APR is the Annual Percentage Rate and it is the total cost of credit expressed in a yearly rate including interest and finance charges.
APY is the Annual Percentage Yield reflecting the total amount of dividends paid on a deposit account, based on the dividend rate and the frequency of compounding for a 365-day period.
The key difference is APY is the potential effective yield for deposits and APR is the effective cost/rate for loans.

When you drive your new or used vehicle off the dealer’s lot it begins to depreciate in value. This could mean that there is a big difference between what you owe on the loan and what your auto insurance will pay in the event of a total loss. In the event of a total loss, GAP insurance pays the difference between the value of your vehicle and what you owe on your loan. It also covers your insurance deductible up to $1,000 and you can receive $500 towards the purchase of a new car.
You can add GAP insurance to your Dominion Energy CU car loan at any time; just call us at 800-268-6928.
