding, sponsoring, mentoring, training, and developing veterans and military spouses.

  • Employer Support of the Guard & Reserve (ESGR)

    We fully recognize, honor, and comply with the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act.

    We will provide our leaders with the tools they need to effectively manage employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve. We appreciate the values, leadership, and unique skills Servicemembers bring to the workforce and encourage opportunities to hire Guardsmen, Reservists, and Veterans. We continually recognize and support our country’s Servicemembers and their families, in peace, in crises, and in war.

  • Veteran Transition Leadership Development (VetsLeaD)

    VetsLeaD is an internal, 12-month program designed to develop and retain newly-hired USAA employees who have recently separated from the military. The VetsLeaD curriculum is designed to increase business acumen in order to maximize leadership capabilities in a corporate environment. VetsLeaD employees convene as a cohort for learning/mentoring activities once a month for 12 months. These activities are designed to bridge the acumen gap many veterans experience when leaving military service and enter into the corporate workplace.


    This employee resource group leverages the military and USAA experience of our veteran and military spouse employees to help create enterprise-wide awareness that fosters an appreciation, understanding, respect, and advocacy for the military culture and the unique membership we serve.

  • Hiring Our Heroes (HoH) Corporate Fellowship Program (CFP)

    The CFP is a 12-week program that provides transitioning service members with skills needed to succeed in the civilian workforce. The CFP conducts three cohorts a year at various military installations and host cities around the country. Service members participate during their last six months of military service. Applicants must have command approval and should reach out to the local/regional HoH Program Manager for more information.

  • Education With Industry (Air Force)/Training With Industry (Army)/Tours With Industry (Navy)

    The EWI/TWI programs embed active-duty officers and non-commissioned officers into corporate America for 10-12 months to allow the participants to learn and share business processes. The selected service members utilize their acquired skills to improve existing training and doctrine based on successful procedures and practices they gained during their program participation. Applicants must have command approval prior to applying for the program.

  • Onward to Opportunity (O2O)

    O2O is Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Family’s (IVMF) veteran training program deployed to military installations nationwide. This industry-focused career skilling program connects transitioning service members and active duty military spouses to high-demand careers in Customer Service, Information Technology, and Project Management – three high-demand careers at USAA. O2O trains service members and spouses on installations near communities where USAA has a significant presence, providing engagement opportunities that demonstrate our commitment to the military community.

  • Military Spouse Economic Empowerment Zone (MSEEZ)

    Hiring Our Heroes launched MSEEZ as a grassroots effort to combat the economic impact that military spouse unemployment and underemployment has on the 21st century military family. As a partner, USAA is committed to connecting military spouses with meaningful employment opportunities.
