Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP)

Now you can protect your vehicle investment with Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP). GAP is not an insurance plan. Rather, it offers protection against financial loss if your vehicle is stolen or damaged beyond repair. GAP is available to individuals who have financed their vehicle(s) with a loan from EECU.

GAP waives the difference between your primary carrier insurance settlement and the payoff of your loan or lease, less delinquent payments, late charges, refundable service warranty contracts, and other insurance related charges. Included in this difference is your insurance deductible, which is limited to $1,000.**

Here's how GAP works. Let's say after one year, the vehicle you purchased for $25,000 is valued at just $16,000. You still owe $20,000 when it is stolen and never recovered or is involved in an accident in which it is damaged beyond repair. Most insurance policies will only reimburse you for the value of your vehicle, $16,000, leaving you to repay the remaining loan balance of $4,000. GAP provides for the waiver of that $4,000 for you, including your insurance policy deductible, up to $1,000.** Plus, GAP Advantage provides you with an additional $1,000 toward the financing or leasing of a replacement vehicle when financed with EECU.

What's the cost for this valuable level of protection? Just $199.00 for eligible new and used vehicles and motorcycles. GAP is also available on RVs, boats, and travel trailers; the fee is determined by the balance of the loan. A small price to pay for real peace of mind.

This is general information only. Please refer to your actual waiver certificate for terms, conditions, coverage, limitations, and restrictions. GAP does not replace or eliminate the need for vehicle insurance coverage.

GAP is provided by EECU. GAP is not an obligation of EECU or guaranteed by EECU, even though an EECU employee may assist you with GAP and EECU loan proceeds may be used to pay for GAP. Any disputes regarding the GAP waiver must be resolved between the EECU member and EECU and/or the GAP waiver carrier.

**Deductible waiver is available in most, but not all states. Please consult your financing representative for the availability of this benefit.
