In 1928, two men shared a dream of providing a quality insurance product at a reasonable price. In the decades that followed we’ve grown and adapted to meet the changing needs of Americans. But one constant has remained: We have an unwavering commitment to uphold our founding ideals to provide industry-leading products and first-rate services to the customers we’re privileged to serve.
Different Eras, Same Exceptional Service
Farmers not only prides itself on helping you plan wisely for the unexpected, but also on helping restore order when it occurs, so you can keep moving along the road of your life’s plans.
In 1959 a Farmers customer wrote us a letter of surprised gratitude when his car battery was replaced just an hour after it was stolen. A letter from a couple in 2002 wrote that their Farmers agent and Claims Adjuster “were exceptional in their handling of our grief, what we needed to do, and helpful in many other ways.” That same year, when Hurricane Rita struck Beaumont, Texas, Farmers sent 300 agents to assess damages while policy holders were evacuated. Farmers also donated $100,000 for the city’s emergency operations center and two megawatt generators that restored power to Beaumont. Whatever year or decade a disaster occurs, you can count on us to be there for you.
Today, the companies comprising the Farmers Insurance Group of Companies make up one of the country's largest insurers of vehicles, homes and small businesses and provide a wide range of other insurance and financial services products.Farmers is proud to serve more than 10 million households with more than 19 million individual policies across all 50 states through the efforts of over 48,000 exclusive and independent agents and nearly 21,000 employees.
The Farmers Exchanges are three reciprocal insurers (Farmers Insurance Exchange, Fire Insurance Exchange and Truck Insurance Exchange) owned by their policyholders, and together with their subsidiaries and affiliates comprise the Farmers Insurance Group of Companies. Farmers Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries, in their capacity as attorneys-in-fact, provide administrative and management services to the Farmers Exchanges.
A History of Hard Work
For nearly 90 years, Farmers has been committed to serving the communities where our customers, agents and employees live, work and play. We work tirelessly to rebuild lives and lifestyles after disasters, improve and support education in our communities, and have dedicated ourselves to a culture of active communal engagement and volunteerism throughout the country.
Farmers Dedication to Community:
Suits for Soldiers
Farmers® was founded by two WWI Veterans – John C. Tyler and Thomas Leavey. Since our humble beginnings, Farmers has been rooted in giving back to others. This year, we invite you to join us in the 2016 Suits for Soldiers campaign to support our transitioning veterans by donating a gently used and dry cleaned suit and/or professional attire for a man or a woman. Seeing our service members return to the workforce aided by our efforts will help to improve their confidence and support to those who have sacrificed for our freedom.
Over 1 million military personnel will be making the transition from the military in the next couple of years, and we want to assist them as they transition into civilian life by providing them with proper business attire for interviews. The goal for 2016 is to collect 50,000 gently used, dry cleaned men’s and women's suits for transitioning veterans.
October 18 through November 30, 2016
Farmers Insurance is ranked in the Top 150 Military Friendly Employers in the US by Victory Media and G.I. Jobs. We support our veterans with corporate job opportunities, agency ownership opportunities, and donations to various non-profits across the nation including Team Rubicon, USOs, and others.
