About Us

In it together

We do business more like a community than a company. Our different ideas, backgrounds, and approaches all come together to influence how we work with one another and help customers.

Our employees are challenged, guided, and empowered. As a community, we help one another grow professionally and personally. It’s part of who we are and have been since 1922.

Being a good neighbor

Helping others isn’t just our day job, it’s how we spend time out of the office too. We’re known for how we give back to our communities. Volunteering in schools and around the neighborhood is just another trait that makes working at State Farm® meaningful.

Visit the Good Neighbor Stories to see how we’re doing more in our communities as a way to celebrate our 100th anniversary.


At the end of the
day, one or two
calls pop up in my
mind. I’m so glad I
was able to help
somebody … I end up
feeling fulfilled.

Humble beginnings

In a small farm town in Central Illinois, insurance salesman G.J. Mecherle didn’t think insurance was priced fairly for farmers. His boss didn’t agree with him, so G.J. left and started his own insurance company. In 1922, G.J. founded State Farm on the principle of fairness. Long story, short: It took off.

State Farm has held its own since then as the number one insurer of auto and home in the nation.
