State Farm cancels 72,000 policies in California.

Sharing is Caring!

State Farm plans to not renew roughly 72,000 property and commercial apartment policies in California starting this summer, the company announced Wednesday.

About 30,000 of the affected policies will be for homeowner, rental, residential community association and business owner insurance. The other approximately 42,000 will be for commercial apartment policies.

That will make up a little more than 2% of the company’s footprint in the state, the announcement said. It was California’s largest property insurer in 2022 — the most recent data available — according to the Department of Insurance.

The decision follows the company’s announcement in May that it would stop accepting new applications for property and business policies. At the time, State Farm cited higher construction costs, a growing risk from catastrophic events, such as wildfires, and challenges related to how it insures its own business.
