Home Insurance Products Offered
State Fund Insurance Shopper's website is not an online portal that funnels you directly to the actual insurance company to get a quote. The company provides a form for customers to fill out detailing their property and contents as much as possible. Agents then do the legwork of obtaining quotes using their existing relationships with insurance carriers. In order to get the process rolling, State Fund will need to know the following:
- Customer Personal Contact Information
- Year of Construction
- Square Footage
- Claims in Last 3 Years
- Amount insurance and liability needed
- Desired Deductible
- Structure Information, rooms, systems, alarms, etc.
- Additional Features
State Fund has forged long standing partnerships with multiple insurance carriers. Some of them, like Travelers, Chubb, and Safeco, are solid, multinational corporations with strong financial ratings.

|Vehicle Damage||Sudden or accidental burning or tearing apart|
|Falling Objects||Damage from electric current|

HO5 covers your contents and dwelling for any occurrence unless it's otherwise excluded in the policy.
Home Insurance with State Fund
Aside from saying it's "quick and easy," State Fund doesn't claim to deliver quotes in seconds or coverage in minutes like a lot of modern web portals. This is because the company is very much people driven and depends on personal contact with the customer. Their quotes are not automatically generated. Agents get as much info from prospective customers as possible, and then personally find the best suited insurance for them. If this approach which stresses comprehensive customer service is appealing to you State Fund would be a great agency to work with.
