How to cancel State Farm Insurance Policy

How to Cancel Your State Farm® Insurance Policy

Times and situations change. We get that, and we’re committed to making your decision a smooth transition. To cancel your State Farm insurance policy, choose one of these methods.

Cancel by phone

  1. 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.
  2. Cancellations by phone are typically effective immediately, or you can schedule it for a date in the future.
  3. Many states require you to inform the DMV when you cancel or change your auto insurance, but check your specific state’s guidelines or ask your agent if this is necessary.
  4. 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.

Cancel by mail

To cancel your policy, write a letter that includes the information below.

  • Your name, address and phone number.
  • Your State Farm policy number and the date and time you want your policy to end.
  • If you’re switching providers, your new insurer’s name, policy number and policy start date.
  • If you’ve sold your vehicle, you may be required to provide proof of plate forfeiture or your bill of sale.

Sign, date and mail your letter at least two weeks before your intended cancellation date, leaving time for delivery and processing, to the address below.
