If your vehicle get stolen and the auto insurance pays the blue book value would the gap insurance cover the rest of the payment on your car loan and what is the limit?
When a car is under lien and stolen/wrecked, the very first payee is ALWAYS the lienholder. You will receive nothing, and the lienholder gets reimbursed for the value of the car. Any outstanding would be your debt. Most insurers make deals with Lienholders to indemnify and lodge up the loan. Not always however. MAKE sure to ask the Insurance company how much was paid to lienholder, and ask for proof too!

Your auto loan accomplished will explain these factors, and tell you exactly what your interest rate will be. .
If you are not sated by the deal you are getting for a 2nd loan on your car, attempt looking for a payday loan.
Does GAP cover an uninsured car?
GAP Coverage .
Yes and no. In order to recover a GAP claim you would most likely have to provide proof of a claim to the dealer. However, you won’t receive any money for the ordinary fact that the insurance paid for the total loss and all GAP indeed does is cover any balance left over. For example, if your car’s worth 15,000 but you owe Legitimate,000, also known as being upside down in a loan, the insurance will only pay up to the market value of the car. So you’re stuck with the remaining Trio,000 dollars. GAP will pay the Trio,000 if you have it. The reason for this is that whether a car’s running or not, totaled or not, you signed that loan contract promising to repay it and unluckily these contracts ARE legally trussing (if they weren’t dealerships would be out of business) so the loan does have to repaid one way or the other. It deep-throats, especially when you total a car or someone totals yours, and even tho’ GAP may have kicked in, you will get zero money unless you somehow get other funds paid to you by the claim. Look on the bright side, you won’t be stuck with a loan balance on a car you can no longer drive either. To keep your cars value up is elementary. Don’t crash it obviously, keep up on the maintenance, take care of the inwards and outside by cleaning and washing it, if you happen to suffer a minor dent or scrape get it eliminated. Also, attempt to own a car that’s commonly bought and usually retains good residual value. This means when you buy a car and by the time you finish with it, you can get a decent price for it when you ultimately sell it.

What is a GAP policy for a car loan?
Gap Insurance will pay the difference inbetween the vehicle value and the loan pay off amount..
For example : you car is valued at $17,000 but the loan amount on the car is $20,000 – if your car is totaled your basic car insurance will only pay up to the car’s value. A GAP Policy will pick up the $Three,000 difference..
Therefore you aren’t making payments on a vehicle that is at atotal loss..
IMO- is a must have!
Is Gap Insurance on cars worthwhile?
GAP insurance may well be worthwhile. GAP insurance is extra car insurance, generally obtained from the dealer that sells the car, that covers the difference inbetween what the insurer pays for a total loss of the car and what may be owing on the car loan. Normally, if a car suffers a total loss, the insurer will pay the actual cash value. This is the value of a vehicle of like, kind and quality, with similar mileage, accessories, in similar conditon; the actual cash value is calculated for the same general geographic area as the insured vehicle. Because the amount owing on the loan may be more than what the car is worth, GAP insurance pays the difference. rather than the insured being responsible for paying it to the lender. Naturally, if you paid in total for the car upon purchase, you do not need GAP coverage. Likewise, once you pay off the car loan, GAP coverage may be canceled.

Can your medical insurance expect you to cover the entire amount due because they filed the claim Two yrs late and the insurance will not consider the claim?
Well at fault here is the facility where you had the medical care. There is a timely filing period that most insurances have from 30days up to Two years. The insurance department at the medical faclilit should know those timely filing thresholds for each insurance company. So they are at fault and should eat or (write off) the balance as long as you were indeed covered by insurance at this time, and you had given the decent card or insurance info when you received treatment. If not that’s your fault. Always update insurance information when you go in for any type of medical treatment.
Does gap insurance cover the remainder of a loan from a voluntary reposession of a vehicle?

Your car is a total loss and pay off is about half of the amount of your loan you carried some from a prior car will your GAP insurance cover the majority or all of the remaining balance of the loan?
You will need to read your GAP insurance information. Like car insurance each plan is different. Some GAP insurance plans state they will pay 100% of the “resale” value. Others state 125% (meaning the current resale value of your car plus 25% above that). Others state 100% of “trade-in” value..
Bottom line – read the insurance plan document you got from the company, or visit the car dealership you bought the car from and pick up a pamphlet..
Good luck to you!

What if your car repossessed with gap insurance?
The gap insurance is part of your auto loan so I am not sure what your question is. Gap insurance covers your car if you total it and the fair market value for your car is below what you owe. If your car gets reposessed, you still owe the lender. Actually, the cost of the gap insurance is spinned into the loan – it’s not part of the loan. If you can find your original paperwork from when you bought your car, find the information on the company that issued the gap insurance policy, and then call them and tell them you no longer own the car, and see if you can get a partial refund on the premium! Can’t hurt to attempt, right? I do vehicle refinances, and our auto loan contract includes the gap insurance (albeit we call it something else) for free, so I have helped several people cancel their gap coverage, albeit we usually do it pretty early in the loan. Same with credit disability insurance, if you have it.

What does gap auto insurance cover?
Physical harm coverage on an auto policy says that the insurance company has the option of paying to repair, substitute, or pay the actual cash value of the vehicle. In the case where the harm to a vehicle’s cost to repair is more than the ACV of the vehicle the vehicle is totalled and the company will pay the ACV of the vehicle. Sometimes when you buy a fresh vehicle without much or any downpayment you quickly get “upside down” in the loan. As the value of the car depreciates, the loan balance doesn’t fall almost as prompt. For the very first duo of years you owe more than the value of the vehicle. The insurance company has nothing to do with auto loan. GAP insurance was created to cover the difference in the ACV of the vehicle and the loan payoff. You can buy GAP insurance from the finance company or bank that financed the vehicle or from your insurance company. Purchasing from the insurance is much less expensive and you can drop the coverage once the loan balance falls below the value of the vehicle.

GAP coverage is very necessary especially in a lease situation. GAP coverage comes into play if a vehicle is deemed totaled. What GAP does is to pay for the difference in the actual cash value that is payable under the normal policy and the balance owed to the lease company or finance company of a loan. In the early years of a lease or loan the vehicle value falls quicker that the value of the vehicle. If you total the vehicle within this period you can find yourself without a vehicle but with a sizable amount of money due on a vehicle you cannot drive any more. GAP coverage will pay this difference. The Finance Dept of the auto dealership will attempt to sell you on this GAP insurance. Very first, no matter what they say, it is not mandatory to but it from them. Individual Auto insurance companies suggest GAP insurance that does the same thing for about 10% of the premium the dealership charges you for the same coverage. You will also have a right to cancel the coverage whenever you feel the value and loan balance have equaled out. One catch is that you must purchase the GAP coverage from you insurer withing 6 months of purchasing the vehicle. As a matter of utter disclosure, I own and operate a petite Independent Insurance Company in Central Georgia and have for the past 22 years. Prior to that I worked as an agent for a direct writer of insurance for Three years.
