Guaranteed Asset Protection

If your car is stolen or declared a total loss, GAP coverage can "fill the gap" between what your insurance pays and what you owe on your loan. Most new vehicles depreciate faster than the balance that is owed on your loan, especially during the first two years of the vehicle’s life. If the unthinkable happens and your vehicle is declared a total loss or unrecovered theft loss, you may be responsible for the difference between the cash value that your insurance company pays for the vehicle and the balance due on your loan.

That’s where GAP (Guaranteed Asset Protection) can kick in. GAP coverage will help cancel the difference between the primary insurance settlement and what you may still owe.

To learn more, please contact your loan officer today at (434) 528-9016 or (800) 335-0069.

Your purchase of MEMBER’S CHOICE Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) is optional and will not affect your application for credit or the terms of any credit agreement required to obtain a loan. Certain eligibility requirements, conditions, and exclusions may apply. Please contact your loan representative, or refer to the Member Agreement for a full explanation of the terms of GAP. If you choose GAP, adding the product fee to your loan amount will increase the cost of GAP. You may cancel the protection at any time. If you cancel protection within 90 days you will receive a full refund of any fee paid. You will receive additional information before you are required to pay the fee for this product.

Payment Protection

Available with all loans from CVFCU, this protection will make your loan payments while you are out of work under a doctor’s care. In case of death, your loan will be paid in full. Choose the coverage that works for your situation:
  • Involuntary Unemployment, Disability and Loss of Life Coverage
  • Disability and Loss of Life Coverage
  • Loss of Life Coverage
The Credit Union will disclose the cost of this voluntary coverage to you. A separate election form which discloses the terms and conditions must be signed for coverage to become effective.
Whether you’re borrowing to make home improvements or buy a vehicle, it can be a financial gamble because…life happens. You’re betting you can pay back your debt and won’t lose your job (due to no fault of your own), become disabled (due to injury or illness), or pass away—leaving your family responsible for your balance.
Payment Protection* is a voluntary loan-payment protection product that helps you get relief from the financial burden of delinquency, default, or foreclosure if a protected life event unexpectedly happens to you. And simple eligibility requirements ease the enrollment process.

If a protected life event happens to you (and you’re a protected borrower or co-borrower on the loan), Payment Protection will cancel or reduce repayment of your loan debt—helping to reduce your worries, and your family’s worries, about paying loans during a time when your income may be reduced or lost and paying other household bills becomes challenging. See your loan officer for complete details.

*Your purchase of Payment Protection is optional and will not affect your application for credit or the terms of any credit agreement required to obtain a loan. Certain eligibility requirements, conditions and exclusions may apply. Please contact your loan representative, or refer to the Member Agreement for a full explanation of the terms of Payment Protection. You may cancel the protection at any time. If you cancel protection within 30 days, you will receive a full refund of any fee paid. DPGAP-0313-230B

If you are a first time home buyer, take time to visit our Resources section for information to help you start the home buying process. Be sure to check out our calculators which will help guide you through some important calculations.

Am I Financially Prepared?

Before you consider buying a home you must be financially ready. Some things you should consider:
  • Have you saved for a down payment – at least 5% of the purchase price of the home?
  • Is your credit record healthy?
  • Can you afford the property taxes?
  • Can you make the monthly mortgage payments?
  • Do you have money set aside for home emergencies such as a new furnace or hot water heater?

Does it Make Sense to Buy?

Be sure to think about your future plans, consider questions such as:
  • How settled am I?
  • Is a job transfer likely?
  • Would I like a change of scenery sometime in the near future?

If you’re not going to be in the same location for the next 3 to 7 years, you may not want to buy a house. After only a few years, you won’t make enough on the house sale to at least break even.

How Much “Home” Can I Afford?

You want to start looking for your dream house but you’re not sure just how much “home” you can afford. That’s where we can help. We can help you calculate what you can afford, explain our mortgage loan options and get you into a house you’ve been dreaming of – while helping to keep the costs well within your budget.

So you’re ready to buy? What do you need for mortgage application?

When applying for a mortgage loan, lenders require several pieces of personal information and documents. To help speed up the process and ensure you are prepared, we have compiled a list of items you’ll need to review and make sure you have ready for your mortgage consultation.
