GAP Insurance

GAP insurance, or Guaranteed Asset Protection insurance, is a type of auto insurance that covers the financial gap between the actual cash value of a vehicle and the outstanding balance on an auto loan or lease. This insurance can be valuable in situations where a car is deemed a total loss after an accident, since it ensures that the policyholder is not left with a financial burden due to negative equity.

How Does GAP Auto Insurance Work?

In the event of a car accident where the vehicle is declared a total loss, the standard auto insurance policy typically covers the vehicle’s actual cash value at the time of the accident. However, the actual cash value may be lower than the remaining balance on the auto loan or lease.

This is where GAP insurance comes into play. It covers the difference between the actual cash value and the amount owed on the vehicle, effectively protecting the policyholder from having to pay out of pocket for the remaining loan or lease balance.

What Are the Benefits of Guaranteed Asset Protection Insurance?

GAP insurance provides several benefits for car owners, especially in no-fault states where personal injury protection insurance focuses on medical expenses rather than property damage.

Some advantages include:

Financial protection

GAP insurance shields policyholders from owing money on a totaled vehicle, reducing financial stress after a car accident.

Coverage of negative equity

If the car’s value depreciates faster than the loan balance decreases, GAP insurance covers the negative equity.

Lease protection

For leased vehicles, GAP insurance can help cover the difference between the lease payoff and the actual cash value.

Do I Still Need to Hire a Lawyer if I Have Insurance?

While GAP insurance primarily addresses property damage, a car accident lawyer can help by investigating an auto accident’s cause and liability.
