What is Lender Placed Insurance?


Despite its importance, many drivers in the United States do not have auto insurance. When a borrower leaves a dealership, they might have car insurance at that moment, but due to difficulties in payment, they could end up allowing it to lapse leaving the lender’s collateral unprotected. Auto insurance prices have skyrocketed making it more difficult for drivers to maintain the proper coverage. When this happens, the lender’s business is suddenly at risk. This is where lender-placed insurance becomes highly valuable.

Understanding Lender-Placed Insurance

Lender-placed insurance is placed on an auto loan by the lienholder. This form of insurance is also commonly called collateral protection insurance (CPI). This type of insurance allows the vehicle to remain insured if the borrower stops their insurance or the coverage is not enough.

The great advantage of lender-placed insurance is that it protects the lender’s vehicle and covers the repair costs if the borrower is in an accident if they do not have the proper auto insurance coverage. Lender-placed insurance also protects if the accident results in a total loss of the vehicle.
