Gap insurance in New York works the same way as gap insurance in the rest of the U.S., by paying the balance remaining on a car loan or lease contract after a liability, comprehensive, or collision policy pays out the actual cash value of a totaled vehicle. The state of New York doesn’t require any driver to carry gap insurance. However, certain lenders in New York may require customers to carry gap insurance – short for guaranteed asset (or auto) protection insurance – if they get a car loan or lease.
Dozens of companies, including banks and dealerships, offer gap insurance in New York. While you should take your time deciding which one is right for you, you can also have confidence in the fact that gap insurance works the same way in New York as in the rest of the country.
