GAP Insurance (Guaranteed asset protection)

Insurance settlements may not always cover your vehicle loss-What can you do?

What is GAP?

If a vehicle is totaled or stolen, the borrower's primary insurance company settlement can be significantly less than the outstanding loan balance. This may create a deficiency balance or a 'gap' resulting in a serious financial hardship for the borrower. The 'gap' may even jeopardize repayment of the loan. GAP is designed to relieve the borrower of the responsibility for the remainder of the loan balance that the primary insurance carrier does not cover.

Borrower Benefits:

Low cost protection with a 60 day free look

Eliminates the out-of-pocket expense for the remaining loan balance after loss settlement

Helps the borrower avoid financial hardship and afford a replacement vehicle

Prevents deficiency balance from being added to a new loan

Helps protect the borrower's credit rating
