Our History

State Farm began selling life insurance more than 80 years ago. While starting a life insurance company at the beginning of the Great Depression was a challenge, our commitment to meeting customers' needs helped us survive and grow. By the end of that first year, State Farm agents had sold 931 policies. We've grown quite a bit since then. During 2009, our agents submitted more than 900,000 ordinary life insurance and annuity applications, totaling more than $112 billion in coverage.
