Protect your investment and your wallet

Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) can protect your family, your vehicle and your credit rating
If your vehicle is declared a total loss, your auto insurance settlement may not cover the full balance of your loan. A GAP policy can pay off the difference between your primary insurer's settlement and the loan balance, plus give you $1000 toward the purchase of your next vehicle when financed with OUCU.

Coverage also includes Auto Deductible Reimbursement (ADR). ADR will pay you back, up to $500, when you file a claim on your comprehensive or collision auto insurance coverage.
The claim must exceed your primary insurance deductible amount on a vehicle that is registered in the name of the GAP holder and covered by the GAP holder’s insurance. This coverage can reduce or eliminate your out-of-pocket expense if you need to file an insurance claim, and help you get back on the road.

GAP coverage is also available for power-sports vehicles, watercraft and recreational vehicles.
