Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Waiver

If your vehicle were to be totaled by accident or stolen, your insurance company would typically pay the actual cash value. That may be less than its actual retail value. It is often considerably less than the actual amount you still owe on your loan. GAP can provide valuable protection during the early years of your car's life if you have a loan.

If a protected loss occurs, GAP may cancel the difference between your primary insurance settlement and the current outstanding balance on your loan. GAP is designed to protect your vehicle loan. It may also protect your vehicle insurance deductible as part of the GAP amount.

GAP through Firelands Federal Credit Union may also provide you with $1000.00 toward the purchase of your next vehicle if you have a total loss and finance your new vehicle with us within 120 days after your primary insurance company issues a settlement check. This $1000.00 would make a great down payment wouldn’t it?

The best part is that we sell GAP at a very competitive price. It 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 totaled. If you are interested in adding GAP, please call the credit union and tell us you would like to speak to a loan officer about our GAP waiver. 

Your purchase of MEMBER’S CHOICE® Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) is optional and will not affect your application for credit or the terms of any credit agreement you have with Us. Certain eligibility requirements, conditions, and exclusions may apply. You will receive the contract before you are required to pay for GAP. You should carefully read the contract for a full explanation of the terms. If you choose GAP, adding the GAP fee to your loan amount will increase the cost of GAP. You may cancel GAP at any time. If you cancel GAP within 90 days you will receive a full refund of any fee paid. GAP-1618050.1-1016-1118.
