Thank You, USAA!

December 16th, 2014 at 11:38 am

Got our notice of our dividend from USAA insurance. $58.65, and I haven't decided yet where it's going.

We have our property and auto with USAA, and I've been a member since I was 16 and started driving. My father was in the Navy (which is how I was eligible for USAA), and I really think having USAA insurance is a privilege.

Other financial thoughts for the day;
- I bought D and F each a chocolate orange; they get one every year.

- Today's chiropractor visit was also paid for; I have one last appt. on Friday for which I will have to pay the co-pay, but overall this back pain (nearly gone) hasn't been a financial setback.

- I set our deductible for a lower amount. The premiums are higher, but it means the business absorbs more of our healthcare costs, which makes sense. I am thinking of setting up an HRA. Does anyone have experience with these?

- I sent out the end-of-the-year bills to my clients. They probably won't pay in December which is fine. I'd prefer to get the money in early January, which is why I sent them out now. My business is on a cash basis.

- I got a request from the County to submit a letter of interest on a transfer station/volunteer fire station project. Given my experience, I have a good shot at this. The response is due January 5th, so I am feeling very forward-thinking to have F in a three day camp just before new years!

- I can't wait for F to be out of school on Friday! Holiday break! We're meeting my friend and her daughter (one of F's best friends) for lunch since it's a half day. Since D is getting a holiday office lunch I feel like this is my office holiday lunch!

    We got our USAA dividend last week. Nearly $70! Which helped me meet the mortgage goal for the year. Can you believe my kids have to go to school through Tuesday?! They do get out early that day.

    That's awesome - I love USAA!

    Through Tuesday? Weird! I guess it keeps their minds off all the Christmas stuff...

    The weird thing at F's school: school lets out early on Friday, but so many families just skip that and leave town on Thursday after school that they had to change the winter concert to Wednesday night instead of Thursday night!

    I think schools here finish up next week.

    I haven't been able to find Terry's Chocolate Orange around here - Walgreen's used to have them, but this year they had a different kind - not quite as good.

    I found the Terry's chocolate oranges at Target this year - very happy! They are the best!

    I'm so glad you posted this! I always forget what time of year that money comes from USAA. Just checked my account and we have a $97.63 credit on our car insurance. I'll take that money and put it as extra to the credit card debts. I always tell DH that the best thing to come from our marriage is being eligible for USAA Wink (Kidding, of course!) He was a Marine.
