I'm in the insurance business and did not know I was a scumbag. Thanks for letting me know. I do not work for State Farm but would find it hard to believe that your fathers accident was the only thing that cause them to non-renew his policy. If other family members have had accidents and/or tickets they would take those into to account. As for the Umbrella Policy it has the same underwriting guidlines as the auto and why would they keep a large liabilty policy if they are terminating the auto policy to get off the liability. I'm not saying that your family is a bad risk but sometimes things in a large family add up and the Insurance Co. has to make a decision to keep a policy or to cancel. The so called scumbag agent has little or no say in the matter and can only try to talk the underwriters into keeping the policy.

That is my mistake. Apparently, the policy holders own the company. Unfortunately, it is not the case for all insurance companies.

Are you a State Farm policy holder? If so, do you know what kind of influence you have over the operations of the company (to prevent immoral conduct)?

Maybe it's just me, but I think he is calling the "agency" a scumbag. Either way, he is most likely pretty angry and may have said it in different terms otherwise. I'm not trying to speak for others, I am just taking a guess because I have done the same thing before.

Re: Auto Insurance

I work for Nationwide/Allied and I dont know what their rates are for sure. I just started there a while back, and I haven't switched my policy over yet. But I have been paying $1200 a year for my 97 Chrysler LHS with EMC. That is who my parents had and they went through an independant guy who claims to only give you the best rates. I'll get back to you when I know how much of a difference there is between my work. I'm sure there will be an employee discount of some sort.

No I'm not a State Farm policy holder but I am in the insurance business. The policy holders don't have any say in how they operate but from what I have seen from them over the years is that they are a pretty fair company. That does not mean that they don't make mistakes because any company of that size will. They did not become the largest personal lines Co. by treating their customers poorly.

No he called all insurance agencies scumbage and that what I took offence to.

True, it DOES help to read fineprint. Sometimes the customer is just as much or more at fault for having crappy insurance.
