That’s easy. Purchase your vehicle through our CUDL program, where more than 175 local dealerships can approve your loan for Unitus financing right on the spot! Simply tell your salesman that you’re a Unitus member and they can handle the rest.
Unitus is the lien holder on your vehicle. In the event your vehicle is totaled or stolen, the insurance company will need to send the claim check directly to Unitus to be applied against your loan balance.
Your title can be released within five (5) business day if your payoff is made via payroll deduction, a cashier’s check or transfer from available funds. Otherwise, the title to your vehicle will be released in about ten (10) business days.
GAP Coverage helps you avoid the situation where your car is totaled or stolen, and your insurance coverage doesn’t cover the full cost.
In this situation, many insurance companies only pay the ‘Actual Cash Value’ of the vehicle. In most cases, this doesn’t equate to the loan balance, and you the borrower are left paying the difference.
To protect members from this unpleasant situation, we’ve partnered with Allied Solutions to offer an inexpensive solution. Called Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Insurance, our GAP program waives the difference between your primary insurance company’s settlement and your Unitus auto loan balance. That helps you avoid delinquent payments and fees, refundable service warranty contracts and other insurance-related charges.
GAP is offered to members for a low one-time fee and is good for the life of your loan. If for any reason you are unsatisfied with this coverage, you can cancel the protection and receive a full refund any time during the first 60 days.
To support you financially, we offer several payment options. You can add the premium to your auto loan (which will increase the payment accordingly), write us a check, or transfer the full amount from your Unitus savings or checking account.

If you have a vehicle loan with Unitus, you are required to maintain full coverage insurance at all times, with a maximum deductible of $1,250. CPI, or Collateral Protection Insurance, is added by Unitus only if you are not able to provide this proof of insurance.
CPI is more costly than regular vehicle insurance, doesn’t cover your liability, and only protects the Credit Union’s interest in the vehicle. If you are billed for CPI, we strongly encourage you to obtain vehicle insurance and then contact the Credit Union.
