To cancel State Farm insurance, the policyholder must call customer service at 1 (800) 782-8332, send a formal notice in writing, or cancel in person at a State Farm office. You cannot cancel a State Farm insurance policy online.
The cancellation can be arranged for a future date or set to take effect immediately. You will need your policy number, name, address, phone number, and plate forfeiture if you sold your car.
How to Cancel State Farm Insurance Policies
Cancel by phone by calling 800-STATEFARM.
- Cancel in person by taking your policy number, name, address, phone number, and plate forfeiture if you sold your car to your local State Farm agent.
Cancel by mail by writing a letter that includes your policy number, name, address, phone number, and plate forfeiture (if you sold your car), plus the date and time you want your policy to end. Sign, date, and mail your letter to: Corporate Headquarters of State Farm Insurance / One State Farm Plaza / Bloomington, IL 61710.
If you would like to switch agents instead of canceling your State Farm policy, you can email [email protected] or call 800-782-8332.
If you’ve already paid your premium for the policy period in full, State Farm will refund the unused portion. State Farm does not impose a cancellation fee or penalty for early termination.
It’s important to remember that you don’t need to cancel your policy just because you’re going through some life changes. For example, you should have State Farm update your mailing address or vehicle information if you’re moving or buying a new car.
If you’re canceling your current policy in order to switch to another company, be sure to activate your new policy before canceling the old one. This prevents a lapse in coverage, which would lead to higher premiums in the future.
