CARES Act: Paycheck Protection Program

Information for Small Businesses that Have Been Affected by COVID-19

Please Note: Due to the expected demand for the Paycheck Protection Program, we will initially only accept applications from current American Momentum Bank clients (former Security Bank clients).

We believe in building relationships that stand the test of time. Rest assured, during this current COVID-19 crisis, our bankers will stand with you to protect your business.

The newly enacted Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act provides one of the largest stimulus aid packages to individuals and businesses in the nation’s history. The CARES Act includes the Paycheck Protection Program, a $349 billion business loan program that offers relief measures to small businesses, primarily to keep employees on payroll and cover other stipulated business expenses.

Application Process

If you plan to submit an application, you can prepare for the application process by reading the Program Overview and Borrower Information Fact Sheet, and by gathering the following documentation:

    1. The application has been updated and the updated version of the Paycheck Protection Program Application will need to be completed.
      • Attach Addendum A if you answered Yes on Question #3 
      • Attach Addendum B if you answered Yes on Question #4
    2. Full-year payroll information by employee for 2019 (this can include benefits and healthcare provided and must be supplied for all employees)

    4. 1099 Forms for 2019, if you paid your employees as contractors (contractors will file for themselves and cannot be counted toward your employment costs for the loan amount calculation). This should include documentation of how many full-time employees were on the payroll as of 2/15/2020.
