Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP)

Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Insurance is a debt waiver that eliminates the out-of-pocket expense incurred should there be a difference between the actual cash value and loan payoff when a vehicle is stolen or totaled. GAP Insurance provides the borrower with an incentive if they were to finance a new vehicle loan if there was a claim. This allows your institution to retain your borrower base.
