Metlife home insurance review: Now Farmers home insurance

Farmers Insurance acquired MetLife’s home insurance policies back in 2021, meaning your home insurance policy is now through Farmers or its subsidiary Foremost.

MetLife home and auto insurance policies were acquired by Farmers Insurance in April 2021. This means that if you previously had a MetLife home insurance policy, you should have received new policy documents that are updated with branding for Farmers or Foremost (a subsidiary of Farmers).

Because of this, you’ll now have access to a slew of new perks that weren’t available with MetLife, including:

  • Additional coverages: Now that you’re under the Farmers umbrella, you’ll have access to more coverages not available through MetLife, including: flood, earthquake, and personal umbrella insurance.

  • More discount opportunities: While MetLife offered four ways to save on your home insurance rate, Farmers offers over a dozen home insurance discounts.

  • Mobile app: You can now access your policy documents, start a claim, or make a payment from the palm of your hand with the Farmers mobile app. 

  • Online claims filing: MetLife didn’t offer online claims — but Farmers does. You can file a claim online or straight through the Farmers mobile app.
