Overall Rating: 9.3 / 10 (Excellent)

You can't really choose a more stable firm for homeowners insurance than State Farm. The organization has been in operation for almost 100 years and has an unparalleled reputation for financial stability and customer service. State Farm, however, has endured a few hits to its reputation recently as the company is currently refunding more than $13 million to customers in California due to overcharging. It is not clear how this will affect the company's credibility in the long term.

Financial Strength

Financial Strength - 10 / 10

State Farm is at the top of the heap when it comes to financial strength. The company boasts very high marks from A.M. Best and Standard & Poor's. What's more, in terms of marketshare and premiums written, State Farm is the largest insurer in the nation. So in exchange for higher premiums, you will be getting the most solid financial backing possible in terms of their ability to pay claims far into the future.

Customer Experience

Customer Experience - 9 / 10

State Farm's BBB grade was markedly decreased recently due to a judgment that they had overcharged customers in California approximately $13.3 million. The company has been ordered to refund this money with interest and is currently complying. State Farm, however, has a good Trustpilot score and less NAIC complaints than the national average.

State Farm's homeowner's policies are riddled with exclusions, including damage caused by corrosion. Many homes built prior to 1972 contain galvanized pipes, which eventually corrode and cause damage. When this happens, you will be on your own if your homeowners policy is with State Farm!

State Farm insurance is not as good as the commercials and agents suggest. Even if you pay your insurance every month on time, you can have a different claims two to three years apart and they will find a way to drop you. I wish their was half a star(1/2 star rating). State Farm really stinks!!!!

I have had only State Farm insurance for both my cars and homes for 40 years. I have had a bad two years and my shed fell under the heavy weight of snow and this was my third claim between 1995 and 2015 and they made me increase my deductible to $1000 in order not to loose my insurance. Then I had a power surge 8 months later. I spent over $1500 to have the meter box on my pole replaced and when the electric came back on most of my appliances and my furnace were not working. I called State Farm in case I needed to replace my 4 year old furnace. I ended up loosing all the appliances but the furnace was fixable so I did not submit anything so I didn't loose my insurance. Now 10... Read More
