I cannot say enough about how happy I am with your service. My agent was superb and got me a one year policy at a fixed low price so I no longer have to watch for payment increases that always happened with the other companies I have used in the past. I know I have a true advocate who's efforts are on MY behalf! I am a customer for life and always recommend you to friends and aquanitences.

Most Critical Review

By
Foremost Signature provides a great value if you measure a company only by their premiums. Unfortunately, after setting up a home, auto, and umbrella policy with them, they failed to START my home and auto policy. My umbrella policy, however, went through. A month after I started my policies, I received a notice saying that my umbrella policy was being cancelled since I didn't have home or auto through them. Fortunately I had not yet cancelled my existing insurance since I was waiting for ID cards from Foremost Signature which never arrived, otherwise I would have ended up being uninsured during this time. I called Foremost Signature to discuss the situation. My call was answered quickly by a friendly representative. She could see that these policies existed, but she couldn't determine anything beyond that. She offered to transfer me to sales where I could then set up another policy. I refused her offer as 1) I went through an excellent agent at Answer and I wanted him to get credit for the policy, and 2) I felt that any additional time spent with Foremost Signature was a waste. If they can't figure out how to start a policy, I have absolutely zero faith in them to be able to pay me in the event of a claim. Unfortunately, my employer uses Foremost Signature for dental insurance. They have a tendency to deny claims, and I've encountered that first hand. I complained about this to my dentist once, and I learned that this is par for the course. At the end of the day, I believe I dodged a bullet. If a company can't determine whether or not you have a policy with them when , why should I expect them to be able to pay out if the need arises? Stay away from the train wreck that is Foremost Signature.

I have had this insurance for maybe 6 mos and i will be cancelling at the end of the month and go with the Hartford. Customer service, u call and u hear a child screaming. I could not understand the lady i spoke with My billing is so messed up, i am constantly locked out of my account, and when i do, u get this warning that their system was hacked, my automatic payments for some reason would not go thru, i get a letter stating they have cancelled my insurance and notifying the lender. I finally after 4 calls got online, edited my billing info, and ALAS!!! it happened again. I call again, get a temp password to get onto my account and then it wont let me change my password and obce again i am locked out I give up.

Foremost Signature canceled my policy after I paid what was requested online before the cancellation date.

Customer service is terrible. I had a no fault claim. They refused to pay for my car rental although I have rental car coverage. They were slow to respond, It was a nightmare! It was the worst experience with an auto insurance company. Guess you get what you pay for.

I've had no interaction with Met Life because I've had no accidents or traffic tickets. I've been surprised occasionally when Met Life has increased my premium by 50 cents or so per month without giving me advance notice. I subtract my automatically withdrawn monthly payment in my checkbook and have to make adjustments when my statement comes in.

Methodology

The car insurance quotes displayed are based on an analysis of Insurify’s database of over 40 million quotes from 500 ZIP codes nationwide. To obtain representative rates, Insurify’s data science team performs frequent comprehensive analyses of the factors car insurance providers weigh to calculate rates including driver demographics, driving record, credit score, desired coverage level, and more.

Insurify’s analysis also incorporates the Insurify Composite Score (ICS) assigned to each insurance provider. The ICS is a proprietary rating that weighs multiple factors reflecting the quality, reliability, and health of an insurance company. Ratings used to calculate the ICS include Financial Strength Ratings from A.M. Best, Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s, and Fitch; J.D. Power ratings; Consumer Reports customer satisfaction surveys and customer complaints; mobile app reviews; and user-generated company reviews. 

With the above insights and ranking methods, Insurify is able to offer car insurance shoppers insight into how various insurance providers compare to one another in terms of both cost and quality. Note, actual quotes will vary based on unique attributes including the policyholder’s driver history and their garaging address.
