Loan Insurance and Protection
Credit Life and/or Disability Insurance
For your protection, optional Credit Life and Credit Disability Insurance* underwritten by CMFG Life Insurance Company is available for MEFCU members. These products are voluntary and are not required to obtain credit.
Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP)
In the first few years of ownership, your loan balance may be higher than the value of your vehicle, especially if you put down a minimal or no down payment.
If your vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and not recovered, the insurance settlement is based on the actual cash value, not the outstanding loan balance. This could create a loan "gap" - money you owe on the loan after the insurance company pays its portion. GAP* may cover the difference between the outstanding loan amount and the actual cash value. This coverage is optional and is not required to obtain a vehicle loan.
