What does it cost?

As outlined in Frequently Asked Questions, the amount of capital needed can vary greatly by market. Imagine all the variables between establishing your business in a major city versus a small community or between moving into existing office space or establishing a brand new office.

As an independent contractor agent, you are responsible for all business expenses but State Farm provides significant support to help with those expenses:

  • Once you've been selected, you begin a paid internship with State Farm® employee benefits.
  • If appointed as a Term Independent Contractor Agent, you receive a generous signing bonus; then an additional bonus at the beginning of your second year as an agent.
  • Relocation benefits may also apply.

During the Selection Process, your State Farm recruiting contact will help guide you on specific cost considerations for the market area or areas you are interested in. Your current financial situation will be an important part of those discussions.
