GAP (Guaranteed Auto Protection)

Think you're fully covered if your vehicle is stolen or totalled in an accident?....
Think again!


During the first first few years that you own your vehicle, your loan balance can be higher than the actual value of your vehicle as a result of depreciation, resulting in a financial gap between what you owe and what the car is actually worth at that time. In the event your vehicle is deemed a total loss due to an accident or theft, your auto insurance will usually only cover the actual cash value or market value of your vehicle (less your deductible). This leaves you personally responsible for the difference between what you owe and the current market value of the vehicle - which could mean thousands of dollars out of your pocket.



















Guaranteed Auto Protection protects individuals who finance a new or used vehicle who find themselves in situations like this. GAP insurance is a loan deficiency waiver that covers the difference between the actual cash value of your vehicle and the loan balance.


There are so many things to consider when purchasing a vehicle. The last thing you want to worry about is experiencing a total loss in an accident or even a theft. The fact of the matter is it does happen. Statistics show that:


    - The average new car will lose 60% of its value after three years of normal driving

    - One vehicle is stolen in the United States every 24 seconds

    - 18% of vehicles involved in an accident are a total loss

    - Insurance companies report that every year ½ million vehicles are written off as a total loss


GAP can be purchased for:


    - New and used vehicles

    - Boats

    - Campers/Travel Trailers/Motor Homes

    - Motorcycles/ATVs


GAP can be financed in the loan amount when the loan is booked or paid out of pocket.


PLUS, with GAP coverage from Georgia Power Northwest Federal Credit Union, you also receive Auto Deductible Reimbursement (ADR).  ADR pays up to $500 per loss (limit of two losses per year), for up to five years, when a claim is filed and paid with your primary insurance carrier.


Certain exclusions apply. Speak with a credit union loan officer for more information.
