Above and Beyond
Every team has them - those employees who go above and beyond to make a difference. The ones who gladly go the extra mile and we're inviting you to help us recognize them!
Go to our web site, tell us about someone who has gone above and beyond, and they will be entered into a quarterly drawing for $300. You know who they are - the ones who make it their job to make life better for a credit union member or other employees - inside the credit union or out in the community!
When it comes to protecting your member, your credit union and your bottom line, we, too, believe in going Above & Beyond. At Frost Financial (home of VisualGAP), we work with over 1,000 credit unions on insurance and lending products that protect the financial well-being of your members, drive revenue, lending growth and loss prevention. The launch of our TotalRestart depreciation protection program for low LTV auto loans is a prime example of our commitment to your success.
We look forward to hearing your Above & Beyond story! Please visit our web site, complete the recognition form and tell us what the team member did to go the extra mile. Because each quarter, we will select one Above & Beyond story at random from all those we receive and award that employee $300!
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!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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®.
