About Us

Our Mission
The Uniformed Services Benefit Association is a not-for-profit association that provides a family of affordable insurance and financial products and services to military personnel, Federal employees, National Guard and Reserve members, Veterans and their families with the highest ethical standards of conduct and service.

Our Leadership
USBA’s President and CEO is Colonel Robin A. Snyder, USAF (Ret.). Snyder comes to this position after more than five years as USBA’s Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. Prior to this, Snyder served over 27 years in the United States Air Force as a senior level officer with wide-ranging management, operational and strategic responsibilities.

Our Board of Directors
USBA is governed by a Board of Directors elected annually by the membership. The Board is comprised of active and retired military members and Federal employees. Board members typically serve a three year term. To see a list of current Board members, click here.

Our Employees
USBA employees include retired military members with backgrounds in many of the armed services as well as veterans and qualified non-military people. A large number of employees enroll in continuing education courses relating to life insurance each year, and USBA has twice received awards for educational excellence from LOMA (Life Office Management Association) for high performance on course examinations.

Our History
USBA was founded in 1959 to meet the needs of Active Duty military personnel, who at that time had difficulty finding adequate life insurance coverage that would cover combat-related deaths. USBA was one of the first companies to do away with the so-called "war clause" in all of its coverage.

President’s Letter
Robin Snyder USBA CEOThanks for visiting our Website!

Since the founding of USBA in 1959, we’ve worked to serve the life insurance needs of America’s service men and women and their families.

Through the years our Association has expanded to offer those same exceptional insurance products and services to our active reserves, National Guard, Federal Employees, honorably discharged veterans, and others.

Through eleven US presidents, three wars, and the cyclical ups and downs of the US economy, USBA has quietly and steadily grown. We’ve been successful by building a reputation for great products, offering solid value for the money, and delivering it all with a commitment to first class customer service.

Look us over. We’re proud of who we are … and what we’ve become. If you’re eligible, consider purchasing one or more of our products or services. Give us a try.

You won’t be disappointed.

Robin A. Snyder
Colonel, USAF (Ret.)
