Additionally, our branches are provided disinfectant wipes and spray, hand sanitizer and gloves. Please note we will continue to urge everyone present at our office locations and branches to follow the guidance provided by the Center for Disease Control and Preventions (CDC).
2. SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)
Small Business Administration (SBA) and WAB SBA Team is continuing to work together to provide you with the assistance you need to get through these difficult times.
NOTE: The Paycheck Protection Program has been extended and we have resumed accepting applications again in response to the U.S. Government passing the program's extension legislation. The new deadline to apply for a Paycheck Protection Program loan is August 8, 2020.
For those who have already been funded through the PPP, you can begin to prepare for the Forgiveness Application.
- Please review the Paycheck Protection Program Loan Forgiveness Application form from the SBA website. We recommend you familiarize yourself with this document as we will be referring to it when processing your Forgiveness application
- Please also check to see if you qualify for more simpler 3508EZ form to request Forgiveness. The Checklist for using SBA Form 3508EZ clarifies who can use the simpler form to request Forgiveness. You must meet one of these three criteria:
- Self-employed and have no employees OR
- Did not reduce the salaries or wages of your employees by more than 25% and did not reduce the number of employees or hours of your employees OR
- Did not reduce the salaries or wages of your employees by more than 25% and did experience reductions in business activity as a result of health directives related to COVID-19. Business activity reductions could have resulted directly or indirectly from compliance with COVID Requirements or Guidance from federal, state or local government shutdown orders that prohibited you from maintaining the same Full Time Equivalency (FTE) employee levels.
- For both types of applications, here are additional updates that apply to your loan forgiveness program:
- You now have a 24-week Covered Period to spend loan funds starting the date loan funds were deposited into your Woori business checking account. If you were funded prior to June 5, you can still use the 8-week period and Alternative Payroll Covered Period.
- You must use at least 60% of funds for eligible payroll costs to qualify for full Loan Forgiveness.
- If you do not apply for Forgiveness within the deferral period, you must begin making payments after your deferral period.
- You will need to certify and document that you used the loan funds for SBA-eligible purposes
3. Banking Fee
Beginning July 1, 2020, we have discontinued the Banking Fee Waivers program, which included fee waivers on Overdraft Fees, ATM Fees, CD Early Withdrawal Penalty Fees, and Credit Card Late Payment Fees.
However, if you continue to suffer from financial hardship due to COVID-19, we are happy to work with you. Please get in touch with our branch representative or any of our customer service representatives.
