State Farm Insurance History

State Farm Insurance was founded by George Mecherle in 1922 as an automobile insurance company. It was started as a mutual company and so was owned by its policyholders.

The company originally provided auto insurance to farmers. The company expanded in the 1950s to other types of insurance, such as homeowners insurance and life insurance.

In 1964, State Farm became the largest insurance writer in the world.

In the 1990s State Farm Catastrophe Services was founded.

In 1999 State Farm Bank (SFB) opened. It is run by State Farm Financial Services. SFB offers many banking services such as checking, savings, and mortgages, but does not have branches Instead, it offers these services over the phone or via internet, as well as through agents in five states.

State Farm’s main business is State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company.

I have had been a member of the State Farm Ins. Group for 25 to 30 years. Up until now, I have been very well pleased with State Farm Ins.
Now I have a problem with the Deductible amount on all my insurance policies. Ever since
I started with State Farm, I have always had $500.00 deductible ,up until now(I found out)
I received a request letter a year or so ago to raise my deductible amount up to $1000.00.
I rejected the request.Last month I had a fireside chat with my Insurance agent and this subject was brought up and I was informed by my agent that I always have had $1000.00 deductible on my home and all 3 vehicles I have State Farm Insurance on. This was a very big surprise to me and I questioned his comment. He then checked his computer and restated that I have always had $1000.00 deductible on everything. DUH!!.
I came home and checked the 3-4 prior claimes that I had for my insurance clames and all 3 were listed for $500.00 deductible. For now I am going to speak to my agent again and see if he can find the mistake where and how the deductible amount was changed and see if my signature is on the change update. Up until nowe,State Farm Ins. Co. has been a very helpful and cooperative company. I hope that we can work this problem out.
I’ll be back.

First thing first – I know this message will be deleted. Just like the tape machine on mission impossible. But; If let a customer go this far – I am VERY IMPRESS!. Second thing is I LOVE MY STATE AGENT Marybeth Morgan. All I want to know from Corporate and I know you will pass it down to the agent, Is why Are the deals that Allstate has is not offer to a long term customer. I know I will from my agent – because I have learned corporate just care about the money – not a customer. So please DO NOT WASTE MY AGENT TIME. I KNOW YOU JUST LOVE THE MONEY – GOD BLESS YOU.

On 4-19-2014 at 4:05 pm a State Farm agent who was high on drugs couldn’t understand. English was totally disoriented and hung up in the middle of the call. Called back for a supervisor . Had no idea who accessed my account nothing in place to monitor or catch incompetent worker. Called Kathy in corporate who told me do what I got to do. Couldn’t care less Attitude. Company has nothing in place to enforce code of conduct for employees who answer customer calls. Very inept and totally useless supervisors and first
Line corporate intake personnel. Seems like they get paid to do nothing . Waiting.for call back from Cathy’s boss her of was usps. Why she answers a phone on a corporate
Level is beyond me. ” do what you gotta do” . Worst corpotrate contact in 45 yrs

I would like to talk with Mr. Ed Rust CEO.
A drunk hit my car 3 years ago who was insured with you. I have been fighting with state farm for 3 years to get repairs done which were a direct result of the accident! I am contacting a lawyer currently to get the issuses resolved. The vehicle was parked and forced into a curb between 45 -50mph. I have it on video tape. State farm refuses to pay for new rims which were bent due to the accident and I have had to replace several tires due to the situation with the rims.
Your incompetent claims people have blamed pot holes and bad tires for the issues. The car has not been driven due to the tire so I didn’t hit any damn pot holes. If the tires were bad because they are low profile the other two tires on the drivers side would have issues.

To Whom it may concern:
I applied for insurance for my car and rental insurance, I am located in North Carolina. I found out that I was denied insurance from State Farm. Why because I had a bankruptcy on my record from 2011. I had State Farm Insurance for many years but I left and I wanted to come back to State Farm. I am very upset to get this rejection from State Farm I feel that I am being discriminated because I had some financial problems in the past. Not only that my history on paying my bills before the bankruptcy and after the bankruptcy Is good, I paid everything on time.
If State Farm took the time to look into my history and see that I paid my Insurance on time but also paid early. I understand you have a third party doing the investigation on checking peoples back ground. Regardless they are working for you. I feel that State Farm company is only in for the money and do not care about the people they insure, regardless of all the advertising your company does.
I will never apply for insurance from State Farm again. Not only will I never apply but I will make sure whomever I come in contact with I will make sure to tell them how I was treated and what the company really stands for and it’s not about the people but how much they can line their pockets.
