It has been less than two years since Farmer’s bought Met Life’s home and auto insurance service. I know because I was a Met Life customer. Got a very nice discount from Met Life due to being an Entergy Corporation retiree. Farmer’s eliminated the discount at the first renewal under their ownership. Rates went up and a I found another carrier. Seems to me that it was short-sighted of Farmers to acquire another company and now find themselves laying off 2400 employees.
