To cancel your State Farm insurance policy, you can follow these steps:
- Cancel by Phone: Contact your local State Farm agent and explain that you’d like to cancel your policy. You’ll typically need your policy number, name, and date of birth. If you’re canceling because you’ve sold your vehicle, you might also need to provide proof of your vehicle’s plate forfeiture or a bill of sale. For auto policy cancellations only, you can call 800-STATEFARM. Cancellations by phone are typically effective immediately, or you can schedule it for a date in the future.
- Cancel by Mail: Write a letter that includes your personal info and policy number. Mail this letter to State Farm headquarters in Illinois to cancel via mail.
- Cancel in Person: Make an in-person appointment with your local agent to cancel face-to-face.
Remember, many states require you to inform the DMV when you cancel or change your auto insurance. Check your specific state’s guidelines or ask your agent if this is necessary. If you’re planning on getting back on the road with a different provider, the agent might ask for your new provider’s name, policy number and effective date.
