USCCA offers 3 levels of Membership. This article will explain and compare the costs and benefits between the Gold, Platinum and Elite Memberships

Each level has a different membership price and offers different benefits. There is a considerable discount available for a spouse membership and the cost is shown below.

If you want to know more about the USCCA, who they are and what they do, see my article: Concealed Carry Insurance Coverage and Legal Protection.

USCCA Membership Cost

Below is a breakdown of the USCCA Membership cost and discount for each level and what is included with your membership. USCCA Memberships costs are:

  • Gold Membership Cost is $29 monthly or $299 annually. (Annual discount of $49)
  • Platinum Membership Cost is $39 monthly or $399 annually. (Annual discount of $69)
  • Elite Membership Cost is $49 monthly or $499 annually. (Annual discount of $89)

USCCA Lifetime Membership

The USCCA does not offer a lifetime membership at this time. The cost of a USCCA Lifetime Membership would be extremely expensive and would just be cost prohibitive to offer such a membership.

Military and Veteran Discount

The USCCA is proud to offer a military and Veteran discount on all memberships. After you activate your membership through the Membership Page, simply send an email or open a chat with a friendly USCCA support specialist and they will apply your 10% Military Discount. Thank you for your service!

USCCA Spouse Membership Cost

Spouse Discount

USCCA Spouse discount for Marriage partner

There is a discount for spouse coverage. If you have a membership, you can add your spouse at a significant discount. The current pricing is below.

**Please note that a spouse would automatically be covered if a firearm (or other legally possessed weapon) is used in self defense while the spouse is “in or on the residence property” of the member. This applies to other relatives of the member and persons under 21 that are in the care of the member.

The USCCA offers a generous spouse discount for each membership level.

Cost of Spouse Membership:

  • Elite Level $24 per month ($249 per year)
  • Platinum Level $19 per month ($199 per year)
  • Gold Level $14 per month ($149 per year)

I recently joined at the Platinum Membership level, (membership fee is $39/month) and added my wife to the account for only $19 more per month. I think I got a great deal, and the information that was immediately available to me is priceless! If you have any questions at all about the membership, ask in the comment section and I will answer usually within 24 hours.

Gold vs Platinum vs Elite Memberships

See the entire comparison chart with all the benefits listed for each Membership level here.

All memberships are now protected up to $2,000,000 Self Defense Liability and Claims Expenses and Damages* as well as $250,000 Self Defense Liability for Defense Expenses*.

This is a significant increase if you are considering the Platinum or Gold levels. A ton of additional training has been added as well!

The USCCA membership fee includes all the following benefits regardless of the level you select:

**Update 10/15/20. USCCA has just increased the training and education benefits on all levels and added the new USCCA Protector Academy.

  1. Hi Dave; Congratulation on your braveness, to be carrying a Firearm for fifteen years. Do you ever have a reason to discharge your weapon, outside of practising on the firing range? The monthly and yearly fees for all three categories are reasonable. I believe that the price is excellent with all that is covered in each package.

    • DorcasW, Thank you for visiting my site and leaving a comment. Fortunately, I have not had to draw or use my firearm in 15 years outside of my regular practice sessions. Having a Membership with USCCA certainly gives me peace of mind as well as access to tons of great training material at a reasonable cost.

    • Marthagirl, Thank you for reading my article and leaving a comment. No, I have not needed to use my firearm other than at the firing range! Carrying it has become a habit, so it is just something I do every time I go out of the house. Having the USCCA insurance coverage gives me a peace of mind that I will not be alone should I need to use deadly force to protect myself or my family!

  7. This is a very good discussion that you have made here on the USCCA membership levels and also explaining how much we have to pay per month consequently. I have been looking for a good legal backing that I could use just whenever the need arises. I don’t understand the part of the training that you mentioned here in the post though. Can you shed more light on that?

    Reply
    • Payton, thanks for stopping by and reading my article on USCCA memberships. The training I mention is offered by USCCA when you purchase a membership at any level. The Elite level provides the most training. The training is offered in video format and covers topics such as Developing a Home Defense Plan, Situational Awareness (how to avoid a problem), Surviving a Car Jacking, How to Choose the Right Firearm, and too many more to list here.

      Since I joined, I try to watch a few videos a week and I keep learning more each time.

      Congrats on your GOLD USCCA Membership! Its a great way to get educated, keep up with your local gun laws, hone your skills with the weekly training drills, and be legally protected, plus much more as you can see in your personal dashboard! I recommend getting on the USCCA community chat and introduce yourself, there are lots of people there that love to answer questions are share experiences on every topic of gun ownership!

  12. Hi, I appreciated the information from your article. I also appreciate that there’s a military and veteran discount. While I’m not  veteran myself, most of my family members are active or retired veterans. I’ve also never fired a gun. I can put them together and take them a part, but I’ve never actually fired one. I hope to one day receive training, so this was definitely an interesting find to come across. Thank you for the article.

    • Eirian, Thanks for the comment! USCCA membership is for any one that wants to learn and become skilled in Concealed Carry and home Defense. There are 3 different levels of membership so anyone can afford to join. I am a Platinum Member myself.

      Feel free to ask me any questions you may have.

      That is an interesting dream! Thanks for commenting on my post. Yes, USCCA Membership is for US citizens that are responsible gun owners and desire to be well educated in concealed carry and home defense. Tell your mother it is good to have a firearms license!

  14. Thank you so much for the the article this is really giving full detail of what anybody needs to know concerning USCCA membership and the costs of each level! I really want to enjoy all the benefits of being a member of this organization. I believe it would be best for me to enjoy all rather than wait to take steps gradually.  To avoid wasting time I will likely join as an Elite Member. What Membership do you have?

    Reply
    • Danie, thanks for the comment and for visiting my article on the USCCA! That sounds like a good plan to join as an Elite Member. Even though the cost is higher, you will be able to access everything the USCCA has to offer right away. If you are serious about concealed carry and home defense and are able to afford it, you will not be disappointed! And remember, there is a 364 day guarantee, so you have plenty of time to decide if a USCCA Membership is something beneficial to you and your family.

      I am a Platinum Member as of now, but have been considering the upgrade to Elite soon!

  15. This looks like a great way for someone to learn about protecting their home and family. Looks like a lot of great training available with a USCCA Membership. The cost seems reasonable for what you get, especially with the 3 different levels available. It’s amazing to me that in the 21st century, people don’t have a lot of information about life-saving information. I hope that as many people as possible will see this offer so that those who need it will know who to turn to.

    • Thank you for reading my article and for leaving a comment. I am quite satisfied with all the training information information I am able to access with my Platinum membership and I’m looking to upgrade to the Elite membership level once I get through all the training! Even though I have been Carry Concealed for over 15 years I continue to learn new things each time I watch one of the training videos, Or read a back issue of Concealed Carry Magazine.

  16. Thank you for your post. It is a timely article for me. I just bought a gun and there are a lot of questions on owning a gun. Of course, I bought the gun and intend to self-defense. I agree with you that there’s a chance I will make a choice that land me in jail (or worse).

    I definitely need to prevent this from happening. I need to have training and programming into my mind so I can respond quickly, confidently, and legally. It is clear to me that the U.S. Concealed Carry Association is all about helping people make informed decisions and is a sure place for to be in. I am going to join it.

  17. Hi There Dave,

    First off, Great article I clicked the link to go do my own research on USCCA. This is a nice review on its membership costs and membership levels. This seems like a really great organization for people who carry weapons To get some great training and to keep updated on the current laws. The self-defense insurance coverage would certainly help with peace of mind!

  18. Thanks for sharing the membership cost information about the USCCA. I have heard about this once before and after reading the article I know that it is a platform that trains members on the use of firearms for their protection.  This post let’s me see that it’s not as costly as I thought if you really think about it. I think it would be very beneficial for anyone that owns a gun for self defense to become a member.

    I very much prefer to mail in a check please.

    • John, unfortunately, no. I have confirmed with Customer Support that you would need to be legally married to get the spouse discount. She will need to get her own USCCA Membership. You could refer her and then she would be eligible for a free survival kit and you could get a $50 gift card to use in the USCCA store.
