GAP Plan Details

For many drivers, a standard comprehensive and collision auto insurance policy provides only enough protection to cover the actual cash value of a vehicle when it’s damaged or stolen — and that most likely won’t be the full amount you owe on your finance agreement. You are still responsible for paying the amount remaining on the finance agreement.

However, if you have a GAP Plan, the lender may waive some or all of the remaining balance that you owe on your finance agreement. The waiver amount is calculated according to the terms of the GAP Plan.

The GAP Plan is a GAP waiver and is designed to potentially waive the difference between what you owe on your finance agreement and the insurance settlement amounts available to you relating to the total loss of your vehicle. Subject to the terms of your GAP Plan, including specific limitations and exclusions. You will be responsible for any amounts not waived. Please refer to your GAP Plan for specific details.

Gap is not insurance. GAP is an optional, add-on product and is not required for you to obtain financing for the purchase or lease of a vehicle.

Things not included in the gap waiver amount:

• Reduction in insurance company’s payment due to your vehicle’s condition

• Prior damages

• Towing

Your GAP agreement is part of your original contract with your original lender. If you refinance your Finance Contract, your GAP agreement terminates. You should consider contacting your selling dealer to request that your GAP agreement be cancelled as of your refinance date. You may be entitled to a prorated refund.

Yes, your GAP waiver is limited to the lesser of $50,000 or the amount actually owed on your retail installment sales contract/lease agreement at the date of loss.

You can still file a GAP claim even if you didn’t have insurance as of the date of your total loss. However, you must notify TASA of your GAP claim within ninety (90) days of the loss.

Although GAP does not have a deductible, your auto insurance policy may have a deductible which will impact your GAP waiver.
