 Did You Know?
Everyone could use life

Everyone could likely use life insurance at some point, but did you know that one in two Americans will need prolonged medical and personal assistance at some point in their lives as well? That's a fifty percent chance! With those odds, plus the very high costs of long-term care, the best time to think about helping protect your loved ones and your future is now.

Could you afford long-term care expenses?

Home health aides average $18.50/hour1, and nursing home costs average $203/day2. How long could you pay for these expenses before spending all of your savings? 1 National Statistic: Genworth Cost of Care Survey, conducted by CareScout®, April 2009. 2 National Statistic: Based on rates for a private nursing home room. Genworth Cost of Care Survey, conducted by CareScout®, April 2009.

State Farm is there for life

State Farm Insurance® began selling life insurance more than 75 years ago in April 1929. Today, State Farm® has over 7 million life insurance and annuity policies in force.

Preventing Water Damage

Take a few extra moments every week to check potential trouble spots in and around your home. Early detection could mean the difference between a simple mop-up job and major construction repairs.
