State Insurance is an insurance company based in New Zealand. As of 2011 "State" serves as a business division of IAG New Zealand Limited, a subsidiary of Insurance Australia Group.


State Insurance was formerly known as the State Insurance Office. Previously it had been known as the State Fire and Accident Office.

The State Insurance Act 1990 repealed the State Insurance Act 1963 and created State Insurance as a State Owned Enterprise.

Their most well known commercials were a mock/parody of the song Break My Stride.

In late 2014, State closed all but one of their branches citing that the reason for doing so is 94% of customers are choosing to conduct their business online or over the phone.[1] The final remaining branch is located in Riccarton, Christchurch and is open due to the specific customer needs in the area surrounding the 2011 Christchurch earthquake.
