No, State Farm does not offer gap insurance. Instead of traditional gap insurance, State Farm has a Payoff Protector® benefit, which is similar to gap insurance and included with every vehicle financed by State Farm Bank or used as collateral on a State Farm loan.
How State Farm's Version of Gap Insurance Works
Like gap insurance, State Farm’s Payoff Protector benefit covers the outstanding principal balance on a State Farm auto loan after the car is totaled or stolen and the primary insurance provider pays its share.
Once a customer’s collision or comprehensive insurance provider (it doesn’t have to be State Farm), or another driver’s liability insurance, makes its payment, Payoff Protector will pay the rest owed to State Farm Bank. The loan must be in good standing for the Payoff Protector benefit to apply.
State Farm Payoff Protector Eligibility
State Farm’s Payoff Protector benefit isn’t an insurance product that can be purchased by customers without a loan contract from State Farm Bank. It also has different rules and restrictions depending on where a customer lives. For more information about State Farm Bank’s Payoff Protector benefit, call the company directly at 877-SF4-BANK (877-734-2265).
