Dear Fellow Members,
Every day, we hear from members seeking financial stability. Like retired Master Sgt. Chris Culbert, a 22-year Army veteran and three-time Bronze Star recipient who contacted us after returning home from deployment. Saddled with credit card debt, a hefty mortgage and car payments, this father of four wrote that his finances were "in shambles."
USAA's mission inspires us to help heroes like Sgt. Culbert, and all our members, take financial control of their lives. That's what we did in 2015.
We launched the new Financial Readiness Score, and I encourage you to use the tool to prepare for the financial ups and downs life brings. We also introduced convenient new mortgage tools that help you get prequalified on mobile devices in as little as five minutes. And more than 1 million of you have registered for fingerprint authentication to securely log on to the USAA Mobile App.
