GAP Coverage


Protect your auto investment

What is GAP Insurance?


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 automobile loss 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.

If you’re eligible, just finance your new vehicle with Deseret First within 90 days of the loss and your loan will be paid down by the $1,000 benefit.
