State Farm® Gives Customers Faster Claim Payouts with Digital Pay Solution Enabled by Fiserv
Bloomington, IL, May 11, 2021 — State Farm, the largest insurer of cars and homes in the nation, is accelerating the claims payout process for auto and fire customers with technology from Fiserv, Inc., a leading global provider of payments and financial services technology solutions.
With Digital Pay, State Farm customers will now have greater flexibility in how they receive approved and reviewed auto and fire claims payments. This technology will give State Farm the ability to digitally disperse qualifying claims payments. In turn, our customers will have the ability to choose a payment method that best suits their needs. State Farm began an incremental deployment of payout technology in February to test and tune the payment option.
Leveraging Fiserv technology, State Farm will be able to distribute reviewed and approved claim payments into customer accounts quickly and securely.
Some of the options and benefits of Digital Pay include:
- Increased speed of payment delivery
- Customer choice of payment delivery options
- Streamlined enrollment processes
- Simplified customer communications
“We believe this new capability will support our goal to personalize the customer experience and help more people in more ways,” said Schuyler Schupbach, Vice President of Property & Casualty Claims at State Farm. “As an industry leader, we are committed to ongoing transformation to meet the changing needs and expectations of customers including modernizing our technology. We are excited to introduce digital payment options through Fiserv that will simplify the claims payout process for our customers and provide added convenience.”
At Fiserv, digital payouts are part of the Carat omnichannel commerce ecosystem that securely delivers unlimited payment opportunities across the most popular channels and devices.

“Carat is helping organizations like State Farm move money and information with the speed, flexibility, and convenience that today’s consumer demands, said Nandan Sheth, head of Carat and Digital Commerce at Fiserv. As businesses look to create positive new consumer experiences, the ability to pay out funds with the same speed and simplicity with which they are paid in can be a significant differentiator.”
