Bottom Line: Is State Farm a Good Insurance Company?
Yes, State Farm is a good insurance company. WalletHub’s editors give State Farm a rating of 3.4/5 due to its typically quick claims inspection and payout process, generous discounts, and personalized customer service.
State Farm is best known for its auto insurance, and though other auto insurers have more extensive coverage options, State Farm’s menu more than adequately covers the nuts and bolts of a policy. However, State Farm does have a reputation for sometimes trying to avoid claims payouts and pressuring customers to use repair shops preferred by the company, which has brought its ratings down a bit.
