Good To Know

Loan Payoff

If we processed the title work electronically, we will contact Texas DMV to release our lien. 10 business days after the loan is paid off, the title will be mailed to the address on record.

If your title was not processed electronically, JSC FCU will mail the title 10 business days after the loan is paid off to the address on record.

GAP (Guaranteed Auto Protection) Insurance 

GAP Insurance helps pay off your remaining loan balance if your boat is stolen or damaged, and is deemed to be a total loss. GAP Insurance bridges the "gap" that can occur when the unexpected (accident or theft) happens to your boat. It bridges the amount you owe and the amount your boat insurance covers for your boat.

Benefits Include:

  • Protection for the term of your loan up to 84 months.
  • Coverage for boats financed up to $100,000.

You may even qualify to add the cost of GAP to your loan. Please contact a JSC FCU representative for more details.

  • The co-borrower, must be a JSC FCU member.
  • Interest rate is based on the qualified co-borrower - parent, grandparent or legal guardian.
  • Loan qualification is based on the parent, grandparent or legal guardian.
  • The co-borrower may choose the name(s) listed on the title. (Both the borrower and co-borrower or one or the other.)
