Success stories

Farmers Automobile Inter-Insurance Exchange was founded 1928 by two men with the common interest of providing quality auto insurance for farmers and ranchers.

Though their timing wasn't ideal as the country slid into the Great Depression, Farmers weathered the nation's economic woes. It was one of few insurance companies able to pay its policyholders' claims in cash, rather than IOUs.

Today, the company has grown well beyond policies for farmers; it covers 10 million households across all 50 states. In fact, Farmers has covered so many types of claims, the company’s website features a “Hall of Claims” sharing some incredulous stories of covered claims.

Consider Farmers for rideshare drivers

If you’re considering becoming a rideshare driver for popular services such as Uber and Lyft, consider Farmers for your insurance policy. As this relatively new insurance market emerges, Farmers is one of the few insurers offering rideshare policies in several states. A ridesharing endorsement will help to protect you during the period where the app is on before and after you have a passenger – also known as Period 1 – where insurance coverage from the rideshare company is notoriously low.
