WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (August 7, 2012) – Farm Bureau Property & Casualty Insurance Company, a company of Farm Bureau Financial Services, has been ranked fourth in a nationwide homeowners claims satisfaction survey.

The survey, conducted by a leading consumer ratings publication, polled more than 11,000 readers who had filed claims in the past few years. Those participating in the survey rated companies based on their satisfaction with damage estimates, the agent’s availability to discuss the claim and the receipt of timely payment from the company.

Farm Bureau Property & Casualty Insurance Company’s fourth place ranking is ahead of a number of other large competitors in the industry, including State Farm, American Family, Nationwide, Farmers Insurance and Allstate.

“We’re pleased to have received another outstanding ranking from such a highly relevant and credible source,” said Dan Pitcher, the company’s Vice President. "It’s a real tribute to the superior service that our agents, agent staff and employees provide to policyholders each and every day.”
