Have you considered the Farm Bureau Insurance Company when searching for an insurance company that fits your needs?
I have to admit that I haven't yet been a Farm Bureau customer myself, but having researched the company a bit, I've kind of fallen in love with the concept behind the way the organization is structured.
Farm Bureau Ins. was started to specifically care for the insurance needs of farmers, hence the name. (You probably could have guessed that one yourself!) :)
From what I can tell, Farm Bureau Insurance has branches (for lack of a
better term) in all 50 states, but they seem to each be independent in
some ways from a parent company.
Although I couldn't locate a Farm Bureau Insurance headquarters or head office, it appears they all fall under the parent organization of the American Farm Bureau Federation.
Don't quote me on that! What little information I could locate is somewhat conflicting and confusing. :)
Each state's Farm Bureau insurance branch looks to be linked to that specific state's Farm Bureau/Agricultural organization. I find the Farm Bureau Ins. organization a little unique compared to the other insurance companies I have studied and reviewed because of this.
Should you use the Farm Bureau Insurance Company in your state? Good question! Before you go much further you need be aware of some of the basics. First and foremost, what is it you are looking for?
Of course, I will first mention Farm Bureau auto insurance.
Farm Bureau Ins appears to be one of the most popular insurance companies in each state, particularly states that have a large agricultural region.
I believe that is due, in part, to the sense of community that is developed through the whole Farm Bureau membership organization that covers an area much larger than insurance. Most of us do tend to feel a sense of loyalty when we are part of a group or organization that unifies us. This communal feeling is a big plus.
The second type of coverage Farm Bureau Insurance offers is health insurance.
Health insurance is very important to most people, but in these tough economic time not everyone can afford the premiums that seem to be getting higher by the minute.
That is why it's a good thing to have a pretty clear idea of what you're looking for and what you're willing to do without.
There are many different factors to consider when it comes to health insurance. You have medical, dental, eye care and even mental health, so there's a lot to consider.
Farm Bureau also offers home and property insurance.
With your house insurance there are different factors that will be taken into consideration such as your location. Different locations are more prone to wild fires, hurricanes, flooding, etc. Farm Bureau Ins. can help you find the best home insurance that suits your lifestyle and location.
If you have a large property, farm, or agricultural concern, this is the type of specialty that Farm Bureau is designed to cater to. You'll want your barns, equipment, and even crops and animals covered if possible.
Life insurance is the fourth type of Farm Bureau insurance to consider.
Life insurance is something that many of us don't like to think about. Unlike car insurance, life insurance is not required by law, so it's an easy expense to do without.
It is, however, important to think about the other people in your life who would be affected financially if you were to die unexpectedly without any form of life insurance. If you are the sole income provider for your family, how would your family cope without your income. This is something that you do need to think about as much as you'd like to avoid it.
Finally, Farm Bureau Insurance Company offers Annuity Investments.
Annuities are generally linked to your life insurance policy, but they are designed to provide some better financial opportunities for your retirement without the constant concerns about the viability of your social security.
When you take advantage of more than one service or insurance type with a particular company, you almost always can negotiate a better deal for yourself. Do keep that in mind while considering your various insurance needs whether with Farm Bureau or another auto insurance company.
Are you already a Farm Bureau Insurance Company customer? Do you have any experience in dealing with Farm Bureau Ins. customer service? Tell us about your experience!
Most people hate spending money on auto insurance. But if you have to spend the money, you want to be sure you are getting the best deal possible.
You expect good customer service, prompt attention to claims, and help when you need it. Are you getting this from your automobile insurance provider?
Praise or punish your insurance company here. Your input will be a help to future insurance consumers who want honest opinions rather than the company line. Go ahead, rant or rave!
