I changed the Country Financial because I wanted one contact person to speak to. An agent that I know, that knows my financial needs and keeps in contact with me. I had that in a fellow named John at Country Financial. He was great returned my phone calls whenever I had a question or generally wanted to add another policy. I have four policies currently with Country Financial and for two years I have not had an agent and keep being told that I'm going to be assigned an agent. How long does it take to assign an agent? So some "supervisor" is making good money off my policies and not servicing them whatsoever!!! Sick of Country Financial! I pay more money to this company than I need to. I'm so done and I'm currently looking for a new insurance company!
Got a quote for insurance then started receiving a bill with no papers signed then started getting calls from a bill collector saying I owed money on insurance I never went with. Have tried calling numerous times. What a joke.
Country Financial Insurance has been an awful experience. First, they incorrectly wrote my insurance policy so after paying for 10 years, I had a small claim and they tied to say it wasn't covered even after they admitted that they had given me an incorrect policy for the type home. I added a car to the policy but within 2 months they changed my rate to $20 more per month without even contacting me. When I pitched a fit, they changed it back this summer. Only, I've again, after a couple months, bumped it back up hoping that I wouldn't notice on my auto draft. I had enough and cancelled my car insurance only to get a check a month later saying that they had dropped my homeowners insurance as well (notice came 3 weeks after the date they terminated) and reimbursing me for the rate. I called immediately but they refused to help. I'm disgusted with this company.
I had a life insurance policy through Country on my now deceased ex husband and with the money I had left after helping to pay off my kids college tuition and weddings and help them with a home downpayment my Insurance agent urged me to invest to make more money so that I could retire. I met with their financial services personnel and signed up and made some money while paying them several hundred dollars a month to manage it until I could see that the stock market was getting volition and I talked to my agent. He kept urging me to stay with them because I would lose all the money I invested if the stocks came up but he was not putting my money in the more Conservative stocks and I was losing at least $3000 to $5000 a day and the fund lost over 12% value before I finally pulled out. Do not allow them to talk you into their financial Services!
My insurance is through Country Financial and I love my insurance agent. We went with her because she is like "part of our family". She insurances my parents and all of my siblings. She has been here for all my family for many years and she takes care of things without me even having to ask. We stay because she gives the best customer service. Country Financial's rates could always be lower than they are. However, she contacted me about a claim after the hurricane based just on what she has read about my issues on my Facebook page.

I have had Country Financial for over 10 years and my wife had them 22 years. They seem great at sign up, I had no issues on a claim. My problem is the last 6 years my homeowner’s insurance kept going up a $100 roughly every year. This year they tried to play games with me covering my daughter under our policy which her mother (x-wife) has her on her insurance. They chose to add $130 a month without asking first and just direct debit which I caught. This is when the games began of wanting proof of her coverage and my agent saying it’s out of her control... I switched to State Farm and saved $2300 a year on the exact same coverage.
My ex-landlord has a homeowner policy with Country Financial. His Dog Attacked mine causing injuries that require followup surgery, because the adjuster at Country Financial Heather Strong does not like the way the estimates are written (because vets computer system can only Bill not estimate future expected fees). So I cannot get the money needed to finish my dog's needed treatment. Which is less than 1,800.00 most attaches from a dog the size and as aggressive as my ex-landlord's dog. With a small blind dog would be much higher. I was willing to settle for the estimated amount and pay the difference if needed just to get him back into the vet. But it's been 2 weeks and she is still saying she needs the estimate to say exactly what the fee is for. At this point no vet can estimate and will not see him without payment. So my dog and I both suffer even more from my ex landlord's negligence.
They would rather spend $15k trying to repair a vehicle that has been mangled and have the frame welded back together, and let occupants keep driving vehicles that will not react the same way the factory built the vehicle in the event of an accident - than total out the vehicle and issue replacement value. Add that to the incompetence their staff - hopeless.
Promised protection was not met. Country insurance treated us like we were professional craftsmen. Forcing us to answer questions in a time of urgency as if we knew their job. How were we suppose to know what claims fall under? Sadly they keep unjustly escalating premium costs with no liability for the treatment and lack thereof.
Customer service from Corp is excellent. Local agent in MO was outstanding. Local agent in AZ was replaced. Over more than 5 years I never met him and when I called with a problem he sent out the wrong people to solve a problem that didn’t exist. Could never reach directly by phone. New agent has also made no contact and apparently no record of my requesting additional coverage.
I have had homeowners insurance through Country Financial for several years. Today May 9, 2018 is the first time I read several reviews from this company. On April 27, 2018 I’ll call to cancel my insurance with Country Financial and I was told that it was done that day. Today on May 9. 2018, I called the company back to find out what’s the status of my request and I was told that my Insurance was still in effect and was not canceled. They gave me some mumbo-jumbo about how the company waits for a second call for cancellation and that they send it over to another office for them to process the paperwork. I was so upset with them that I decided to call the Better Business Bureau all file a complaint. Anyone if you’re listening, please read the reviews and go to another company do not use country financial!!!
My mother's house got struck by lightning and took out her AC unit and microwave. We had the AC company come by and confirm the AC was struck. The insurance company then sent out an "investigator" company. The technician from that company (HVACI) stated that it had definitely had been struck by lightning. The report was sent to Country Financial and they denied it said anything about lightning and they contributed the damage to the unit being too old (8 years old). I then called HVACI and spoke with a manager Dustin, who said they had circled a statement on their form saying lightning was the cause. Country financial said that was not true. I then called back and told the paperwork was not available.
We went in to the Country Financial office (Pooler, GA). We were told days ago that they would send out another person to investigate. Also, the owner would call first this Thursday when he got back in town. It's Friday and no one is available at the office. We have been told by several people at this point that this is the worst company to deal with. Looking at the reviews, this company needs to be investigated by the insurance commission.
Feb 20th 2017 my family experienced something unbelievable. We had a pipe burst in our home leaving us with over 10 ft of water. Called our insurance co. to file a claim only to be called back 20 min later to be denied our claim. No adjuster came out to look at the damages. No one was concerned we lost all our belongings and have no place to go. This is the worst insurance co. I have ever dealt with. Still 2 weeks later no help. What's the point of having insurance at all? My family homeless.
Filed claim on my Sea Ray Cruiser Sep 9 2017. My adjuster from Centralia IL has not cooperated with me at all. He cant look at boat on weekends or anytime I try to set up. We had words over phone. He called me an ** twice on phone. One of my employees heard him. I had him on speaker phone. Called my agent. Told me they dont have expertise to handle boat claims like cars or homes. Huh but you're going to sell me a watercraft policy. That is also on my recorded voice mail from my agent. Also informed by my agent my claim reassigned to new adjuster. Hear from them couple days. Been over a week heard nothing. I own the boat. My friend and I are going to do the bodywork. So of course adjuster treated me like scammer. This company is horrible. I'll update this post. Let everyone know how it settled out.
Had hail damage in 2017 from storms in Minneapolis, MN. My roof needed to be replaced along with some other minor damage. Country Insurance took care of everything without a problem. Even the roofing contractor was impressed.
I wanted to say thank you to all the Country Financial employees who helped my account get situated, both from the customer service line and the Pooler, Georgia location. A special thanks to Ms. ** who was able to finally get the problem fixed for me. Thank you so much for looking out for me. Please award her with a customer service award for exceptional service for Country Financial customers!
On 2/19/17 a shared water line to my condo busted and flooded my area. I contacted the association that evening. The following day a restoration company arrived. They had put holes in my drywall in order to access the exterior party wall. Air movers were placed in those areas for 3 days to dry out. When the HOA filed the claim with country the claim adjuster stated I was responsible for the dry out. I tried to explain the dry out was for the exterior not the interior wall. Unfortunately I was stuck paying the bill. If the adjuster would of taken 15 minutes out of his time to come over & assess the damage I believe I would have had different results. This is the worst insurance company I had to work with. Worse yet they are our insurers for the HOA.
I had been a Count States Insurance customer for over 50 years and they got bought out by COUNTRY INSURANCE and I had a water leak claim and it took contractor over a month to fix and we were eating out because we were inconvenienced with dishwasher being out. I think these folks are nothing but out crooks. BUYER BEWARE FOR SURE. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO NO ONE.
I had Country insurance for almost ten years. Had one claim for under 500 which agent advised me to file a claim. Now couple years later I'm in process of purchasing a home and didn't realize that claim would greatly affect me getting coverage at fair market rate. I check with several insurance companies that stated if they had been my agent they would never had advised me to file that claim. I tried to settle that matter with corporate several times. They were nasty and rude. I would not recommend this company to a dog. I will never ever use them again. The only good thing about Country Financial is they will do prompt payments but trust me you will pay for it. Hopefully they will get better. However I'm not holding my breath. Worst company ever.
I have been with Country Financial for 8 months and they are the WORST to work with. They entered my account number wrong in their system and because of this they did not receive my down payment or my 1st month payment. Setting me behind. I originally pay 183, but because of their mistake, I have to pay 325 a month to get caught up. When I called to complain about this problem, they said there's nothing they can do and I just have to pay my payments. BULL CRAP! This was so on their end not mine. I should have gotten a discount or something for their mistake!
Then I had someone hack my check books and my bank account was on freeze and no money could be taken out until I went to the bank to get everything cleared. I was 1 day late, I called them on the 16th (my payments are due on the 15th) to explain what happened and they told me that because I am late that they would charge an extra 25.00 for late fee. UNACCEPTABLE. Also told me that I could pay it on the 16th but they would rather me pay it when I got my invoice because "It's easier for them". THEY DO NOT WORK WITH THEIR CUSTOMERS AT ALL. THEY ARE GREEDY AND VERY RUDE.
On 10/21/16 I cancelled my auto insurance account and started a new one with Progressive. On 10/25/16 COUNTRY FINANCIAL charged my account $498.00. I have gotten the run around in regards to my refund. First I was told that the charges would be reversed in 1-2 days. That did not happen. Next I was told I will have a refund sent in the mail in a couple of days. That also not happened. I was also told that they do not track checks that they send out in the mail. Today is Nov. 2, 2016 and I still do not have a refund. Please do not consider COUNTRY FINANCIAL for insurance. They are a FRAUD. I cancelled service and they still took money from my account four days later and have not returned my funds. That is considered thief. What a company. This happened at the Belleville Illinois office.
Been with Country for over 25 years. In that time I filed 3 claims. All my neighbors got 2 new roofs for hail damage in that 25 years from their insurance companies. My roof each time the sand was beat off into my gutters, and whirly birds dented to heck. Roofers said hail damage. Called adjusters out both times and the first time would only cover 3 squares, as for my 8 neighbors around me they all got new roofs. The second time sand beat off singles and whirly birds dented to heck. Neighbors all got new roofs from their insurance company. County said manufacture defect. They do not pay claims on your house. Just collect premiums from you. Don't use them. You will be alone when your home is damaged.
After having a homeowners policy and life insurance for 2 years I received a letter saying my insurance will be terminated for nonpayment of a farm bureau fee. Since my insurance is escrowed and everything is paid by the mortgage company, I emailed my agent Brian ** to see what the issue was. After being told my membership was past due and I would need to pay for it plus a reinstatement fee, I said I would pay for the membership, but the $10 reinstatement fee needed to be waived.
Since I was told everything was being escrowed and paying about $2400/year, you would think there would be some understanding and a simple $10 fee wouldn't be charged, but heck no. I was told, by the agent it is not in his control and call the bureau. That is not exactly the customer service I would expect, so after more emails of the basic I don't care attitude from the agent, I terminated my insurance. BTW, I got much better coverage for $20 more per year from another carrier, and that is even before my discount for multi-policy will kick in. In an industry where I can get the same product from multiple people, customer service is huge for me, so hopefully this agent will get better at it for his other clients.
On May 3rd 2015, I had hail damage on my home. 7 of my aluminum clad windows along with 2 sides of vinyl siding were damaged. Mr. Brad ** of Country Financial inspected my home. He stated that they would pay to have the windows RE-CLAD while still installed on my home (Neither I nor 3 professional contractors including the one that Mr. ** scheduled, have ever heard of re-cladding a window in the field!). He then stated that insurance would only pay to replace 1 of the sides of damaged siding even when he knew that the color would not match the original siding, then they were going to use some of the old siding to repair the second damaged side.
I told him that I was not going to let him cheapen the value of my home with such amateurish repairs. Mr. ** tried to get me to accept a check for a little over $2000.00 for the damages. I refused to accept it. My contractor sent an estimate for windows and siding to Mr **. He still refused to replace all of my siding. I then wrote a letter to the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce. During this time my contractor was forced to take other jobs and rescheduled me for later.
Surprisingly on the day I got a response from the Chamber of Commerce I received a letter from Country Financial stating that they had reviewed my policy and the repairs would be covered. Finally in May of 2016, The repairs were complete, but Then Mr. ** sent a letter stating that they would not pay for the dumpster needed to haul away the refuse, and they were closing the claim. In my opinion Country financial is the worst Insurance company I have ever heard of. Mr ** was totally unprofessional and extremely rude and had a superior attitude. My business with them will be ending shortly!!!
Took about 4 months to follow up with a claim. SCOTT ** was the adjuster. Have to say, I've never corresponded with someone as slow and incompetent. I'm surprised he has a career with Country Financial Homeowners Insurance in Alpharetta, GA rating his professionalism. I hope Country Financial Homeowners Insurance does something to improve their overall customer service. Looking at your stars and ratings and being a business owner I would. Probably the first day my company has received a bad review. This is directly to Scott ** at Country Financial Homeowners Insurance.
They were not efficient in communicating with me about very important details with my policy. I had to call them to find out they were cancelling my policy due to changes. I would never recommended them anyone.
They jacked up my bill over $220.00 a year for no reason. They say inflation, I say greed. They said everyone got jacked up, again I say greed. For someone that has never claimed nothing to get an increase is fraud. Inflation is caused by the insurance companies and government that get paid off by insurance companies to do what they want like jack up our bills for no reason. If you are looking for a new insurance, do not stop here! Keep looking! I have not had any claims on home owners and car insurance, as it stands I paid $1800.00 a year for both and now they decided to jack it up $220.00 more. This is so nice since I do everything I can to prevent claims. Corporate greed and fraud.
Does not respond to claims promptly or fairly. Adjuster grossly underestimated repair costs, in fact car cannot be repaired at all. If you use this company, expect to be going to court if you are involved in an accident. They will refuse to pay for damages that you cause if you are found to be at fault.
I have been a customer of Country Financial for 20+ years and have never had a claim. Four months ago, my boyfriend backed into someone in my car. They raised my rates from $648.00 for full coverage to $824.00 for six months. I just cancelled today. GEICO was $564.00 for six months and my deductible is only $250.00 and not $ 500.00, along with better coverage. They even said if I take an online class that they would lower my payment to $511.00. Country Financial is company is the biggest rip-off and they do not care about their customers. I wish I would have changed years ago!!
We have been with Country Financial for over 20 plus yrs. We had a claim concerning our roof and asked the claim rep to look over the entire roof. There have been storms in our area and we called in a claim to view the roof. From the claims reps that visited our home they all said "Your roof is fine and will last another 10 yrs." Then we received a letter from Country Financial saying that they are sending out a professional roof inspector to view our roof and we did not need to be at home. Later we got a letter in the mail stating that Country Financial would not be insuring our roof because it needed replaced. What kind of crap is that! I called our agent and he said this was the companies doing and out of his hands.
So in other words Country Financial is saying that we (the homeowners) damaged our roof. Our roof was damaged due to the storms and hail we had in our state and mostly everyone on our street was getting their roof replace because of that so Country Financial is saying the storm and hail just passed over our home. We've had our cars, life and homeowners insured by Country Financial and very little claims in 20 plus years. This is so unfair and if anyone finds out about a lawsuit against this issue please contact me.
