ÂThrough this strategic marketing partnership, USBA members will have access to an online consumer-direct lender dedicated to simplifying the mortgage lending process,Â explains USBA President/CEO, Rear Admiral Larry G.

Vogt agrees, pointing out that one of USBAÂs most popular products Â USBAÂs Two for OneÂ® Family Life Insurance Plan which offers equal protection for both spouses for one low monthly premium -- can be viewed as an affordable option for mortgage protection insurance.
