State Farm Cuts Missouri Auto Rates 9.6% totaling $85.8 Million

Driving Trends Result in Insurance Rate Reduction for 1.1 Million Customers

Driving behaviors across the country continue to evolve during the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on current trends, State Farm is working to reduce auto insurance rates in Missouri by an average of 9.6%. This rate reduction will save 1.1 million State Farm customers a total of more than $85 million.

“Current State Farm driving data and claims experience show a considerable decline in miles driven and fewer accidents,” said Phillip Hawkins, Sr. Vice President, State Farm. “As a result, we’re looking for ways to continue supporting our customers while we monitor and adjust to trends.”

This applies to current customers at policy renewal, as well as new and returning customers. 

As part of a move to reduce auto rates nationally, State Farm has also recently filed rate reductions in Illinois and Kansas. State Farm reduced Kansas auto rates 9.3% totaling $32.9 million for 515,000 customers and in Illinois, State Farm reduced rates by 13.7% totaling $320 million for 2.8 million customers.

In addition to the auto rate reduction, the discount for participating in Drive Safe & Save™ is increasing to 10%, and empowers drivers to save more on their auto premiums through driving behaviors.
