2016 Trophy With PlaquesFor the fifth year in a row, Farm Bureau Insurance of Tennessee ranks highest among auto insurance providers in the Southeast Region in the J.D. Power 2016 U.S. Auto Insurance Study.sm

Fifteen auto insurance providers were measured in eight southeastern states: Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

The study measured customer satisfaction with auto insurance companies across five factors (in order of importance): interaction, policy offerings, price, billing process and policy information, and claims. The average for the Southeastern Region was 825; Farm Bureau Insurance - Tennessee achieved a score of 870.

 “According to J.D. Power, the biggest driver of overall satisfaction is the interaction companies have with their customers. Achieving the customer satisfaction award five consecutive years reflects the consistency at every touch point of customer service – agents, claims, customer service center, local offices, and home office operations," said Sonny Scoggins, Farm Bureau Insurance chief executive officer.

The centerpiece of the 2014 campaign was 34 “Pink Out” high school football games hosted by Farm Bureau Insurance agencies across Tennessee. The games—played from the end of August through October—generated almost $300,000, uniting communities across the state to honor breast cancer survivors and educating people about the disease.

“To have raised more than $1,000,000 to benefit Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in only three years is truly unbelievable. This was made possible by the tireless efforts and generosity of Farm Bureau Insurance representatives. These proceeds will help the American Cancer Society seek better ways to prevent, detect and treat breast cancer, as well as provide help and hope to people facing this disease. I couldn’t be more proud of our company,” said Farm Bureau Insurance CEO Sonny Scoggins.
