I had a great experience refinancing my car with DCCU. The refi drastically decreased my interest rate and my monthly payment. It was also a very quick and easy process.

Denver Community Credit Union requires all vehicles financed to carry auto insurance coverage with a $1,000 deductible or less where Denver Community Credit Union is named as the lienholder. Insurance coverage is routinely checked. If it is indicated that your insurance has lapsed or your coverage has dropped from the acceptable level, the credit union has the right to place Collateral Protection Insurance (CPI) on your vehicle.  This is an added monthly fee that is charged until proof of insurance, loss payable and deductible are provided to the credit union.

Collateral Protection Insurance is coverage that protects against physical damage and protects the credit union’s interest in your vehicle (your loan’s collateral).

Your signed loan documents give Denver Community Credit Union the right to force-place CPI on your vehicle when coverage has lapsed.  To avoid CPI, it is important to inform your insurance provider to name Denver Community Credit Union as the “Loss Payee/Lienholder” on your policy.  To mail insurance verification, please use the following address:

Denver Community Credit Union
1075 Acoma St.
Denver, CO 80204

CPI is not a substitute for finding your own insurance.  It is often much more expensive than auto insurance you would find from typical providers.  CPI does not provide protection for third-party bodily harm or injury, or to other property.  CPI only protects the vehicle as the collateral of the loan. If you are in need of insurance or would like to shop around for a better deal, check out Trustage to get a free quote.

To provide proof of insurance, please visit any branch location.  If you received a letter about missing insurance or a lack of insurance coverage, you can provide proof of insurance electronically by visiting

If you would like to mail, email or fax your proof of insurance:

PO Box 692130

GAP is Guaranteed Asset Protection and is often added or sold at the time of loan closing.  It covers the difference between what insurance covers and the amount you owe on your loan should your vehicle be totaled.  Even the best insurance may not cover the entire amount you owe on an auto loan.  In fact, if the average new car owner has his or her vehicle stolen or damaged beyond repair, they could still owe thousands of dollars after the insurance settlement. GAP will help fill the remaining balance of your loan and what insurance pays.  Plus with Denver Community’s GAP Advantage, you’ll get back on the road more quickly with a $1,000 allowance to finance a replacement vehicle with us.


To learn more about GAP Advantage, call 303-573-1170 or use our contact form.


*Guaranteed Asset Protection is considered insurance coverage in some states.

Your purchase of GAP is optional.  Whether or not you purchase GAP will not affect your application for credit or the terms of any existing credit agreement you have with the financial institution.  There are eligibility requirements, conditions, and exclusions that could prevent you from receiving benefits under GAP.  You should carefully read the contract for a full explanation of the terms.

Yes!  Major Mechanical Protection (MMP) from Denver Community Credit Union can help protect against the expense of future costly repairs.  The total cost of MMP is often far less than the cost of a single repair!  Pay for this protection once, and in most cases, you will not have to pay anything more than a small deductible should a breakdown occur. To learn more about MMP, call Denver Community Credit Union today at 303-573-1170.

If your loan was closed at the dealership, and you were not previously a member of the credit union at the time of financing, you will receive a welcome packet with your account information within 3-4 weeks.

You will need to know your Social Security Number, and provide a valid ID. The loan application will require information about your employment and income. Depending on the loan, you may be required to provide additional information.

If you are employed, paystubs are an acceptable form of proof of income. If you are self-employed, we require your last two years of tax returns. If you are retired, award letters are acceptable. If you are a non-citizen borrower, two years of tax returns are required.
