GAP Coverage helps avoid the situation where someone’s car is totaled or stolen and their insurance coverage doesn’t cover the full cost.

Many insurance companies only pay the ‘Actual Cash Value’ of the vehicle. In most cases, this doesn’t equate to the loan balance, and the borrower is left paying the difference.

To protect members from this unpleasant situation, we’ve partnered with Allied Solutions to offer an inexpensive solution. Named Guaranteed Asset Protection Insurance (GAP), our GAP program waives the difference between your primary insurance company’s settlement and your Unitus auto loan balance, meaning less delinquent payments and fees, refundable service warranty contracts and other insurance related charges.

GAP is offered to members for a low one-time fee and is good for the life of your loan. If for any reason you are unsatisfied with this coverage, you can cancel the protection and receive a full refund during the first 60 days.

To make your decision even easier, we offer several payment options. You can add the premium to your auto loan (which will increase the payment accordingly), write us a check, or transfer the full amount from your Unitus savings or checking account.
