The benefits of having an insurance agent

An insurance agent can help explain the different types of insurance, identify options that may align with your individual needs and more.

Your insurance needs are just as unique as you are, so cookie cutter coverage may not always work. That’s why State Farm® agents take the time to get to know you, so they can better understand your needs and help you identify options to consider. But that’s just one of the many benefits of having a State Farm agent. Check out other ways they can help.

What do insurance agents do?

  • Help explain the ins and outs of insurance.
  • Help you understand your coverage options.
  • Help identify discounts you may qualify for and other ways to save you money on insurance.
  • Help you navigate the claims process.

A State Farm agent can help you understand which insurance options may work for you. And with more than 19,000 agents throughout the U.S., chances are you’ll be able to find an agent near you.
