Protect Your New Vehicle
Get the Right Insurance Coverage
We can help you get a great deal on auto insurance with Firefighter Insurance Services (FIS)3.
Looking for extra protection? We offer 3 programs to keep you and your family protected.
Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP coverage) covers the difference between your primary carrier insurance settlement and the payoff of your loan, less delinquent payments, late charges, refundable service warranty contracts, and other insurance related charges.
For example, let's say the car you purchased for $25,000 is valued at only $16,000. The amount you owe is $21,000 when it is stolen and never recovered or is involved in an accident in which it is damaged beyond repair, most insurance policies will only reimburse you for the value of your vehicle ($16,000), leaving you to repay the remaining loan balance ($5,000). With the GAP coverage, the remaining loan balance ($5,000) is taken care of for you, including your insurance policy deductible, up to $1,000 (up to 150% of the value).
Debt Protection cancels your loan balance (up to the contract limits) in the event of death or cancels your monthly loan payment (up to contract limits) in the event you are unable to go to work due to an accident or illness. You select the optional plan that fits your family’s financial needs. There are several options for protection on your loans.
SAFEGUARD YOUR FAMILY
There is a wide range of unexpected events that could leave you and your family scrambling to pay monthly bills. Whatever the reason, you wouldn’t want your family to worry about making loan payments in the event of death or disability. With Debt Protection, your loan balance may be canceled or your monthly loan payments canceled without penalty or added interest. You benefit from knowing that your family is protected.
Debt Protection options:
- In the event of death, your remaining outstanding loan balance may be canceled up to the maximum in the contract.
- If you become disabled, your monthly loan payments may be canceled up to a maximum number of loan payments based on the contract.
Give your family time to get back on their feet financially.
