Underwriting

State Farm® was founded on the idea that by underwriting differently we could do it better than anyone else. It was a bold and innovative concept in 1922, which continues to drive our business today. State Farm insures more cars and homes than any other company in the United States, with some of the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the industry. State Farm is also the largest life insurer in the United States, in individual life policies in force. We do it by making sure our underwriters have the skills and knowledge they need.
