SBA guidance prohibits borrowers from receiving forgiveness on any amount of the PPP loan that exceeds the “supported maximum loan amount” as calculated under current statutes, regulation and guidance.
PNC is completing a review of all existing PPP loans. If we have contacted you regarding needed documentation for your initial PPP loan, we ask that you continue to work with us to provide these.
No. You must apply for forgiveness through the PNC PPP Loan Forgiveness Portal to receive forgiveness on your loan. If you do not apply for forgiveness, you must start making payments when your deferral period ends.
The date that is 24 weeks plus 10 months after disbursement. If you do apply for forgiveness before this date, you will have a payment due (if your loan is not fully forgiven) the month following the month in which we receive a decision from the SBA.
You can expect your first payment to include all interest that has accrued on your unforgiven principal since you’ve received your funds plus a portion of the unforgiven principal. (For further details please refer to your PPP Promissory Note)
For example, Company A received a PPP loan with a 2 year term of $10,000 in May 2020. The term began when Company A received funding. No payments have been made and the deferral period ends in August 2021. Company A’s first payment will be due in September 2021.
The first payment will include both a portion of outstanding principal and all accrued interest. The principal amount due ($1,111.11) is based on the outstanding principal balance divided by the remaining months of the term ($10,000/9 months). The accrued interest would be $135.56, and therefore the total first payment would be $1,246.67.
Customers can apply for forgiveness any time up to the maturity date of the loan or until the loan is fully paid off. Deadlines could change based on future guidance by the SBA.
Yes. You will have the opportunity to extend your PPP loan term from 2 years to 5 years from the date of Loan Disbursement. Please note that you may pay more total interest over the life of your loan due to the extended term, however, you may always choose to pay down or pay off your loan early without prepayment fees.
You may select this modification while applying for forgiveness. For further details or questions, please call your PNC Banker or PNC's Customer Care Center at 1-877-287-2654.
Yes. Customers must begin making monthly payments if their first invoice has been generated because they did not apply for forgiveness before their Deferral Expiration Date (which is described in their PPP Promissory Note). Customers are strongly encouraged to apply for forgiveness prior to that Deferral Expiration Date so they do not have to begin making payments.
