Auto Loan Insurance

While auto loan insurance doesn’t cover basic wear and tear on your vehicle, it is a necessary precaution to help you in the event of an accident resulting in either damage to your or another’s vehicle, or injury to anyone involved. Without insurance, you would be on your own to cover the financial costs out-of-pocket, which can often total thousands of dollars. At Gulf Coast Educators Insurance Services, we can help you get the best insurance coverage for the lowest cost.

Disclosure: Insurance offered through Gulf Coast Educators Insurance Services, LLC. Funds should not be considered a deposit or guaranteed by Gulf Coast Educators Federal Credit Union. Funds are not insured by the NCUA or any federal government agency.

GAP insurance may not cover skipped payments.
