State Farm Auto Insurance
State Farm is the largest auto insurance company in the country, according to the III. It owns the most market share and has written the most premiums out of all other companies. J.D. Power ranks State Farm as the overall best large insurer in the nation with a customer satisfaction score of 885 out of 1,000.
Auto Insurance Coverages
With State Farm, you can get all of the standard auto insurance coverages. These coverage options include the following:
- Liability insurance. Covers damages and injuries you cause in an accident. This is what most states will require, at minimum.
- Collision insurance. This covers damages to your car in an accident, regardless of fault. It’s also part of full coverage.
- Comprehensive insurance. Protects you from damages that “acts of God,” such as weather or crime, cause. This is part of full coverage car insurance.
- Uninsured and underinsured motorist (UM and UIM) coverage. Pays for costs that a driver with no or too little insurance causes in an accident.
- Car rental and travel expenses coverage. Pays for a rental car while your car goes through repairs. It also pays for any travel expenses, such as a hotel and food, if you get into an accident more than 50 miles from home.
- Personal injury protection (PIP). Covers you and your passengers’ injury costs no matter who caused the accident.
- Medical payments (MedPay) coverage. Like PIP, MedPay pays for any medical or funeral costs after an accident, regardless of fault.
- Rideshare driver coverage. This protects you if you drive for rideshare companies, such as Uber or Lyft, where your regular insurance wouldn’t cover you otherwise.
- Classic car coverage. This protects your classic or collector car if you need to take it out for a spin. It’ll pay for any necessary repairs up to your coverage limits.
On the other hand, State Farm doesn’t offer gap insurance. If you buy auto insurance from State Farm, you’ll have to look elsewhere for gap coverage.
State Farm provides emergency roadside assistance to its customers. They refer to this as their emergency road service coverage. This coverage can help you with the following:
- Fuel delivery
- One-hour locksmith service
- One-hour mechanical labor
You can use State Farm’s emergency roadside service whether you’re an existing policyholder or not. If you have emergency roadside service on your policy, your insurance ID card will read “Coverage H.” When you don’t have a policy with State Farm, you’ll need to pay for the services out of pocket.
How to Contact State Farm’s Roadside Assistance
If you’re stranded and need State Farm’s emergency roadside service, you have a few options. Here’s how you can easily contact State Farm when you need help:
- Call the State Farm roadside assistance phone number, (877) 627-5757
- Start an emergency roadside service request on the State Farm website
- Request roadside assistance via the State Farm mobile app
Driving in Mexico or Canada
State Farm doesn’t sell auto insurance in Canada or Mexico. But for many, their State Farm policy will cover them in the Great White North. This isn’t the same as having a Canadian insurance policy. If you get into an accident, your insurance may not protect you completely.
The situation is even worse in Mexico. If you plan on driving very far south of the border, you’ll want to buy Mexican car insurance. A liability policy if nothing else. If in doubt, talk to your agent about coverage options before driving across the border.
Umbrella insurance isn’t something most people think about adding to their auto policy. But with today’s sky-high medical and new car costs, your regular auto insurance limits might not be enough. If not, you’re paying whatever’s left out of pocket. Luckily, a State Farm umbrella policy is inexpensive for the extra peace of mind.
Auto Insurance Term Length
State Farm offers six- or 12-month auto insurance policies. Many people love the flexibility of a six-month policy. Others prefer locking in a rate for 12 months, knowing it’ll go up after six. State Farm does not sell temporary car insurance policies.
High-Risk Auto Insurance
State Farm offers high-risk auto insurance coverage to drivers. These are people with violations like DUIs and speeding tickets. Poor credit or a lapse in coverage can also put you in the high-risk category. If this describes you, State Farm won’t turn you away. They can even assist in filing an SR-22. But it won’t be cheap. High-risk insurance never is.
Insurance for Rebuilt Title Cars
Does State Farm insure cars with rebuilt titles? Absolutely! State Farm is one of many insurance companies that cover rebuilt titles. These are former salvage vehicles that were declared a total loss by an insurance company and given a salvage title. Salvage cars are undriveable and just about impossible to insure. But you can insure a car with a rebuilt title.
To get a rebuilt brand on your title and get the word “salvage” removed, the vehicle must first pass several safety tests and inspections before the state declares it as roadworthy. Once you get this certification, there’s a good chance State Farm will cover your rebuilt car. A rebuilt car isn’t as risky as it sounds. But it may be hard to get full coverage on a rebuilt title. You’ll at least be street-legal with liability.

State Farm Auto Rates
Everyone pays a different amount for insurance. This is because insurers consider a wide range of factors when they’re determining your rates. State Farm, like other carriers, considers several rate factors before setting your premium. Below are the most common:

- Your age
- Where you live

Note that these aren’t all of the factors that State Farm may consider. These are just some of the most well-known.

- The date and time of the car accident
- Which cars were part of the collision
- Where the accident occurred
- An account of what happened
- A thorough description of the extent of the damages

State Farm offers the standard coverages that you’d expect for a home insurance policy. Below are the types of homeowners insurance coverage that State Farm provides:
- Dwelling coverage. Protects the physical structure of your home and other buildings on your property.

You can also get homeowners insurance discounts with State Farm. Unlike with auto insurance, there aren’t nearly as many discounts available for homeowners. Still, they’re a great way to lower your rates and save money. State Farm offers the following home insurance discounts:
Bundling Your Insurance
State Farm allows you to bundle your home insurance with other types, like auto, to get a discount. You might also see State Farm call this the multi-line discount. All you need to do is buy your home, auto, or any other insurance types from State Farm.
Keep in mind that you can’t bundle pet or health insurance with home for a discount. Be sure to ask your State Farm agent about any other types of insurance you can or can’t bundle.
With State Farm, you could get a discount if you install security systems at your house. Types of security systems that State Farm lists are:

State Farm offers a discount on your rates if your roof is made of impact-resistant materials. This includes “class 4” or hail resistant shingles. Before installing a new roof, be sure to speak with your State Farm agent to see which materials will give you a discount on your homeowners rates.
If your roof is a total loss, State Farm will replace it at replacement cost. To take advantage of any discounts for your roof, you’ll need to fill out a form making you eligible for a reduction in your premiums.
Setting a Higher Deductible
Setting your home insurance deductible higher will lower your rates. This is a good way to pay less each month for homeowners insurance. But be aware that doing so puts you on the hook for a lot more money if you need to file a claim. Only set a high deductible if you’re able to pay the amount.
Home insurance endorsements allow you to add extra coverage to your policy. They help to fill in any coverage gaps. State Farm offers many endorsements or policy riders, including:
- Inflation guard. Increases your coverage limits to keep up with rising construction costs due to inflation.
- Scheduled personal property. Raises coverage limits for certain valuable objects, such as jewelry, art, collectibles, etc.
- Water backup. Covers water damage to your home from sewer or sump pump backups.
- Identity theft. Protects you from any costs relating to identity theft.
State Farm may offer other types of endorsements or extra coverage that aren’t listed here. Be sure to ask your agent about other types of endorsements that the company offers. You can also choose to buy an umbrella policy to further protect yourself from expensive liability claims.
Homeowners Rate Factors
State Farm, like other insures, determines your rates based on a number of factors. These factors are often in your control. However, they can also be out of your hands. Here are common home insurance rate factors:
- Replacement cost vs. actual cash value (ACV). This is how your insurer reimburses you for damages. Choosing replacement cost will mean higher rates, while picking the ACV will mean lower rates.
- Home value. A more valuable home with expensive features will likely result in higher rates. This is because it’ll be more costly to repair or replace.
- Where you live. Living in an area that’s at risk for crime or disastrous weather, such as hail or hurricanes, could mean higher rates.
- Credit score. Your credit history is a common rate factor. A low credit score likely means you’ll pay more for insurance each month.
- Type of policy. When you buy home insurance, you’ll have to choose a type of policy. Choosing one with more features will result in more expensive premiums.
Note: these may not be the only rate factors that State Farm considers, but they’re some of the most common.
