Don’t let a wrecked vehicle wreck your finances.
Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) is a great way to protect your finances if the value of your vehicle is less than the amount of your car loan. A good rule of thumb is to assume your new vehicle will depreciate more than 20% after the first year you own it, half of which occurs the minute you drive it off the lot.* This leaves a gap between what you owe on your loan and the value of your vehicle if it’s deemed a total loss due to an accident or theft. Our GAP program may reduce or eliminate the gap between what your vehicle insurance will pay and what you owe on your loan. Plus, it helps you get into your next vehicle by reducing your loan at the credit union by $1,000.
Contact us today to learn more about adding GAP Plus to your vehicle loan so you can worry less about tomorrow.

Total loss occurrences are at a record high. New or used, depreciation impacts nearly every vehicle on the road today. Developed with the consumer in mind, Depreciation Protection Waiver (DPW) revolutionizes the Total Loss Protection market and provides a new benefit to help protect the “equity” in the auto loan, compared to the “negative equity” protected by Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP). We have a solution to help protect the invested equity and hedge against the negative impact of depreciation upon total loss.
Benefits of Protection:
- Protection for collision or comprehensive total loss, including theft
- Hedges against the negative impact of vehicle depreciation
- Life of loan protection
- No mileage or year restrictions
- 100% Open Enrollment
- Fully refundable for 60-days
- $1,000 Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) benefit included
Ideal for those who:
- Finance 90% LTV or less
- Put money down
- Trade in a vehicle
- Receive manufacturer or dealer rebates
- Negotiate purchase price below MSRP
- Make accelerated loan payments
- Desire peace of mind knowing the money invested in a vehicle could be protected in the event of total loss
Depreciation Protection kicks in if a vehicle is ever totaled or stolen and not recovered at anytime over the life of the loan. It waives some or all of the loan balance in the event of the total loss of the vehicle. The waiver benefit is equal to the difference between the vehicle’s MSRP or retail value at the time of DPW purchase, less the amount of the loan balance at the time of total loss (not to exceed the lesser of the DPW addendum limit or the outstanding loan balance at the time of loss). $5,000 and $10,000 waiver benefits available.
