Directly Deposit Your Tax Refund

You can deposit your tax refund into one or more of your Associate Mutual Funds accounts directly. When you file your tax return for the year, follow the instructions below to complete IRS Form 8888 and deposit all or just a portion of your refund directly into the State Farm® account(s) of your choice.


Follow the example below to complete Part I of IRS Form 8888.

  • Enter your name and Social Security number as shown on your tax return (Line 1).
  • Enter the dollar amount you want deposited from your refund (Line 1a).
  • Enter the routing number for State Farm Investment Management Corp. (SFIMC) — 021409169, and select Checking (Lines 1b and 1c).
  • Enter your Associate State Farm Mutual Fund account information in the exact format described below (Line 1d).
    • Enter SFIMC's identification number: 86.
    • Enter your fund number. Allow for five spaces, and use zeroes in front of your fund number to fill any gaps. For example, if the fund number is four digits, there will be one zero in front of the fund number.
    • Enter your account number. Allow for 10 spaces, and use zeroes in front of your account number to fill any gaps. For example, if the account number is eight digits, there will be two zeroes in front of the account number.
  • If you choose to deposit your refund into multiple accounts, repeat the steps above for each additional account (up to three).
