Loan- Payment Protection

GAP

Get GAP with Deductible Assistance and 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 lose on average 19% the first year you own it, half of which occurs immediately after taking possession.* This leaves a “gap” between what you owe on your loan and the value of your vehicle. In the event of a total loss due to an accident or theft, GAP is designed to cancel the difference between what you owe on your loan and the amount paid by your primary auto insurer. Additionally, GAP policies at First Class Community Credit Union will also cover your first $1,000 towards a replacement vehicle.

John Diether, Cars Direct, May 23, 2016 Disclosure: Your purchase of MEMBER’S CHOICE™ Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP), which includes deductible assistance, 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 purchased from state chartered credit unions in FL, GA, IA, RI, UT, VT, and WI, may be with or without a refund provision. Prices of the refundable and non-refundable products are likely to differ. If you choose a refundable product, you may cancel at any time during the loan and receive a refund of the unearned fee.
