State Farm gives you 37 days to bring your account current if you pay by any method other than automatic deduction. If your payment is deducted automatically and you contact them before the payment is due, they will cancel the payment and roll it into the next month.

This has already passed, this time the amount is 402.11 i called my agent he said bc i so not have my creditcard on file so they will need a secruity deposit, ive have other insurance companies and never in my life i had someone put my credit on file or make me pay a secruity deposit. Im very upset that you guys are billing me twice in two months. They guy at tour hemstead store is wey hard to understand seems nervous and doesnt know what he is talking about. Im very upset never been so upset and angry with this kond of stuff, im hoping this is an error otherwise i will find other insurancein that i have has cheaper before then this scam of secruity deposits, “which he compared to rental secruity deposit. This is the third time i have a prob with you guys playing around and personally dont trust ppl have my credit card in you system and never has any other insurance treat me like shit. Please explain to me what this is other then that guy who has no clue to world sounds like he makes shit up. Thank you

  2. Sorry to hear about your situation. This is rlaely unfortunate, but I’ve seen it happen many times. The truth is that insurance companies use all sorts of data about people all the time. For example when underwriting insurance policies.What State Farm and others have learned is that there is a statistical correlation between good credit and other things they think are important. This may or may not be true, but that’s what they think.Also, it’s legal to use our credit reports for all sorts of things, including getting a job. Now personally I think it’s unfair. People with bad credit ratings probably need the jobs worse than anybody, but can’t get them. Using a number makes it easy for them, and they don’t want to spend the time and money to ask about your situation and see that you are rlaely a great person and would make an excellent employee.Like I said, it’s unfair, but it’s legal. And they have these policies that they don’t break. Insurance companies are big bureaucracies almost like the government. So you can look for a different type of job or work to get your credit score up. But that’s the subject of a different post.
