State Farm® Cuts Auto Insurance Rates for Missouri Customers

3.9 percent rate decrease to affect approximately 1.1 million policyholders; rates reduced more than 9 percent in the last year

State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, the largest auto insurer in Missouri and in the nation, is cutting its rates in Missouri. As a result, its overall personal auto rate will drop by 3.9 percent. The total state-wide expected impact for State Farm Mutual by this rate decrease in Missouri will be approximately $32 million.

Combined with two previous rate decreases in 2018, State Farm has reduced auto rates in Missouri by more than 9 percent over the past year, creating a savings of $86 million for Missouri customers.

“We’re always evaluating how we can best serve our customers and are very pleased to be able to offer this rate decrease in Missouri,” said State Farm Senior Vice President Phillip Hawkins. “Lower than expected expenses and losses were important factors, among many, that supported our decision to make this rate change.”

Overall changes in premiums for individual motorists will vary depending on the specific details of an individual customer’s policy and chosen coverages. The effective date for new and renewal business is Feb. 11, 2019. Missouri customers with questions can contact their local State Farm agent to discuss their individual situation.

In addition to this rate reduction, State Farm agents are able to review with new and existing customers the many opportunities for additional discounts that may apply to an individual’s unique circumstances. A rate decrease, combined with discounts, offers exceptional long-term value to State Farm customers.
