COVID-19 MESSAGE – UPDATED
To Our Members:
After exceptional demand, the federal government has injected an additional $350 billion dollars into the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and another $60 billion into the Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) program—two lifelines for small businesses during the coronavirus pandemic.
The federal CARES Act created the PPP and EIDL funding to QUICKLY help small businesses cover immediate needs and longer-term obligations, including payroll for their employees. Materials on the programs—including a PPP application form and guidance from the U.S. Treasury Department, among other helpful documents—are available on the COVID-19 Resource Center page of this web site, in the “Insurance Industry Resources” section.
Also available there is an application/calculation form (effective as of May 15) that PPP borrowers must use if they want their PPP loan forgiven, based on what expenses the borrower used the PPP money for.
THIS IS WORTH YOUR TIME AND ATTENTION. WE KNOW OF NUMEROUS AGENCIES THAT HAVE SUCCESSFULLY APPLIED FOR THE PPP PROGRAM IN THE FIRST ROUND.
NAIFA-NYS is the only organization exclusively representing life insurance agents & financial advisors in NYS – encouraging a strong marketplace, enhanced business & professional skills, and ethical conduct.
NAIFA-NYS staff, as required by
the Governor, are now working remotely
in response to COVID-19. We remain
fully accessible via phone and e-mail.
