The Pocket Agent offers unique mobile insurance and banking features at your fingertips - which can be invaluable following a storm.

In addition to registering for the Pocket Agent, South Carolinians are reminded that the beginning of hurricane season - which starts June 1st and runs through the end of November - is always a good time for homeowners to consult with their State Farm agent to review their insurance policies for adequate coverage for their home and property. Homeowners are encouraged to consult with their insurance agent to make sure they have a good understanding of what their policies cover (both home and auto), and the deductibles and exclusions their policies may include. It is always a good idea for homeowners to talk to their insurance agent about appropriate replacement cost coverage, flood insurance, and deductibles. It is important for homeowners to have the right amount of insurance coverage so they can recover and rebuild following a storm.
