The miles can add up but the repair costs don’t have to!
MEMBER’S CHOICE® Mechanical Repair Coverage can help deflect some risk of costly repairs keeping your vehicle running extra miles and extra years. With different coverage levels and deductibles to choose, there’s a plan to fit your family’s budget.
Whether you depend on your vehicle for work or getting your family to school and activities, you need transportation that’s safe and reliable. The older your vehicle, the more it takes to keep it in good working order. Not making small repairs can lead to even more expensive repairs and ignoring other repairs can be dangerous.

- Rental reimbursement: up to $35 per day for 5 days (or 10 days for a parts delay) from day one.
- 24-hour emergency roadside assistance: up to $100 per occurrence. Includes towing, battery jump start, fluid delivery, flat tire assistance and lock-out service.
- Travel expense reimbursement: up to $500 for lodging, food and rental expense when a covered breakdown occurs more than 100 miles from home.
- Transferable: if you sell your vehicle privately, the coverage can be transferred for a fee, adding resale value and appeal.
- Cancelable: receive a full refund within the first 60 days or a pro-rated refund thereafter less an administrative fee.
- No out of pocket expense at time of mechanical repair: (except for any deductible and any repairs not covered by the policy)–the covered repair is paid directly to the authorized repair facility by the plan.

Guaranteed Asset Protection
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.

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?
- 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.
