COVID-19 SECU Small Business Relief

COVID-19 Small Business Relief
SECU Paycheck Protection Program
UPDATE: As of April 16, 2020 the Federal Funding in the Payment Protection Program has been exhausted. We are hopeful that our congressional representatives will vote to approve additional funding to support our business members as soon as possible. Once this is done, SECU will proceed with submitting completed application packages. Please continue to connect with your SECU Business Relationship Manager for any questions related to this program or for additional financial guidance.

Small businesses are what keep our local economy thriving. As such, we want to ensure you’re able to remain strong and navigate through this crisis. SECU is proud to participate in the Small Business Administration (SBA’s) Paycheck Protection Program – offered through the government CARES Act.

This program is designed to offer small businesses (fewer than 500 employees) disrupted by COVID-19 emergency financial relief through a low-interest federally-backed, potentially forgivable loan, to cover things like: payroll, rent, utilities, and mortgage interest payments.

Find out if this program is the right for your business by reviewing additional details provided by the SBA. Please note, to apply for a Pay Check Protection Program (PPP) loan through SECU you must be a SECU Business Member on or before Feb 15, 2020.

We are actively working with the SBA and awaiting their guidance on submission of completed applications. In the meantime, we’d like to start the process with our members in an effort to provide relief as soon as we are able.

1. Collect Proof of payroll costs and expenses, these could include:
  • IRS Form 940 and/or Form 941 for the previous tax year
  • Form W-2 Wage and Tax Statement Employer Reference Copy
  • Payroll summary report for 2020
  • Payroll processor records and/or IRS tax filings
