Lending Philosophy

Our main objective is to meet the borrowing needs of our members. Past credit history, ability to repay, work history, outstanding obligations, and acceptable security are the primary factors our loan officers review when approving your loan.

Protect Your Loan

The Member’s Choice Borrower Security Program from Widget Financial 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. This program includes simple eligibility requirements to ease the enrollment process.

Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP)

Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) is a great way to protect your finances if the value of your vehicle is less than the amount of your car loan. A good rule of thumb is to assume your new vehicle will depreciate more than 20% after the first year you own it, half of which occurs the minute you drive it off the lot.* This leaves a gap between what you owe on your loan and the value of your vehicle if it’s deemed a total loss due to an accident or theft. Our GAP program may reduce or eliminate the gap between what your vehicle insurance will pay and what you owe on your loan. Plus, it helps you get into your next vehicle by reducing your loan at the credit union by $1,000.

*Car Depreciation: How Much Value Will a New Car Lose? CARFAX, Nov 9, 2018. 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 you have with us. Certain eligibility requirements, conditions, and exclusions may apply. You will receive the contract before you are required to pay for GAP. You should carefully read the contract for a full explanation of the terms. If you choose GAP, adding the GAP fee to your loan amount will increase the cost of GAP. You may cancel GAP at any time. If you cancel GAP within 90 days you will receive a full refund of any fee paid. GAP purchased from state chartered credit unions in FL, GA, IA, RI, UT, VT, and WI, may be with or without a refund provision. Prices of the refundable and non-refundable products are likely to differ. If you choose a refundable product, you may cancel at any time during the loan and receive a refund of the unearned fee. GAP purchased from state chartered credit unions in CO, MO, or SC may be canceled at any time during the loan and receive a refund of the unearned fee. GAP purchased from state chartered credit unions in IN may be with or without a refund provision. If the credit union offers a refund provision, you may cancel at any time during the loan and receive a refund of the unearned fee. GAP-2454900.1-0319-0421© CUNA Mutual Group, 2019.
