When you deal with a Farmers agent, you get so much more than you do with an Internet or 1-800 insurance company.

Farmers agents undergo a rigorous training program before they are able to sell their first policy. Full-time agents are trained for more than two years on all aspects of the insurance industry. Our agents put their professional expertise to work for their customers, helping to make sure you receive the coverages that are suited to your needs at the best possible price.

Behind every Farmers agent is the Farmers Insurance Group of Companies®, the nation's third-largest Personal Lines Property & Casualty insurance group.

Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA and doing business in 41 states, the insurers comprising the Farmers Insurance Group of Companies provide Homeowners, Auto, Business, Life insurance and financial services to more than 10 million households through 17,000 exclusive and independent agents and district managers.

And, best of all, you know that when trouble strikes, Farmers HelpPoint claims service and your Farmers agent are there to help get you back where you belong.

Experience, professionalism, service – they all add up to the Farmers personal agent advantage.
