What is CPI/Forced Insurance?

Collateral Protective Insurance (CPI) is a policy taken out by the credit union to protect our interest in the asset you have offered as collateral for a loan. If you fail to provide proof of insurance for your vehicle, we may place insurance coverage on your behalf. Keep in mind that this is NOT legal driving insurance. This insurance only covers the collateral. It will not cover damage to other property, medical expenses, or legal expenses resulting from an accident. Additionally, it is typically more expensive than purchasing your own insurance and will increase your monthly loan payment until you have obtained adequate insurance coverage.


Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP), is a protection obtained by the owner of the vehicle. It is typically purchased at or near the time the vehicle is financed and protects against any deficiency balance resulting from the primary insurer not paying the loan in full in the event of a total loss or unrecovered theft. The CommunityWide FCU GAP product protects up to 125% of MSRP or NADA at time of loan origination.  For example, if the collateral’s MSRP was $10,000 at time of loan closing, you would be protected for an amount financed of up to $12,500 regardless of what the value of your vehicle is on the date of loss. In its simplest form, GAP pays the difference between the loan balance on the date of loss and the Actual Cash Value settlement paid by the primary insurance.

GAP is worth considering for any vehicle loan that does not have equity or is expected to depreciate quickly (high mileage, negative trade equity roll over, financed for an extended term). 

GAP is typically offered at dealerships and is also available for coverage from CommunityWide. Contact us today to check the value on your vehicle and see if GAP would be a valuable addition to your loan!

What is Credit Life/Disability Insurance?

Life and Disability insurance are products offered to help you cover your monthly loan payment in the unfortunate event of a covered injury or death. The premium for this insurance is included in your monthly loan payment and remains in effect until canceled or you are no longer eligible for coverage due to age or other determining factors. Contact us for information on coverage limitations and don't forget to ask about credit life and disability when you sign for your new loan.
