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.

Being a good neighbor.

Helping others isn’t just our day job, it’s how we spend time out of the office too. We’re known for how we give back to our communities. Volunteering in schools and around the neighborhood is just another trait that makes working at State Farm® meaningful.

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.
