GAP Waiver Protection

GAP Waiver provides supplemental protection to a borrower’s primary insurance and is designed to help borrowers avoid financial loss in the event of total loss or unrecovered theft. The difference between the loan/lease net payoff amount and the actual cash value (ACV) paid by the primary insurance settlement produces a deficiency balance or “gap.” This remaining loan/lease balance is covered (or waived) with GAP protection.


Additional Benefits of GAP Waiver Protection:
