Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP)
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. Now you also get Deductible Assistance with your purchase of GAP. Deductible Assistance is designed to cancel part of your debt when a comprehensive or collision claim is paid and a deductible is incurred. This means you’ll have one less expense you may have to worry about if something happens to your vehicle.
Contact Wailuku Federal Credit Union to learn more about how you can add GAP with Deductible Assistance to your vehicle loan.
