GAP Insurance

Covers What Your Car Insurance May Not.

If your new vehicle is totaled or stolen, your primary insurance will usually pay the current market value of your vehicle, less your deductible. If the actual cash value is less than your current loan amount, the result could be a financial gap where you must pay the difference between your loan balance and your insurance settlement. This could mean thousands of dollars out of your pocket. Help eliminate this possible out-of-pocket burden with GAP Insurance!

GAP Insurance Perks and Benefits

Your new car becomes a used car as soon as you drive it off the lot. If the value of your car is less than the balance of your auto loan, you’re “upside down” and there's a gap that isn’t covered by standard auto insurance. Peach State’s Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Coverage helps ensure peace of mind that you won't continue to owe for a vehicle you can’t drive.

  • Flexible Cover your auto, motorcycle, truck, watercraft, or RV.
  • Affordable Pay a one-time premium that may be paid in full or financed along with your vehicle.
  • Peace of Mind Know you have financial help if your vehicle becomes totaled or stolen.
  • Added Benefit Coverage also includes a $1,000 Auto Deductible Reimbursement.1

Limitations and exclusions may apply. GAP Insurance products are not products of the credit union and are not obligations of or guaranteed by the credit union. GAP Insurance is offered through Assurance Plus Claims. The credit union makes no representations as to the services of any provider. For details about coverage and costs, please visit one of our convenient branch locations or contact us.

1 The Auto Deductible Reimbursement will pay up to $1,000 per loss (unlimited losses per year) when a loss is filed and paid by your auto insurance company for a covered auto that you own or lease as evidenced by the title, registration or loan document. It insures your auto under an Auto Insurance Policy designating you as the named insured. Filing your claim is simple and easy – just call 877.296.4892 or visit Assurance Plus Claims to get started!

Do You Need Gap Insurance?

A vehicle starts depreciating as soon as you buy it, but never more than when you drive it off the lot – turning it from a "new" vehicle to a "used" vehicle.

To estimate the anticipated depreciation and potential GAP risk, please contact Peach State and ask to receive a GAP Risk Illustration through the VisualGAP system.
