SBA PPP Forgiveness FAQs

Important: Did you receive an Economic Injury Disaster Loan?

If you received an Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) and also received a PPP loan, the SBA will deduct the amount of your EIDL advance from your forgiveness amount. Please review the following questions for additional information. You can also find the latest updates on the SBA PPP webpage.

If a borrower received an EIDL advance, SBA is required to reduce the borrower’s loan forgiveness amount by the amount of the EIDL advance. SBA will deduct the amount of the EIDL advance from the forgiveness amount. OnPoint will be able to confirm the amount of the EIDL advance that will be automatically deducted by SBA from the forgiveness payment by reviewing the EIDL advance information provided by the borrower in their PPP application.

If a PPP loan is not forgiven in full (including if there has been a reduction in the forgiveness amount for an EIDL advance), any remaining balance due on the PPP loan must be repaid by the borrower. OnPoint will notify the borrower of the loan forgiveness amount remitted by SBA and the date on which the borrower’s first loan payment is due. The borrower must repay the remaining loan balance by the maturity date of the PPP loan (either two or five years). If a borrower is determined to have been ineligible for a PPP loan for any reason, SBA may seek repayment of the outstanding PPP loan balance or pursue other available remedies.

A borrower who received an EIDL advance in excess of the amount of their PPP loan will not receive any forgiveness on the PPP loan, because the amount of an EIDL advance is deducted from the PPP loan forgiveness amount.


We are confident that following these steps and using these tools will help to maximize your forgiveness. If you have any questions after watching the forgiveness process video and the instruction slides, you may contact [email protected].
