Turns out USAA does have a (single!) MA office, but it's down in Braintree, and two miles from the T. USAA tells me that most dealers should be able to take care of everything, and otherwise I can still somehow get my ass down to their office and take care of it myself. Probably worth spending the $50 and saving myself an afternoon of subway rides and looong hikes...
Thanks everybody for the info. Good to know the dealers have a system, which in retrospect isn't too surprising... but still new and mysterious to me.
