What is GAP Protection?
No one wants to imagine the worst. However, if your vehicle is totaled or stolen, your primary insurance coverage might not be enough to fully pay off the loan. In other words, your insurance settlement may be less than the outstanding loan balance. This creates a deficiency loan balance or a “gap,” resulting in financial hardship. That’s why we offer our members GAP Protection. This GAP coverage can relieve you of the loan balance not covered by your primary insurance.

What does GAP cover?
GAP covers the difference between your outstanding balance and the actual cash value of the vehicle, less exclusions. A primary insurance company will typically settle for the vehicle’s cash value. For example, your car’s cash value is $18,000 but you owe $21,000 on the loan. If you have GAP coverage, the $3,000 difference is covered. GAP also has Deductible Assistance which refunds up to $1000 of your primary insurance deductible per incident.
GAP Advantage Benefit
If your vehicle gets totaled during the life of the loan, we will still be here to support you. We offer $1,000 towards the purchase of a replacement vehicle. If you’re eligible, just finance your new vehicle with Deseret First within 120 days of the insurance settlement and your new loan will be paid down by the $1,000 benefit. GAP Plus is available even if your insurance settlement pays off your loan.
