This is a voluntary1 loan-payment protection product that may help you get relief from the financial burden of delinquency or default if a qualified protected life event unexpectedly happens to you. And, simple eligibility requirements ease the enrollment process.
If a qualified protected life event happens to you (and you’re a protected borrower or co-borrower on the loan), DebtGuard could cancel or reduce repayment of your loan debt — which could help lessen your worries, and your family’s worries about paying loans during a time when your income may be reduced or lost and paying other bills becomes challenging.
Qualified protected events include involuntary unemployment, disability and loss of life (including those caused by acts of war).
Guaranteed Asset Protection Plus (GAP Plus) with deductible assistance
What is GAP Plus with deductible assistance?
It could be a way to help protect your vehicle loan. Many times, primary auto insurance settlements don’t pay off your loan balance. When you buy a new or used vehicle, there’s no way to know if it will be stolen or totaled in an accident. With GAP Plus with deductible assistance2, you could be protecting your vehicle investment against a possible financial loss.
How does it work?
The GAP fee can be added to your loan or paid separately by cash, check, charge, or possibly electronic funds transfer. If there’s a difference between what you owe on your loan and the value of your vehicle determined by your primary insurance company, GAP Plus with deductible assistance may reduce or eliminate the difference based on the terms of your member agreement. By taking a few simple steps while signing your loan paperwork, you could be helping take responsibility for your financial future. Your loan officer can show you how. You can cancel within 90 days for a full refund.
Why is it valuable?
New and used vehicles often depreciate rapidly and vehicle loans are typically getting longer in terms. There may be a point where you owe more than it’s worth. That’s where GAP Plus with deductible assistance may kick in. GAP Plus with deductible assistance may reduce or eliminate the difference between the primary insurance settlement and what you may still owe. In addition, if your vehicle is stolen or totaled in an accident, it will cancel $1,000 of your next loan with Vantage West when you purchase a replacement vehicle within 120 days of your primary insurance settlement. GAP Plus with deductible assistance may help you prepare for the unexpected.
