American Assurance, May 20, 2021
Attorney General Phil Weiser today announced that his office secured $121,983 in refunds for 171 Colorado vehicle owners who did not receive their full GAP benefits from a Colorado company.
Guaranteed automobile protection (GAP) is an optional benefit offered to car buyers who finance their purchase. If a buyer’s car is totaled in an accident, the buyer’s auto insurance typically pays only the fair market value of the car, which can be less than the amount owed on the buyer’s loan. GAP applies in that situation to cancel, or pay off, the remaining balance owed on the loan.
