Payment Protection

GAP Plus

A wrecked vehicle can wreck your finances if you owe more on your loan than your insurance will pay. GAP Plus is like an airbag for your vehicle. 

Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Plus can help fill the gap between what your vehicle insurance will pay and what you owe on your loan, to cushion you against sudden out of pocket expenses if your vehicle is deemed a total loss. GAP Plus may cancel part of your next loan with your credit union, when you purchase a replacement vehicle. GAP Plus can help lighten the financial burden for you and the people you care about.

All of this coverage is available for a one-time premium of $405.00.
