USAA's umbrella insurance provides members additional liability coverage that goes above the limits of their home and car insurance. An umbrella policy with USAA also provides coverage for other types of claims such as libel, slander, and invasion of privacy.
USAA is better known for its financial services geared to meet the needs of current and former military service members and their immediate families. The company also offers life insurance, home insurance, and car insurance.
USAA's Umbrella Insurance FAQ Section offers useful information. Each question and answer is easy-to-read and explains the benefits of an USAA umbrella policy. The site explains why umbrella insurance is useful, how much coverage is needed, the different coverage limits, and whether or not umbrella insurance covers businesses.
Probably the most helpful information USAA has on its FAQ is examples of when an umbrella policy is needed.
For example: a member accidentally causes a five car collision and has an auto policy with bodily injury limits of $300,000 per person, $500,000 per accident, and $100,000 in property damage liability. If this member hurt 10 people with a total injury amount of $750,000 plus auto repairs, the policy might not cover everything.
The umbrella policy would help cover anything the auto policy did not.
