State Farm Halts Homeowners Insurance in California

One of the country’s biggest insurance companies, State Farm, has recently made a decision that will affect many people. They are no longer offering new homeowner’s insurance policies in California due to what they call “rapidly growing” disasters. If you are a homeowner in California and are looking for a new insurance provider, RRM Insurance is a great option. Although obtaining the insurance coverage you need is becoming exceedingly difficult, choosing to work with RRM Insurance as a reliable insurance partner is a wise decision in these uncertain times.

The Reasons Behind State Farm’s Decision

State Farm’s choice to halt new homeowners policies in California is mainly due to the escalating wildfire issue, highlighted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Wildfires have been causing more and more trouble since the 1980s, worsened over the last two decades by ongoing droughts that keep plants dry. While wildfires happen in many places other than California, California has become known for them. This year, California has dealt with a mix of natural disasters – storms, floods, droughts, and fires – creating quite a mess. State Farm’s decision essentially comes down to a need to manage the increased risk they are exposed to due to these disasters, as well as the rising costs of construction.

What’s at Stake for Homeowners?

Homeowners in California are finding that it is becoming incredibly difficult to find affordable insurance for their properties. Although State Farm is no longer offering new policies in California, existing policyholders are still covered. Many states other than California, such as Louisiana and Florida, find themselves in critical insurance situations because they are losing coverage as insurance companies become increasingly risk-averse. This is a serious issue because it could lead to a chain reaction of higher insurance rates and fewer options for homeowners.

Initiatives such as the first-ever insurance discount program for wildfire safety and significant wildfire mitigation investments demonstrate their commitment to addressing the crisis.

I am a small commercial contractor and they have helped us walk through the bonding processes. They have been very respectful, welling to answer all of our questions, and provided great advice. The best part is that we have been able to do several public projects that require a bid bond and then a performance bond. They are really responsive and provide great service. I have no concerns giving them 5 stars and recommending them.
