Protect your financial future from the unexpected with plans that keep you covered

Debt Protection

When life throws you a curveball, your loan is probably the last thing you want to think about. Something unexpected, like injury or job loss, can impact your ability to keep up your regular loan payments. That’s where Debt Protection steps in. When you’re protected, your Debt Protection plan can cover your monthly loan payments, or even cancel out your loan balance entirely in the event of financial hardship. 

We have plan options that can protect you in the event of: 

  • Checkmark-Shield-2


  • Checkmark-Shield-2

    Involuntary Unemployment

Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP)

Imagine you buy a new car. You’re happy and excited, until the unexpected happens: your car gets totaled in an accident or stolen by thieves. You file a claim with your insurance company, but they only pay you the current market value of your car, which could be much lower than what you owe on your loan. You’re left with a gap between what you received from your insurance payout and what you still have to pay.  

That’s where GAP protection comes in. GAP protection pays off the difference between your insurance settlement and your loan balance in case of a total loss or theft. It’s the smart way to protect your financial peace of mind and avoid paying out of your own pocket when the unexpected happens.  

Mechanical Breakdown Protection (MBP) 

Protection beyond the warranty

 A sudden mechanical failure can set you back thousands, and if your vehicle is no longer under warranty you could be footing the bill out of pocket. Mechanical Breakdown Protection steps in when a covered component fails. MBP also provides:

  • 24 hour emergency roadside service
  • Towing and rental car allowance
  • Choose your own repair shop – take your vehicle to any licensed repair facility
  • Zero deductible options

Depreciation Protection (DPW)

  • Coverage for the life of your loan
  • No mileage, make or year restrictions
  • Locks in value of vehicle at time of funding
