How it works:

  1. Dealer sells a car
  2. The F&I team sells a vehicle service contract for that car
  3. Contract and admin fee go to Assurant— reserve goes to dealership account
  4. Administrator adjudicates claims for contract life
  5. Dealership has 100% access to reserve and keeps 100% of underwriting profit and investment income

Cash Flow Example

Selling 75 service contracts per month with a $700 reserve cost

The chart below calculates the cash reserve at a dealership that sells 150 retail units per month, or 1,800 units per year, at a 50% service contract penetration rate. In this participation model, the dealer can immediately make use of the reserve until it’s needed for refunds, claims and taxes.
Time PeriodCash Reserved Generated
After 1 month$52,500
After 6 months$315,000
After 12 months$630,000
After 24 months$1,260,000
After 36 months$1,890,000

What the Dealer Obligor Program Could Do for Your Dealership

The Assurant Dealer Obligor program offers a comprehensive menu of products for new and used vehicles. Assurant provides all the marketing materials, documents and contractual liability insurance while you maintain total control of the income generated. This means it’s easy for you to offer a service and maintenance program where, unlike traditional programs, you hold the cash reserves providing financial leverage and investment income potential.

The Assurant Dealer Obligor program can be up and running at your dealership in a matter of weeks. Assurant will support the transition from start to finish, making the process easy and transparent for you.

And, should your goals change and you need to adjust your participation position, you can move from one participation plan to another without any switching costs or loss of productivity at the dealership.
