About Us

In it together.

We do business more like a community than a company. Our different ideas, backgrounds, and approaches all come together to influence how we work with one another and help customers.

We're driven to learn, adapt, and grow so we can help more people in more ways - forever.

Michael Tipsord, Chairman, President, and CEO

We exist to help people manage the risks of everyday life, recover from the unexpected, and realize their dreams.

The Neighborhood of Good®

Feeling great about where you work goes beyond the job itself – State Farm® employees care about what happens outside of our buildings. So, we do something about it. We team up with others to help improve our communities. It’s been part of who we are for nearly a century.

Check out the Neighborhood of Good to see what we mean.

At the end of the day, one or two calls pop up in my mind. I’m so glad I was able to help somebody… I end up feeling fulfilled.

Humble beginnings.

In a small farm town in Central Illinois, insurance salesman G.J. Mecherle didn’t think insurance was priced fairly for farmers. His boss didn’t agree with him, so G.J. left and started his own insurance company. In 1922, G.J. founded State Farm on the principle of fairness. Long story, short: It took off.

State Farm has held its own since then as the number one insurer of auto, home, and life in the nation.
