Letters of Guarantee (LOG) & Legal Jeopardy

How does the routine and common practice of signing a Letter of Guarantee with your borrower's physical damage insurance company become a legal nightmare for you? Simple. You signed up for it.

As is standard procedure, when a borrower totals his or her car, the insurance company sends the lien holder a summary letter and a document called a Letter of Guarantee (LOG). The Letter of Guarantee details what they will pay in return for releasing the title of the totaled auto. This letter is written by the insurance company and is, naturally, designed to protect their interests; however, it has the potential to jeopardize the interests, legal and financial, of you and your borrower──if you sign it!

Contest Corner

GRAND PRIZE
prizes

You can win great prizes by entering our VisualGAP® contests! You will be awarded an entry into the contest each time you sell a GAP waiver. The more GAP waivers you sell through VisualGAP® the more opportunities you have to win.

You can enter to win by clicking on 'Update Profile' in the 'Contest Corner' tab and selecting "Yes, enter me in the VisualGAP® contests". Please make sure to check with management at your Financial Institution prior to enrolling in the contests. You can always change your selection by clicking on 'Update Profile' at a later date.

This is a win-win situation for both you and your Financial Institution. The more you sell the more opportunities you have to win, but you also help protect more borrowers and generate more fee income for your Financial Institution.

If your Financial Institution does not want to participate in Contest Corner, please call us at 888.753.7678 and we can turn off access to the current contests for all loan officers.

IMPORTANT NOTICE! - Browser Update May Be Required

We are in the planning stages to terminate support of outdated Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1 protocols due to known security vulnerabilities. In keeping with industry standards and best practices, VisualGAP will migrate to TLS 1.2 for all components of our processes in the coming weeks.
In order to access VisualGAP you will need to make sure your web browser is updated and meets our new minimum browser requirements that support the latest, most secure protocols. Here are the general, minimum browser requirements for VisualGAP effective upon the update:

  • Google Chrome - version 30 or greater
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer - version 11 or greater
  • Microsoft Edge - all versions
  • Firefox - version 32 or greater
  • Apple Safari - version 7 or greater

Please make sure to engage your IT team if necessary to ensure that you will not be impacted. After the updated version of VisualGAP is in place, older browsers that attempt to access VisualGAP after the update will simply get a white screen with no warning or error message. If you are currently using one of the above browsers you will not be impacted by this change. If you are unsure of your browser version and need some assistance to determine your browser version please click here for step-by-step instructions.

Please watch for future communications regarding this update and contact us if you have any questions or if you need additional information at 888.753.7678.

TotalRestart Loyalty Membership Program

Frost has recently introduced an enhancement to our GAP program that can greatly increase the value of your GAP offering. Our new TotalRestart Loyalty Membership Program does more than just forgive a deficiency loan balance created by a theft or total loss. It helps borrowers replace their total loss vehicle with one similar to the one they originally purchased and financed with your Financial Institution.

Contact your local representative or email us at jtenhundfeld@frostinsure.com to learn how you can significantly increase your GAP sales by adding clear value and benefits to your GAP offering. Additionally, increase loyalty after a total loss and ensure that the loan for the replacement vehicle ends up with your Financial Institution.

TotalRestart is available exclusively through VisualGAP®.
