To protect your vehicle with GAP, there is a one-time fee of $350, which includes the GAP Advantage Benefit of $1,000 to be used toward a replacement vehicle, if your vehicle is a total loss, and you purchase a new vehicle within 90 days that is financed with Benchmark Federal Credit Union. Auto Deductible Reimbursement (ADR) is also included with the purchase of GAP. ADR will reimburse up to $500 per loss for three years. All vehicles the primary borrower owns and insures are also included in the coverage (some restrictions apply).

And, simple eligibility requirements do help ease the enrollment process.
