When you’re facing an unexpected life event, the last thing you need is added financial stress. That’s why we offer several loan protection options to help you pay or postpone your debt in case of a sudden setback. Our options include:
Member’s Choice Borrower Security*
This voluntary loan payment protection option offers relief from the financial burden of delinquency, default, or foreclosure in certain situations. ACU will cancel or reduce repayment of your loan debt if a protected life event happens to you as a borrower or co-borrower. Protected events include loss of life or disability (including those caused by acts of war) and involuntary unemployment.
*Your purchase of Debt Protection is optional and will not affect your application for credit or the terms of any credit agreement required to obtain a loan. Certain eligibility requirements, conditions, and exclusions may apply. Please contact ACU for a full explanation of the terms of Debt Protection.
Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP)
GAP covers the balance on your loan in the event of a total loss of your vehicle. This is important because most insurance policies only pay the cash value of the vehicle at the time of the loss, which includes depreciation. So your remaining loan balance could be much greater than the insurance check you receive for your damaged vehicle — yet you would still be responsible for paying the entire loan amount. In this case, your GAP option would cover that balance difference for you.
Major Mechanical Protection (MMP)
MMP provides protection against mechanical breakdowns above and beyond the original manufacturer’s warranty. This protects your investment and provides peace of mind by reducing the possibility of out-of-pocket expenses when your vehicle has an unexpected mechanical issue.
