    It's like the 90's here at my company with big profits and bonuses for even the peons like me.

    Getting a big screen, paying off a student loan, and getting the old jeep running...

    I work for a major insurance company that caters to the US military...

    We aren't traded publicly so we give dividends back to the members and bonuses to ALL the employess; not just the executives...

    So that's why insurance keeps going up, despite my perfect driving record and zero claim history.

    Enjoy your tv, Vart.

    The insurance industry is the biggest legal scam ever invented. They rake in billions, but pay out very little. I am in the middle of a lawsuit against my insurance company, because of Hurricane Ike that paid us a visit back in 08.

    mr. Vart- congratulations! Remember what Joe said: "don't get cocky!" Fixing up the jeep is definitely a good way to spend that money. That and buy more reloading supplies.

    Yep. You got a dividend check in December based on your policy amount, years insured, and claims history.

    If you didn't specify if you wanted a check or direct deposit, it goes into your Subscriber's Account until you withdraw it.

    I had $120 in mine after 2 years without realizing it.

    Call USAA and check: 1-800-531-8722
