Get GAP with Deductible Assistance and don’t let a wrecked vehicle wreck your finances.
Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) is a great way to protect your finances if the value of your vehicle is less than the amount of your car loan. A good rule of thumb is to assume your new vehicle will depreciate on average 20% the first year you own it, half of which occurs the minute you drive it off the lot.* This leaves a gap between what you owe on your loan and the value of your vehicle if it’s deemed a total loss due to an accident or theft. Our GAP program can help fill the gap between what your vehicle insurance will pay and what you owe on your loan.
Our GAP program includes Deductible Assistance which is designed to provide financial relief when your vehicle is damaged but not deemed a total loss. If repairs cost more than your deductible, the deductible amount is applied to your vehicle loan at the credit union, reducing what you owe.

Certain eligibility requirements, conditions, and exclusions may apply. You will receive the contract before you are required to pay for GAP.

Thinking about taking out a loan to buy a vehicle? You should take steps to protect you and your family in case something unforeseen happens. You’re betting you can pay back your loan and you won’t lose your job (through no fault of your own), or become disabled (due to injury or illness), or need to take family leave, or pass away—which could leave your family responsible for your loan balance.

The miles can add up, but the repair costs don’t have to.
What is MEMBER’S CHOICE® Mechanical Repair Coverage?
It’s hard to anticipate vehicle repair and maintenance. Budgeting for this can be difficult and can tie up funds earmarked for other needs. MEMBER’S CHOICE® Mechanical Repair Coverage (MRC) is a voluntary product that may help pay for repairs on your vehicle, giving your more control to help you keep your car on the road where it should be.
How Does it Work?
If your vehicle breaks down, Mechanical Repair Coverage pays for the cost of covered repair, less any deductible, at any authorized repair facility in the U.S. or Canada. Your loan officer can show you how a few simple steps will help you take more responsibility for your financial future. You can cancel within 60 days for a full refund if the agreement has not been used. Or you can cancel anytime after that for a pro-rated refund less an administrative fee. If at any time you have questions, simply contact us.
Why is it Valuable?
Typically, as the age of your vehicle increases so does the average cost of repairs. That’s why Mechanical Repair Coverage is so valuable. MRC provides rental reimbursement, 24-hour emergency roadside assistance and travel expense reimbursement; in addition, if you sell your vehicle privately, the coverage can be transferred (for a fee).
Be sure to read the Vehicle Service Contract or Insurance Policy which will explain the exact terms, conditions, and exclusions of this voluntary product. Coverage will vary by state. MEMBER’S CHOICE® Mechanical Repair Coverage is administered by Consumer Program Administrators, Inc. in all states except AK and CA, where coverage is administered by Virginia Surety Company, Inc., in WA, where coverage is administered by Automotive Warranty Services, Inc., in FL, LA, OK and WI, where coverage is administered by Automotive Warranty Services of Florida, Inc. (Florida License #60023) and in AZ, where the Obligor and Administrator is Consumer Program Administrators, Inc., all located at 175 West Jackson Blvd., Chicago, Illinois 60604, 1-800-752-6265. This coverage is made available to you by CUNA Mutual Insurance Agency, Inc. In those states where MEMBER’S CHOICE® Mechanical Repair Coverage is offered as insurance (form MCCU-001-MBI) it is underwritten by Virginia Surety Company, Inc.
