List of Largest Insurance Companies

by Chris Sherwood ; Updated June 13, 2017
Insurance is a fact of life so whether it's for your car, home or other, choose wisely.

When it comes to insurance, regardless of the type, the number of companies in the market can be overwhelming when looking for coverage. Each insurance company comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. However, going with a larger insurance company often can give a person a better deal. Larger insurance companies receive more money through greater numbers of insurance policies. This allows them to spread the cost of claims out over more people, allowing them to offer coverage at a lower price than smaller companies with fewer policies.

State Farm

One of the largest insurance companies in the United States is the State Farm Group. State Farm offers a wide range of insurance, including auto, homeowners, condo owners, renters, life and annuities, business, long-term care, motorcycle, farmer's, personal and boat owner's insurance.
