Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP)*
This is the insurance that covers the difference in the balance on a car loan and its declared value, as determined by your primary insurance carrier, in the event that it is damaged beyond repair or stolen and never recovered.
- Optional insurance protection for new or used vehicle loans
- Covers the difference in the balance on a car loan and its declared value, as determined by your primary insurance carrier, in the event that it is damaged beyond repair or stolen and never recovered.
- GAP is supplemental coverage and does not replace your standard Comprehensive, Collision and Liability coverage, only enhances it.
Why get GAP? No matter how terrific a car is, the minute you drive it out of the show room, its value decreases. Depending on where you live and how much you financed, the established market value may be less than the actual balance you owe on your car. With GAP, if your car is totaled or stolen, the deficiency will be covered. That includes the difference between your primary carrier's insurance settlement and the payoff of your loan, less delinquent payments, late charges, refundable service warranties, and other insurance related charges. Included in the GAP payment is your primary insurance deductible, which is covered up to $1,000 if a deficiency exists. In addition, you are eligible for an additional $1,000 towards the purchase of a replacement vehicle financed through the credit union.
Consider: You buy a car. The loan balance after one year is $15,000. The market value is $11,000. Your insurance deductible is $1,000. You total the car, and your insurance company pays $10,000. That leaves a difference of $5,000. That is $5,000 you would have to pay for a car you no longer possess. With GAP, that $5,000 is paid.
The one-time charge for GAP is $295 per vehicle.
