Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP)
If you totaled your car today, would you have to continue making payments on it? It’s entirely possible! Insurance would cover a lot, but most likely not all of the loan amount because of dramatic depreciation on new and late model automobiles. Unfortunately, this scenario happens a lot when there is a car accident, and it leaves people “upside down,” or owing more on their car than it is worth.
GAP insurance kicks in when the amount your insurer would pay for your totaled or stolen car, is less than what you still owe on the loan (minus any delinquent payments, late charges, refundable service warranty contracts or other insurance related charges). Not only does it cover the remainder of your loan balance, it will also give you $1,000 toward a new car financed at Linn Area Credit Union within 90 days of the accident. GAP also covers your insurance deductible, up to a maximum of $1,000.
We usually recommend GAP in any of the following instances:
- You’re financing for more than 4 years (48 months)
- You’re purchasing a car and not putting at least 20% down
- You are rolling debt from your last auto loan into your current auto loan
You can add GAP to an existing car loan or you can get it the same time you get your loan. We’ve had many members sing the praises of GAP insurance!
Extended Auto Warranty Coverage / Mechanical Breakdown Insurance
Purchasing a new or used vehicle can be a big investment. Mechanical breakdown isn’t the first thing you think about when buying a vehicle, but you should consider it. Mechanical breakdowns can happen anywhere, at any time no matter the make, model or year of your car.
Are you financially prepared for a breakdown? Any mechanical breakdown can be costly. Not only do you have to pay for the repairs to your vehicle, but you may have to cover the costs of a tow truck to take your vehicle to the nearest repair shop and a rental car while your vehicle’s in the shop. All of these things add up quickly, especially on top of an already big repair bill.
So, what can you do to protect your investment? Linn Area Credit Union, in partnership with Route 66 Warranty, offers the finest protection available for new and used vehicles. Similar coverage through an auto retailer can cost you over 50% more.
Accident Insurance (AD&D)
Joining our credit union makes you a part of our family. And, we protect our family members with $2,000 Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance coverage – at no cost to you. All you have to do is complete the enrollment form. Request an AD&D enrollment form and policy details by (contacting us).
Credit Life Insurance
It’s important to have an adequate amount of life insurance to protect your home and family if you can’t be there for them. If you pass away during the period of a loan, Credit Life Insurance will pay off or reduce the insured balanced on your loan. When you apply for a loan, ask your financial counselor how little it will cost to add Credit Life Insurance coverage to your loan.
Credit Disability Insurance
Credit Disability Insurance takes over your loan payments (up to the contract limit) if you should become ill or disabled and will continue to make payments until you return to work. When you apply for a loan ask to see how much this coverage affects your monthly payment.
