State Farm's Cancellation Policy

Breaking up is hard, especially in home insurance. While State Farm makes it easy to make adjustments to your policy online, if you want to cancel, you have to call your local State Farm insurance agent. If you don't know your agent's number, or they have moved, you can dial the State Farm helpline: 800-782-8332.

Cancel By Phone

Expect a sales pitch on why you should absolutely stay with State Farm.

However, if you decide to go through with the cancellation, you will need to provide your agent with:

  • Policy Number
  • Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Social Security Number
  • Cancel Effective Date (can cancel same day)

Cancel By Mail

You can also cancel by mail - write a letter in the following format:

Are There Cancellation Fees?

The nice thing about State Farm is there are usually no cancellation fees! Even if you cancel halfway through your policy term, you will get a pro-rated refund for the unused portion of your premium. You can cancel at any time during your policy term.

Notify Your Escrow Manager/Mortgage Servicer

Your lender will want to have a copy of your new insurance declarations page. Make sure to contact your mortgage servicing company to update them with the new policy documents. Also double-check the mortgagee clause on your new policy:

- Your Mortgage Loan #
- FULL LEGAL NAME of your Lender
- Lender Address
