The insurance industry recorded a worst-ever combined ratio of $1.12 in 2022, which means for each $1.00 of revenue brought in there was $1.12 of claims (and expenses) paid out. These poor results were the compound effect of several factors. Some of the largest insurance companies reported results like this: State Farm at $1.27, USAA at $1.15, Nationwide at $1.16, and Allstate at $1.13. When claims and expenses outpace revenue by such a large margin, only one thing can happen.
