Gap Coverage

Do you have a financed car, truck, or SUV? Did you know that if it its ever totaled or stolen, YOU COULD FACE A FINANCIAL RISK that your auto insurance policy may not cover? Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) coverage protects you against this risk!

Gap* is a policy that protects you in the event of theft or total loss of your vehicle.  Most insurance companies only pay the Cash Value of the vehicle at the time of the loss. Your remaining loan balance could be much greater than the Cash Value of your vehicle creating a DEFICIENCY OF SEVERAL THOUSAND DOLLARS THAT YOU’RE LIABLE FOR!

Plus, if you compare our $250 cost to what dealers charge, you won’t believe the savings at your credit union!

Why buy GAP* from the Credit Union?
Compare cost at dealer and save hundreds of dollars.
GAP* is Easy to Purchase
GAP* can be purchase at a low, onetime cost and can be included in the amount financed with the loan. Coverage takes effect immediately upon loan dispersal.
60-Day Free Look
You may examine your GAP* policy for 60 days. If you are not satisfied you may cancel GAP by returning the waiver within the first 60 days of coverage for a full refund of any premiums or amount you have paid.
Covers Primary Insurance Deductible
GAP* covers the owner’s primary insurance deductible up to $1,000.00. This results in another reduced financial burden associated with a vehicle being stolen or totaled, and is one more way in which GAP provides peace-of-mind.

Suppose after one year you experience a total loss on your vehicle…
Loan balance after one year: $20.000.00
Insurance settlement covering vehicle’s current value: $16,000.00
Your lost investment without GAP…
Your remaining unpaid loan balance; the “GAP” (including your deductible, up to $1,000)** : $4,000.00
GAP pays the following toward the financing or leasing of a replacement vehicle…
GAP pays the difference: $4,000.00
