When you have a loan with Honor Credit Union, not only are you receiving excellent member service and a great rate, but also the peace of mind that comes with our loan protection options.
Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Insurance can help you be prepared for these things when your normal insurance policy may not completely cover what you owe. If your vehicle gets wrecked or stolen, GAP Insurance will pay the difference between what your insurance company is willing to pay and what you actually owe on the vehicle.
Depreciation Protection (DPW) is similar to GAP, but instead of protecting you against loan deficiency balances in the event of a total loss of your vehicle, it protects the equity you have in your vehicle. If you put a lot of money down on your vehicle when you purchased it, or you received a high value on a trade-in putting your loan amount well under the value of your vehicle, DPW protects that investment.
We have various SafetyNet packages available to protect your loan, family, collateral, and credit rating against the possibility you may no longer be able to pay it. In that unfortunate situation, you would have enough to focus on, so let SafetyNet help. If you choose to take advantage of SafetyNet, the fee for this program will be included in your monthly payments.
Mechanical Breakdown Protection (MBP) offers nationwide protections, 24-hour roadside assistance, rental vehicle assistance, trip interruption coverage, and so much more, so that if your car breaks down your life doesn’t have to break down, too. Plus it’s all transferable in case you sell your vehicle before the agreement expires.
We know that life take can take unexpected turns you just can’t budget for, from employment changes to medical emergencies. We want to be by your side throughout your journey, good or bad, so we have several payment assistance options to help you when times get tough.
Holiday shopping, unexpected life events, and other personal situations can leave your account balance a little short when it’s time to make a loan payment. Our Skip-A-Pay program helps you navigate those times.
Our financial wellness partner at GreenPath Financial will work with you on-on-one to evaluate your situation, put a budget in place, establish a payment plan, and help you get back to achieving your financial goals!
