Not resolved

State Farm is by far one of the WORST insurance company's I've ever had to deal with. I live in Branford, CT and we got hit by "Hurricane Sandy" lost power for (4) days. We had to stay in a hotel in New Haven, CT which is about (5) miles from Branford until the power was restored. In addition we lost about (100.00) in food; between the cost of the hotel stay for the (4) days and the food lost we were out (973.00). State Farm refuses to pay any part of our claim; As a matter of fact they did the same exact thing last year when we got hit by "Hurricane Irene" where we lost power for (4) days and (400.00) in food. All other major insurance companies in CT ie (All State, The Hartford, Travelers, Geico) waived the deductible for their customers; but NOT State Farm. They are so *** greedy and heartless that they refuse to show any compassion for their customers. So I'm dropping them IMMEDIATELY and will never do business with them again ever nor would i recommend them to anyone.

Highly Disappointed,

Zach Smith

Monetary Loss: $973.

Why would you 'have' to stay in a hotel? We all lost power and sure as *** didn't get the luxury of being in a hotel.

That's an unnecessary expense. And regardless, it has nothing to do with your policy.


Are you kidding me? You really, honestly believe that you get a huge rate break for carrying a higher deductible and you think an insurance company should just "waive" your deductible?

No way. How about they just waive your deductible and then you pay all those premium dollars back?

You are not seeing other companies waive a deductible. You're seeing other policyholders who have much higher losses than you and the TOTAL of the losses have far exceeded the deductibles.

That's why they're getting paid. Making claims for these tiny amounts is only going to get you cancelled. Insurance is for major claims, not for $400 here and $900 there.

By making those claims you've caused yourself to have a hard time getting coverage elsewhere. When the other companies run the "CLUE" report on you, you're going to be denied a policy or your rate is going to be outrageous.
