As an auto finance company or BHPH car dealer, one of your main concerns is risk management in the auto insurance industry. The responsibility of the borrower is not always guaranteed, but with Collateral Protection Insurance, or CPI, we can help mitigate that risk and help borrowers feel more responsible for the amount they are borrowing from a lender. If you’re a lender, you may have had trouble ensuring borrowers, or helping them purchase adequate auto insurance to fulfill their loan agreement insurance requirements. Verifacto™ insurance tracking software can help your business provide adequate control, risk mitigation, and lending management all in one easy-to-use, comprehensive program. Let’s look deeper into CPI and how Verifacto™ works.

What Is Collateral Protection Insurance?
Also known as lender-placed insurance, collateral protection insurance requires your customer to maintain auto insurance throughout the life of the loan. If they are not able to provide evidence of insurance within seven days of signing the loan, you can enforce the CPI addendum for your protection.
Collateral protection insurance works well in an auto loan situation, but how does it work, exactly? A borrower signs the loan agreement and an insurance addendum. The addendum provides the initial CPI disclosures regarding the debtor’s obligation to maintain insurance during the term of the loan and also requires the debtor to acknowledge the following:
- The debtor does have and will be providing evidence of physical damage insurance before taking possession of the collateral
- The debtor will not be providing evidence of insurance and understands that CPI will be added in seven days at a disclosed cost to the debtor if he does not provide evidence of insurance.
With collateral protection insurance, only uninsured borrowers of lender-owned collaterals are affected. In addition, CPI insurance policies can protect borrowers as well by repairing a damaged vehicle. CPI is a win-win for lenders and borrowers, reducing the instability caused by uninsured drivers. Borrowers may, however, have to pay the premium charge for CPI.
