Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Plus
A wrecked vehicle can wreck your finances. Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Plus can help.
Our GAP program can help cushion you and your family against sudden out-of-pocket expenses and goes beyond traditional GAP protection. Here’s how it works.
GAP Plus can help fill the gap between what your vehicle insurance will pay and what you owe on your loan, if your vehicle is deemed a total loss. Plus, it helps you get into your next vehicle by reducing your next loan at RBFCU by $1,000 or more.
Get GAP Plus today so you can worry a little less about tomorrow.
To add this coverage, contact our Consumer Lending Center at 1-800-580-3300.
Fair market insurance value isn’t always fair. There may be a GAP.
The second you drive your new vehicle off the lot, it drops in value. Up to 20% in one year.1 This creates a gap in coverage. A wrecked vehicle can wreck your finances if you owe more on your loan than your insurance will pay.
Can I still purchase GAP Plus coverage through RBFCU if I apply at the dealership?
Yes, you can contact RBFCU to add GAP Plus within a year of your original contract date. You can either pay out of pocket or have your loan refinanced to add this protection. Some of our Preferred Dealers also sell RBFCU’s GAP Plus coverage, so you can complete the purchase at the same time as you finalize your loan.
I have GAP coverage through another institution. Will it still apply if I refinance?
In most cases you will need to purchase new GAP when refinancing as GAP covers the loan and when you refinance you will now have a new loan. Please check with your current GAP carrier to verify this information.
