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 $350 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.
