Farmers: lowest premium

The average annual homeowners insurance premium in Oklahoma is $2,058 a year. Farmers' homeowners insurance premium comes in at $1,110, or 53% below the state average.

In J.D. Power's 2018 U.S. home insurance study, Farmers ranked ninth for overall customer satisfaction and got three out of five stars for claims service and settlement. This combination of low premiums and good service makes Farmers a popular choice in Oklahoma.

A Farmers homeowners insurance policy offers some notable benefits for the money. For instance, if you've been claim-free with Farmers or your last homeowners insurer for three years or more, you may earn a discount on your premium. Also, each year your Farmers homeowners insurance policy is active can earn you $50 towards your deductible on a claim.

American Farmers & Ranchers Mutual: runner-up for cheapest rates

American Farmers & Ranchers Mutual's average homeowners insurance premium in Oklahoma is $1,512. Besides having some of the lowest rates in Oklahoma, American Farmers & Ranchers Mutual also offers a wide variety of discounts to policyholders:

  • Depending on how old your house and select systems in it are, you can save up to 30% on your premium.
  • Installing home protection devices such as fire alarms, sprinkler systems or burglar alarms may get you up to 15% in rate discounts.
  • If you have not had a paid loss claim within a specified period of time, you can save upwards of 20% on your premium.

State Farm: most popular

State Farm holds 28% of the Oklahoma homeowners insurance market share, with CSAA holding the second-highest market share of the companies we analyzed, at 4.64%.

J.D. Power gave State Farm four out of five stars for customer satisfaction in its 2019 U.S. home insurance survey. Also, the insurer has a low NAIC Complaint Index score of 0.20. The index measures the number of complaints an insurer receives relative to its size. An index value of 1.0 is the national average, and a lower number indicates better performance. Despite having the third-highest average premium in a state with above-average homeowners insurance rates, State Farm's coverage and overall policyholder satisfaction shows a strong loyalty, despite the price tag.

USAA: best for veterans

Oklahoma is home to nearly 297,000 veterans, comprising almost 7% of the state's population. While USAA has an average homeowners insurance rate of $2,097, above the state average, the insurer continues to be a strong favorite of veterans because of its sole focus on providing coverage to active and retired military members and their families.

J.D. Power awarded USAA one of only three five-out-of-five-star overall satisfaction ratings in its 2019 home insurance study. This shows USAA's strong, consistent dedication to its policyholders. Furthermore, USAA has a low NAIC Complaint Index of 0.31, below the state average of 0.49.

USAA offers discounts that can reduce your homeowners insurance premium. You can save up to 10% on your homeowners insurance premium if you bundle it with auto insurance. Also, if you go five or more years without a homeowners insurance claim, you can get up to another 10% off your premium.

Homeowners insurance perils in Oklahoma

Oklahoma's high homeowners insurance rates largely stem from its location in Tornado Alley, the rising chances of earthquakes and high crime rates compared to the national average.

Tornadoes

Oklahoma sits in the middle of tornado alley. Given the tremendous damage a tornado can do to a home, including total loss, Oklahoma's high homeowners insurance costs reflect the risk. In fact, tornadoes are primarily responsible for the state's skyhigh home insurance rates.

Most homeowners insurance policies cover tornado damage, however, damage mitigation is strongly encouraged. Installing storm windows and door reinforcements, as well as keeping your yard free of items and debris that can turn into projectiles and damage your home during a tornado, may reduce the risk of your home getting damaged.

Flooding

Midwestern states have experienced serious flooding trends. Flood damage isn't covered by standard homeowners insurance, but you can purchase flood insurance from FEMA's National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). NFIP insurance is available through participating insurance companies and some independent insurance providers.

Methodology

We compiled quotes for every ZIP code in Oklahoma from eight of the top insurers. We based our analysis on Allstate, American Farmers & Ranchers, CSAA, Farmers, Liberty Mutual, Oklahoma Farm Bureau, State Farm, Travelers and USAA.

We gathered quotes for a home worth $150,385, built in 1979 and owned by a 57-year-old. These are the median home value, construction date and homeowner age in Oklahoma.

We picked the insurers for our study using S&P Global Market Intelligence, which ensured results as localized to Oklahoma as possible. The largest subsidiary in Oklahoma of every insurer was taken as a representative for the company.
