State Farm Complaints Continued... (Page 3)188+ reviews added so far. Upset? Call State Farm corporate: 800-782-8332
We the St. Martin family in North St. Paul MN have filed a claim for our siding and roof to be replaced due to storm damage. Our agent and your so called (underwriters) say they want to match it. There is no way you can match any ones siding of roofing with the same pattern. Color? Maybe. Pattern no way. I am contacting the MN Secretary of State and the MN Attorney General office plus the B.B.B. to let them know our disappointment above how you always take the easy way out. No matter the out come of this situation I will spend all my extra time letting people know how you don't care about people only money. Thanks.
Was in a bad motor vehicle accident and I have bad injuries and have received yelling at me no understanding no help to ensure my vehicle is repaired correctly. I was yelled at by a manager of the property department for ~ 15 minutes in front of at least 5 therapists and my S.O.. Her name was Lisa Bishop from California. I was just concerned about my vehicle being properly restored due to the severity of the accident! They have also caused delays with the body shop a blame a severely injured insured client! It has been a brutal 5+ weeks. No one has asked to help me!!! No One! Just argued and insulted me! Disgusting and should all be fired! I do not recommend State Farm to anyone unless you want to be taken advantage of, humiliation, delays, and cost is worth more than insuring your vehicle is fixed correctly!!!
I was appalled by a recent encounter or call over the phone around 9:33 AM, (May 11, 2018) with the manager of State Farm Insurance (Odessa, West Texas location) named, MR. JEREMY RAMOS - CAINE, someone whom I wish to help me but instead the one who mocked me, lashed out on me, embarrassed me of my previous accident that it's severed as an accident life situation, and a false representative of State Farm company that hung up a phone on me or to a customer to avoid an amicable closure of my insurance policy. When you hear what transpired, I am sure you will agree that he needs to be demoted, stripped down his insurance license nor should be given a corporate managerial training and proper etiquette in customer service.
When I called Mr. Ramos over the phone today to my intent, he abruptly lashed out on me using his unforgiving words on me, put guilt on my face by using his rude and dominating voice of my previous accident. I soon observed that he had gone cold and very unprofessional on treating me as a customer.
I actually called Jeremy as an equivocator, for a lot of reason, when he re-instated my auto insurance of my insurance policy, the original amount was just $122.89, then I had an accident in March 26, 2018; all of a sudden re-adjustment was settled, billed on it and rate was accelerated. Mr. Ramos told me to not pay the month of April 2018 because the payment will re-adjust/will accrue the fee by May 12, 2018, for the amount of $164.05 for a one time payment. Then, after I told him of the very poor service of him and declining their insurance company service, he billed me again with another high rate quotation. It feels like there's always a hidden fees and loop holes in managing their statement over mine.
I was mortified, and I am embarrassed to say that I was so dumbfounded by Mr. Jeremy Ramos' rude behavior and very well disappointed of his actions. I find it hard to believe that you would knowingly employ such abusive, ill-mannered, unethical, foul-mouth , abrasive, and unprofessional manager like him.
I have no idea what has happened to my receipts of payment that I did pay with him online over the phone way back this year, but I expect to complete my transfer from a new insurance agent of State Farm company located in Bedford, Texas instead of Odessa location. I also would like an apology for how I was treated by Mr. Jeremy Ramos. Please let me know when I should be speaking to the manager of the State Farm Corporate office or the headquarter, so things can be set right in a civil manner. I look forward to hearing from you within the next week.
My coworker backed in to my 2006 Mercedes Benz on March 1,2018. I filed a claim with Farmers Insurance on March 5, 2018, it took the auto body shop two weeks to make an estimate on the repairs. The auto body representive state the repairs would be around $5,000.00 and it was about $400.00 from being considered a total lost. I was not please with this information, I informed him that I wanted my insurance to inspect the car to see if their estimate was close to Farmers. I did not tell him I was going with my Insurance, so the agent that was handling the case canceled the rental car, now I am stuck with a $500.00 bill from the car rental company.I don’t understand why I am being penalized for wanting a second opinion. I picked up my car 4/17/18, and I will have to take it back for a light bulb and issue with my left side passenger door lock that was not a part of the accident. Pleas help me resolve this issue. Thank you. Mary White
My truck was totalled on Feb. 2nd.Still haven't received my release of lein from state farm bank to finish my claim.This was supposed to be settled as of last week.I paid off my truck early and am tired of getting the run around.I had to move last year so I could have a better place to live and lost my original paperwork that showed my release of lein which the truck was paid off well over a year ago.To save the possibility of a lawsuit; I would hope you pay m my money. Tom Mallory of state farm in Whitehall, Mi was my agent. thank you. sincerely, Herman Andreas.

My auto claim is 6 weeks old. I have yet to get a decision on the estimate submitted by our local collision center.
I was told I would be kept updated by phone or e-mail. So far nothing. I have done a little research and found you guys
operate this way a lot. I am extremely dissappointed and considering changing insurance companies. My claim number is
04-2809-D94. If I do not hear anything by 03-21-201 I will contact the State Insurance Commission. Rating my experience is
easy. "0" so far.
I am so very disappointed in the way in which my family and I have had our claims handled by the claims department. We have been clients with State Farm since 2005 and to date, we are considering switching to another company. I am in the process of sending a certified letter to the corporate office in Bloomington, IL. So disappointed AND frustrated!

If I could give a lower rating than 1 I would. On January, 25th 2018 I experienced a plumbing failure. Chris Jessen and Nicole Dileo were assigned as my adjusters. The estimate Ms. Dlieo gave is CLEARLY UNFAIR and openly malicious towards me. Ms. Dileo has intentionally omitted $30,000 from my claim (it is neither on my estimate or in a denial letter). She has also made MANY mistakes and errors in my claim (i.e. "estimating" $.078/SQFT to replace high end carpet and padding. Offer $11,000 to replace a kitchen that homedepot quoted $10,000 JUST FOR CABINETS and MANY others).
There has been NO response to my loss of personal items and Ms. Dileo REFUSES to go over her "estimate" and explain how she arrived at her estimate.
I am about to file a complaint of UNFAIR PRACTICES with the insurance commissioner and writing this letter is my LAST STOP before a formal complaint is filed with the state of California. I have been living in a house that is a construction zone for 3 weeks and I have YET to have ANYONE FROM YOUR COMPANY demonstrate ANY concern or assistance in getting my home/life back. My PERSONAL PROPERTY LIST was provided verbally on Jan, 30th to Mr. Jessen and I provided an electronic version on Feb 4th....and have NOT RECEIVED ANY RESPONSE.

CLAIM # 75-2810-V76
I called roadside assistant around 9pm because my car broke down. When I originally called my ETA was 80min, got several calls that Elite tow services were on the way. After 2hours no tow truck ever came, so I called back roadside assistants to see where the truck was. I was told they would be 20 more min. Then another 40 min went by and I called back to be told 20 more minutes he was dropping another car off that was on the truck as we spoke. So another 30 min went by called back still dropping car off another 20 min this went on for hours. 3 different Supervisors called saying I should have never been told that many times 20 more minutes and filed a complaint against Elite Towing services. Then one of the supervisors told me she was getting another company and whoever was there first go with them. I waited another 30 min no one came. I called back again and was told another company was never called and 20 min Elite would be there still dropping off car. I waited almost 5 hours on the side of the road in the cold. I find this unprofessional and ridiculous that I pay all this money for services that are horrible. I have renters insurance and 3 vehicles on this plan. Hopefully I never need anything else because your company let me down. My issue is what if I had my daughter with me or it was my mother in law. This is unacceptable especially for how much I pay. Why do I have roadside assistants if no one comes in a timely fashion. I am very disappointed and I am probably going to start looking for a new company. Not to mention I have a job that I have to be to at 7am, didn't get home till after 2am by the time the truck came. In the end I was lied too also. The agent keep saying he had a car on truck then tells me the truck driver had a problem with payment for last customer and impounded that car. But if they knew this y not call another company??? I am so beyond disappointed with your company for the way they handle the situation and made my experience horrible. Almost 5 hours for roadside assistant is unacceptable and stressful. I had the worse experience ever with your company.
I was in an accident over 3 months ago I been trying to get my vehicle fix the person hit me from behind is also a state farm customer OK I went had my estimated state farm refuse to pay for my vehicle to get fix my vehicle been in the body shop for 2 week waiting for a adjuster to come out an inspect the car . state farm gave me 1500 it is not enough to fix my vehicle my frame is bend bad .today makes two weeks adjuster having came yet.
Car broke down next to highway. First day above zero temp in a month. It is COLD. This is Wisconsin, not Arizona. Called State Farm and was told tow truck in an hour. An HOUR 15 MINUTES later tow driver calls to say "he can't make it". Call State Farm again and they said they would get someone else. NO ONE called. TWO AND A HALF HOURS LATER I CALL AGAIN. This time the tow will be there in an hour. REALLY???? Wait for 3.5 hours??? In the dark waiting for single digit temperatures??? NO you do NOT understand. You say you do but really you DO NOT.
I crawled the car home. If it broke down again on the way I thought I could be close enough to walk home and ditch the car. THE CAR IS STILL NOT AT THE DEALER WHERE I CAN GET IT FIXED.
I PAY for emergency service. What am I paying for???????????? Emergency service. I did get what I pay for.
To make it better you should tow the car from my house to the dealer. At MY convenience.
The 2 times we have needed help from them *after paying insurances for over 45 years, they ripped us off completely...we may as well have self-insured as we would have come out ahead. They are a joke.
Forty five year customers with no claims or tickets until hurricane Irma. Five months after hurricane still haggling with them to settle claim losses. In that span of time I haven't spoken to the same person twice...they have an army of unskilled, unprofessional personnel incapable of solutions. An adjuster has never been assigned nor did one come onsite to observe damages. The agent's office is equally ineffective. They are on the ready to sell you products but not help you with claims. They mishandled my losses and expect me to pay premiums on a non-existent vehicle in order to keep the policy until I can replace the total loss vehicles. Extortion anyone? Never met nor can I reach the owner of the agency...only allowed to deal with staff. Our business with State Farm includes insuring five vehicles and a house. Once our business is done, I am moving on. Don't be fooled. They might have been the best in the industry at one time but read reviews before doing business with them as they fall very short. Oh, and at bi-annual policy renewals, there's always a premium hike they cannot explain. Avoid headaches, disappointment, stress, delays, red tape and take your money elsewhere. Corporate really needs to take a look at their crumbling business and how the trickle down affects customers.
Good afternoon, I am the son of Raymond Raffaelli. He has just been notified from his agent that his home owners insurance is being canceled at the end of February. This all stems from him filing a claim due to the fact that the retirement home he was staying in burned to the ground in the Santa Rosa fires. Him and my mom have been with this agent and company ever since I was a child. (I am now 56) I think that they changed for a year or two when they were persuaded by AARP. He lost everything in this fire including all of his worldly possessions as well as anything that was my moms who past away in 2017. It has been hard enough to loss my mom as well as his new place of residence. He has since moved up to the Roseville area to a new retirement community. He still owns a house in Santa Rosa that he is renting out. Now he gets the new at nearly 90 years old that he is losing his insurance on that home. Does this country not take care of there elderly anymore. I understand that this is business and the way the world is right now. This may also stem from the claims for the flooring due to the flooding of the washer a couple years ago. If you can enlighten me on this please let me know. Thank you
My car was stolen State Farm was supposed to be there to help they made everything so much more difficult than what it was they recovered my car but still it was not towed from the location they found it for more than 20 days finally the police department had to tow it because State Farms insurance or tow trucks would not come get the vehicle which made me have to pay out-of-pocket for a rental car because you only have 20 days or approximately $750 at $25 a day for the rental car and after that it's up to you to pay every day on your own and if they would have towed the car immediately after finding it I would not have had a $700 car rental bill. I repeatedly called everyday asking them to please tow the car to the lot so an adjuster could come out and total the damages and the car could be towed to the repair facility. I will never forget this experience and not in a good way not to mention I still pay my car payment every week plus for the car plus my car insurance and I had a $500 deductible for the car damages and then I had another $500 deductible for this that was stolen nobody nobody is even taking the time to tell me what I need to do to file the claim for renters insurance for the items that were stolen inside the car needless to say this is been a horrifying experience and I hope when you guys research the car insurance you going to get leave out State Farm they don't deserve your business ake the claim to even get the property the money for the propertythat was stolen in the car it's absolutely absurd and State Farm is horrible
I have had a policy for my doctors office at 6626 (rental) & 6628 La Jolla Blvd in La Jolla, CA along with another property at 361 Kolmat street at the same location. I have owned this property for 40 years and have never made a claim. I retired from practice and in the process of converting the unit into a residence. I contacted the office of Terry Hudkins specifically Carola when my policy became due in November of 17. She stated to pay $500 and that she will adjust my policy from a doctors office to a residence. Today I got a check back from State Farm and they stated my policy was canceled. This is totally unacceptable treatment. I will never ever deal with Terry Hudkins office again and feel he should be reprimanded for his unprofessionalism and the way he represents your company.
My daughters car was rear-end on October 7, 2017 in Marion, Ohio. The girl that was driving the car has State Farm Insurance. No one has called me from State Farm. On November 16, Herbs Grahams collision repairs called and stated that State Farm refused to pay for the entire replacement of the bumper to my daughters car. None of which I had been informed by State Farm. Herb's gave me a number to call SFI. I called and was connected to a very rude man. The representative stated that they would not pay due to prior damage and there was red paint on it. I have pictures of the accident right after it happened and before the cars were removed. There was NO red paint on the car. The rear end accident caused the damage to the car - it had NEVER been rear-ended before. In trying to explain this to the service rep - he said he could see red paint! Needless to say this person has not EVER seen the car just through photos down loaded to his computer! The car has red tail lights under the trunk that could possible be mistaken. I requested to speak with the adjustor and was told that wasn't allowed. I asked for a complaint process and was told to go through MY insurance company and have them pay for it! I don't appreciate doing a car half-ass when it is a brand new car. The accident was no fault of my daughter's and I want it to be fixed correctly. The accident is causing the bumper to be unsafe.
Rudest most unprofessional experience ever but I guess that's the privilege of being the local state farm office owner's son. Have been sorting through painful death of my brother in August. Was having a very unpleasant conversation in which Craig Baxter (son of Baxter Griffith), was rude and I finally confronted his attitude, and he told me he was quite annoyed as he had already spoken with my sister a few times. I said sorry we are disorganized but death is messy and I wasn't being high maintenance. Turns out my brother's insurance expired the day before I called (which was our fault, not blaming State Farm for that...we are catching up..and even though he spoke to my sister, we have a ton of stuff to do with this estate and I am paying the bills). I told him I was disappointed in his tone, which at best was cavalier and lacking any empathy or any real interest in helping. I was going to pay for my deceased brother's insurance over phone but wanted to ensure it was valid and he said we needed to add a vacancy clause, since my brother's condo was unoccupied. That all made sense, but talking to him was like sorting out a high-level puzzle as he was clearly annoyed to be talking to me and it was clear he didn't want to help. Of course, he told me we were one day too late to pay, which may be true and totally our fault, but who would trust he did anything to help after his incredibly nasty behavior to me. Sorry Craig Baxter that my brother's painful death cause you to repeat yourself over several conversations. Good luck to anyone who relies on this office. I would never trust them. Considering calling the corporate office and pursuing this more. Very upsetting experience that goes beyond the insurance discussion.
Hello, My name is Angel Tunstall - Policy # of your insured driver is 3114012. My claim # is 041211D99. Police Report # is WC1723906. State Farm Specialist assigned to me is Rob Chase. Please be advised that I am in the process of filing a formal complaint with NAIC and sending a formal letter to State Farm's CEO Mr. Michael Tipsord if a reasonable resolution has not been reached soon . I was hit by one of your insurers. The police report proves she was a fault. The first call I made to State Farm, the CSR agent was very polite and kind. I wish I would've taken names but the last 2 agents were very rude to me. A guy that I spoke with twice stands out because he was very quick and abrupt with his words, snappy type of speech. I worked in customer service so I am very aware of how I'm supposed to be addressed. I have been treated as if I am the villain for what happened to me. My world has been turned upside down and this has added weight to my issues. My 2nd complaint is that due to the accident, my car suffered external and internal damages. the impact causes my car to shake uncontrollably when driven at a speed over 50 mph. Wen the adjuster came to look at the external damage I was compensated quickly but when he came to the mechanic shop, the mechanic explained to him the effects from the impact and damages it caused but all the adjuster did was take pictures and stated there is noting wrong with my car. Not once did he drive it or ask to ride in it to see if it shakes. How can he tell by just looking at my car? State Farm has not held up to the standards claimed... like a good neighbor you are there. My experiences so far are pretty negative. Thank You for your help in this matter.
Call the office to down grade my policy , told me she would call me back... and explain .. call back with same policy and was not trying to take anything off. This happen 2 times. I cannot see my policy online... raise my policy by 10$ ... did not
give me any information in the mail on this ... poor service ... no stars from me !!!
I have been with State Farm for 39 years. I like State Farm. I do not like the commercials now that have Aaron Rodgers in them. He is against standing for the National Anthem. His views are not consistent with the majority of America. Please remove Aaron Rodgers from these commercials.
It disgust me knowing that State Farm is giving him endorsements for these commercials. Please don't start losing customers because of this.
The time is now
I had my 2008 BMW 3 serviced at certified BMW service location and found they had stolen significant parts from my vehicle that devalued the car. I have tried to get a State Farm representative to assist me with the claim, but I have been given every excuse under the sun as to why they won't send an adjuster out to even look at the car. First they said it wasn't covered under my policy, then they said I needed to send before and after pictures which I produced. They then said they couldn't tell if the pictures displayed any evidence. They then told me that based on pictures they couldn't see any difference. This would all be solved if they simply sent an adjuster out to look at the car. They have obviously decided they will not pay the claim and are blowing me off. I have been paying State Farm premiums for over 30 years and this is the treatment I am receiving. I have even sent them the car fax to show what is supposed to be on the car and now is removed. What more should I have to do?
I have been a client for 15 years. I have 4 policies 2 car 1 renters insurance 1 salon liability policy. My apartment got flooded and lost everything but the clothes on my back. Renters covers nothing. My salon has liability insurance and it's in a Senior living complex they flooded evacuated all residents i am not working for month. I am covered for lost wages under policyThe power was off for 5 days and gas is off till kitchen rebuilt. Latrice from Georgia the claims adjuster calls me a fraud and said too bad you get nothing. I would tell ya'll to shove it and find a new insurance company but Megan my agent has been caring and kind. You need to Fire Latrice for being a Mean Hateful Bully unless you condon that behavior especially after the Hell I've been through. Dana Christian
I have gone to the State farm office on Meadow St. in Ithaca N.Y, to pay my car insurance every month, but now for the last two months there never opened except every once in awhile with no office hours on the door any more. We tried going to another State Farm further from me, but I was informed they couldn't take my payment and that I could only go to the office where I received my car insurance to make my payment. Never ever have I heard anything like this before! What is going on with the State Farm office on Meadow St. because everyone is talking about it and know one has an answer. It is so rude not letting anyone know and all my family and friends could not understand why I couldn't pay my bill at a different State Farm where they were opened. What is going on!
I requested a tow on 9.1.17. The TNM towing company said they would be there at 4:24 pm. I tracked them on the website ( map ). I was waiting at the vehicle when they were 4 minutes away. Then the web tracker said he was no longer in route and not on the map. I waited another hour and called them. They said they were stuck in traffic because of accidents. I waited another hour and called and they said that they were on the way. They arrived over 2 hours late. This type of service is unexceptionable. I want a full refund of my tow. Thanks Chesle
I have 3 cars covered by State Farm one was a 2005 Honda Accord I sold it and purchase another car 2013 Honda Accord called to get coverage on the car Ohio law requires you must have insurance before you drive a car off the lot. I had the the car for 2 years paid insurance for 2 years until I needed roadside assistance and found out the 2013 Accord was not insured I was left out neglected denied reimbursement for a tow and no financial discount rate provided or offered like good neighbor you guys weren't there. I paid insurance on a car I didn't own and I'm thankful I didn't have an accident I know for certain that I would have been ignored. Just looking for this Company to Care like they advertise I'm very disappointed with how this situation was handled!!!!
My claim# is 420639B56. I submitted an invoice for a reimbursement payment on 7/24/17 for the amount of $143.22. When I did not received the payment that was owed to me, I resubmitted a request / reminder on 7/24/17. As of 8/30/17, I still have not received my money. So, again this morning, I sent another reminder to please pay me the past due amount of $143.22. This check should be sent to my address which is 4915 W Hedgewall Circle, Memphis, TN 38141. I don't appreciate being given the run around about an agreement that was made with your company. Enough time has passed for me to have received funds. I'm asking that someone in your office confirm and respond when I should expect my money. I called several times leaving messages for adjuster to call me and I've been unsuccessful in reaching her. This is not how business should be handled.
Approximately 2-weeks ago, 3/20/17, my wife and I were mailed a letter, indicating that my insurance rates on my 2016 Nissan Frontier were going to be increased. No reason was given for this rate increase. I have a perfect driving record with this vehicle ,not even a traffic ticket. When my wife e-mailed StateFarm agent, Kirk Goodnight's office,the reason given for the rate increase was that I was over the low mileage discount. This was an out and out lie. When she asked them how they knew the mileage on the truck, they claimed that a third party had told them the mileage,another lie. I am still way below the 7,500 miles per year to qualify for this discount. When Kirk's office was notified of this they finally said,okay we will not raise your rates on this vehicle at this time. What kind of insurance agent would have these kind of business ethics. I am currently shopping around for a different automobile insurance company, with an honest way of treating their insured clients.
I pay my auto insurance in person with cash. I'm not interested in any other method. State farm insurance office in Tillamook, Oregon is often closed during business hours. So far, I have made several attempts to make a payment on 11/17/16 and 11/18/16 both attempts were met with locked doors and lights out. First attempt sign on door saying "closed for weekly meeting" will reopen at 3pm the time was 3:06p.m. Second attempt sign on door saying "closed for lunch" will reopen at 2:30 p.m. time is 1:25p.m. I don't know how long there lunches are or there so called weekly meetings but I've had enough of this nonsense and am switching providers. Says on the ver same door "open 9-5 Monday thru Friday"i. And that is what it should be. Goodbye state farm.
On 10/12/2016, your insured crashed into my privacy fence. I called the Claims center as informed and provided extensive information to a representative, Meckus. After which, I was sent a claim assign via my email address and assigned a Claim associate, Jody Maze. I then called requesting to speak with Jody Maze; however, Lori Albright answered and stated that she could help me. It wasn't until this time that I learned that I needed to provide an estimate of damages to my fence and pictures if I posed them. Additionally, I asked Lori to send via email what was requested of me (see below).
Per our conversation if you would choose a place to repair your fence and submit an invoice/bill to State Farm for review and payment. If you have photos of the damaged fence that would also be appreciated. If you would like to send to my email directly you can also do that. Please call State Farm Insurance Companies with any questions.
The contact number was 844-292-8615, extension 331, with a mailing address of PO Box 106171 Atlanta, GA 30348. I was given the email address: Statefarmclaims@statefarm.com. I then had an estimate performed by Long Fence and submitted via email back to Lori along with multiple pictures of the truck and damage to my fence, this occurred on 10/23/2016. In this email, I requested that Lori please provide an update. I have heard nothing to date. Since this was through no fault of my own, I feel I have provided the necessary information needed and would like the courtesy of a response and my fence being repaired by State Farm.
The claim I put in was not investigated very well. The driver under state farm was speeding the day he hit my dog. I feel it was my fault as well as his and that's why I only ask for half the vet bill. I called the state farm office who represents the driver and I was not very happy with the investigation. The person I talked to said she didn't even ask him if he was speeding.
I am suppose to be dealing with my State Farm agent. I called 3 different times after September 9, 2016 to be sure a fax I sent her went thru, each time I spoke to someone different. The one name I remember was Rhonda not the one I wanted, they each assured me the fax had come in. Then today (Sep 20, 2016) I get a letter by e-mail saying it was not there. Time to take my complaint to the head office maybe?
I was dropped for making 4 claims in 6 years. Admittedly the first 2 were totally legitimate. The third was because THEIR adjuster inspected my roof & caused multiple damages. They deemed my roof fine but it was in such fragile shape that a 90 pound girl cause multiple leaks walking around on it. This "claim" was their fault entirely. The 4th claim was a busted water pipe that I was able to have fixed very reasonably and I cancelled the claim within a couple of hours. The agent said he couldn't do anything yet when I called their 800 number they said it was his call. Anyway this isn't the way to treat a 19 year customer.
I originally cancelled my policies because my premiums would never stay the same, they would jump 20-30 dollars at a time. I finally got tired of them saying they couldn't do anything and cancelled my policies. Well after I had cancelled the policies they still drafted my account for $197 and I only got refunded $77.
My agent is Curt Smith of the State Farm office in Bloomfield, CT. I have been with State Farm for about 10 years. I currently insure five cars and two houses with State Farm. I am writing to express my dissatisfaction with treatment I received from Curt Smith. I have two issues: the first concerns an incident in his office on June 20, 2016 ( see emails below for specifics), and the second is Mr. Smith's failure to provide me with copies of my insurance policies. I requested these materials, in writing, on two separate occasions and Mr. Smith has yet to respond (see emails below for specifics). All my premiums are current and I feel I have a right to copies of policies that I pay for. I am requesting that you take whatever action necessary to get the requested information mailed to me promptly. I look forward to you timely response to these issues.
We had a meeting today at 1:30pm to discuss business. You agreed to the meeting at approximately 1:10pm today during a phone conversation with me. I arrived at your office about 1:25pm and was told you were on the phone by the receptionist. I sat in the waiting area expecting to meet with you shortly. Soon after, one of your employees (Mr. Brown I believe) called me by name to tell me he would let you know I was waiting. I waited patiently until 1:45pm and then left. At no time did anyone say a word to me about the delay. Remember we had scheduled the appointment about a half hour earlier.
If I had stayed, I have to believe that you and your staff would have left me sitting in your waiting area for another 35 minutes before you would see me, thus, making you 50 minutes late for our scheduled meeting. No one in your office apologized for the delay nor did you apologize in either the phone message or text message you left on my phone. To me, your behavior is unprofessional, disrespectful, inconsiderate, and unconscionable. I have two houses and five cars insured with you and have been paying premiums for close to ten years. You disappointed me, I expected more from you.
I called you immediately after getting off the phone with a client who had there home broken into and was very upset. I often deal with customers during traumatic times and consider it my responsibility to assist any way I can. I followed up with a text an hour later because I had not heard back. I do not think it is professional to leave too much detail on a voicemail or text. Yes I apologize for not being available. I have never not been available for any of your questions and do not understand your response. If you would like to discuss in more detail, I will be available most of the day tomorrow.
Despite what you say, documenting communication between parties makes sense by providing a record for future reference. It's not unprofessional, it's good business practice. But that's beside the issue. It troubles me that you do not understand my response. I guess you think it OK to leave a client waiting in your office indefinitely for a scheduled appointment when you are unavailable. That is just rude. And I find your apology disingenuous. You knew I was there. You could have easily gotten a message to me that you had to deal with an unexpected crisis and that we would need to reschedule. That would have been the decent thing to do. I would have understood and we would not be in the situation we are now in. Having said that, I truly don't understand why you didn't just provide a sincere apology and accept responsibility for what may have just been an oversight. That would have ended it as well. Instead you offer a defensive email which shows a total disregard for the inconvenience you caused me. Moving forward, it would be difficult for me to deal with someone with your apparent attitude and mindset.
Anyway, please send me a copy of each of my policies (both houses and all the cars) with as much detail as possible. I want to know the exact coverage with all associated costs. Thanks in advance for your prompt response to this request. On June 22, 2016 I requested copies of my insurance policies sent to me. I have thus far not received anything from you. I am requesting that you send me a copy of each of my policies (both houses and all the cars) that specifies the coverage and associated costs as soon as possible. Thanks. This is the second request for these materials.
The worst experience ever. I joined State Farm in October of 2014, the agent offered me a 2 dollar offer to start and that was going to cover the first 19 days. After two years when I decided to cancelled the policy due to a ridiculous increase of my insurance of almost 100% after one minor accident, I pay my last bill during the first two days and expect to get my reimbursement but to my surprise they gave me 208 out of 436 when I called them to ask the reason to received only 28 I was notified that I had to pay the first 19 days of the month stating that I had always pay my bill late. When I told them about the two dollars offer that I received from the agent, they just laughed and said well we just help you and allowed you to be late every month and refused to gave me my reimbursement of the last bill that I pay. I am so disappointed that a company like state farm used dishonest agency to obtain new costumers.
While at work I called agent Jim Parker's office. I asked for Linda; a person named Robin asked my name and then stated she was not there. I asked for LaSandra; and she again asked my name. At that time I was receiving a fire call and had to hang up. Today I called again and voice mail picked up and stated all lines were busy; leave name and number. I asked for Linda to return my call and left my name and number. Later my office phone rang and the woman said her name was Robin from State Farm. I asked for Linda and she said Linda was no longer there and hung up. I waited for a return call thinking a disconnection had happened. I was entering a fire report in the computer and when finished I decided to call the Customer Service for State Farm.
I called 800.782.8332 and talked to a woman explaining what happened and I also asked if Jim Parker was still working for State Farm as an agent and not sure who or what was happening at his office. She put me on hold twice for a specialist and I finally after 10 minutes asked her to take my name and number I too, was at work and could not hold any longer. Did not receive a call back from that person but a person from Jim Parker's office called and left a message. The specialist from Customer Service had called my agent's office and not returned my call. This is not customer service.
I just now received another call from Robin at State Farm stating she had a message on her desk that I thought she hung up on me. She stated she had phone problems and it cut off. I stated to her that when our office gets cut off or has phone problems - we either use another phone or call back that person when the phone is working. I'm sure this will continue on because I have not talked with AGENT Jim Parker in over a year.
While shopping for insurance, I spoke to a State Farm representative that quoted me approximately a $130/month policy for my auto and renters insurance. Within 2 weeks, I got a letter from State Farm stating they were cancelling my policy, because of MY lack of disclosure of an accident. Which WAS discussed during this call, as State Farm paid the accident. After finally reaching an Agent, and was informed the representatives didn't handle the quote correctly, and the Agent would look into the situation. After a number of days, I was forced to call the Agent back to find out some kind of resolution. The Agent at that time informed me a policy would be about $134/month. Ok that's fine, what's a few more dollars.
The very next day, the same Agent called me to say this policy was now going up another $20.. WOW..I needed to make sure I had coverage and went with it. The Agent told me to look around for other insurance, which I did. Within less than 1 hour I called to cancel this policy. The Agent said he would be right on getting me my refund. After another 3 weeks of waiting for my refund, I called the Agent and have now been given the most ridiculous run-around conceivable. Now I have to wait for someone in this company to locate my policy, check that it was cancelled, and wait possibly another 2 weeks for money that is mine. When State Farm requested my money, it was there. Now to retrieve my own money is an impossibility. I think this whole company could use some basic customer service education.
The insolent people they have on the phone to help solve problems the consumer is already unhappy with, is a sad portrait of their business practices. I would NEVER recommend State Farm for anything. Sad corporations have gotten so busy, they have no time to see how their employees are handling any situation, and allow rude, insensitive, insulting people to say they represent them. I am appalled.
I have been a customer for several years. I have a motorcycle policy with you and now an auto policy. My agent is Jaime Puentes. They were unable to do as expected for me. Due to inadequate processes. I was near cancellation and lapse in coverage. I called another agent and they were able to help in some degree. But due to the Puentes office and games they played with transferring my policy. The new agent could only do so much. This has been the most ridiculous situation with insurance I have ever had!! Hands down!! If you want any further information about this atrocity! Please feel free to contact me either by email or phone.
I was in an accident on April 18, 2016. I filed a claim rite away. The next day, I got a call from my agent. Saying there was nothing they could do for me since I only had liability. I Said, what. I should have full coverage. She said, no you don't. I said, I called you when I bought my car, in December of 2014 and told one of State Farms agents. That I bought a new car and told them who was financing it. And that I needed full coverage, cause im making payments on it. I even sent the financing company my ins info on a form. I was told to fax or mail to them. I did my job.
I just assumed the financing company and my ins agent. Did their job. This is ridiculous . Now I cant afford to get my car fixed. When I told them I called right away and changed everything my agent said, its my word against them.Also, im suppose to have rental ins on my policy. The person from claims. Said, no because u don't have collision u don't have it. But its on my policy. So here is my question, what am I paying ins for? Its sad because my mom, my grandma, and my brother were customers of you. Not anymore.
They said, they could put collision on my insurance. What good is that.There not doing anything to help me. And I don't know if im going to have a car to even ins. after this. im very dissatisfied and angry , about this whole mess. And know one is taking responsibility for it. so im the one suffering.The one who trusted them to do their job. Its funny on my policy they changed the make and model of my car but not the policy. Its kinda fishy to me.
My claim # is 538L08299. My BMW was totaled in the Houston floods of 4/18/2016. Flood water was pulled into the air intake which "hydro-locked" the engine (I have been told this by 3 different BMW dealership service department managers). This apparently results in a ruined engine and the vehicle is totaled. I had the car towed to a nearby garage that works frequently with State Farm adjusters. Their is a State Farm approved mechanic there who can examine your vehicle, this helps speed up the process for the adjuster when they arrive to inspect the vehicle. The mechanic has informed me that the engine is in fact flooded out and I likely have a "blown head gasket".
As of today, 4/25/2016, no one from State Farm has arrived to inspect the vehicle. I was told to "wait in line like everyone else". I realize that this weather event resulted in a large number of claims, but I have been waiting a week for what I am told is a process that takes a few minutes. The adjuster arrives, files a "total loss estimate", and I can proceed with obtaining another vehicle. I was also informed by State Farm that many "field teams" have arrived in the area to expedite the claims process. Can someone please stop by the garage and inspect my vehicle? I am frustrated with waiting in line.
I was granted renters insurance for $152.00 on the spot. They accepted my payment. A month later, they reject me as a customer, because of an investigation of some sought. Why accept my payment.d They sent me a refund check for $129.00. All I'm asking is for the balance. I have proof that they accepted my payment.
On Feb 24,2016 central Va suffered a tornado. I was one of the lucky ones but I did have some roof damage. I have been a costumer for almost 30 yrs and never had a homeowner claim. Its been almost 6 weeks later and I'm still waiting. I did have 1 adjuster come out and took look at the damage. When he was there he told me he thought I called just replace some of the shingles maybe a 100 or more? I told him I didn't want a mix match roof...he told me don't worry people don't look up.
The storm took my ridge cap off...he told me i didn't need one of those anyway. It was on my roof before...then why I'm I paying insurance on it. Then when they called my son was having surgery and didn't answer the phone, they close my claim. This has happened to me 3 times. It is very frustrating. I am still waiting. I would tell anyone don't get State Farm ins. I thought having a company like State Farm would be better even if you paid little more in your premium.
I have been with State Farm since the mid to late 80's with different agents over the yrs. I'm now with an agent I've been with since early 2000's. I have a history of no more than 2 or so accidents over the years. And I cannot understand why my insurance goes up every yr. In May of 2015 I received a discounted rate of $442.75. Thinking that would be my rate. 6month's later it's up again $561.83. renewal for May 2016 you have me paying $728.77. why is this happening, is my account number right or what. Please review my acct. information, as I'm on a fixed income and have been with the State Farm Family for 30 plus yrs.
As you can see I was involved in an accident. My complaint is they paid Latacia Pruitt. I have tried to talk to someone in all the depart and they say they can't talk to me. Latacia did not file the claim. I've just started to look for an attorney because state farm has shut me out of my own claim and paid my daughter which have LIED AND TOOK the money. I was getting my paper work together and notice that all the texts from Darwin Franklin and the forms sent by Pam had been deleted out my computer. After contacting Google customer service they had me call an outside company that could retrieve all my email. When I called (888)551-2881 they said there was a virus planted in my gmail and it had to be state farm because it the only mail missing.
So for over 2 hrs today we were online and retrieved 6 of the deleted text from Darwin tomorrow they will finish and try to get the form Pam sent me. this is costing me $149 when they finish the only way I will not be charge if they can't find Pam's email. The point of the message is that who would have thought that Rigo and Darwin would go to so much trouble unless they did something wrong and, they work in your claim Department. When I signed on to the claim they are not there neither, so this shows something has been done wrong. it has only 4 forms no communication from Jan 20 to Feb 15, but they extended the rental. You should have my texts which explain how hard I have been trying to understand what happened. I waiting on something from your dept to fix this problem or at least contact me.
I have been with state farm since 2010 and the agent that I have was terrible so I change my agent. Second I found out that someone decided to but my daughter on my policy and did not ask me my daughter had her own policy and by them doing that my premium went up. Here is the problem state farm don't have the right to change my policy without my permission and I did not give my permission also I spoke with my agent and no gave them the information
so my policy need to be put back like it was and the price on the premium put back. I also in formed my agent that I will not pay 128.00 at all and I will not pay my premium until it fix no has the right to put another driver on my policy unless I say its ok.
I recently switched to State Farm because the price they quoted me for my premium was less than what I was paying currently. I paid for half my premium upfront. When I went online to check my account it said it was still in the underwriting process. I called and the rep said sometimes it takes a couple of days. I checked back a week later and realized they raised my premium without telling me. Had I known that my premium was so expensive I would not have switched or purchased that policy.
I called State Farm customer service to cancel and to find out why I was not notified that my premium would be increased. The rep I spoke to said he would cancel and refund my money. It has now been two weeks and 6 phone calls later. I have not received my money and I recently found out the rep only canceled the policy on one car instead of both. Today I called and the rep said only one car was processed and she did not know when the other would be done. I have tried complaining through the proper channels but it has not worked. All I want is my money back and to have nothing more to do with that company.
