      I have checked the status of my eidl loan. The status says ” processing”. Does that mean the loan has been approved or that sba is checking the application at this time?
      Thank you

        Hi Gloria,

        Once approved, the status should change to “approved”, so keep checking back! Good luck!

          Hello. I was approved for the SBA loan from Hurricane Ida. All my information is correct. I was told by my SBA representative that I will receive funds within 5-7 business days. It’s been 12 and no funds deposited yet. Called my bank to see if it’s on hold they have no information as well. When will the funds be available? I’ve called the representative and she said she has no clue when it will go through.

            Hi Jennifer,

            Unfortunately, it sounds like you’ve done about all you can do. The SBA just directs borrowers to check their portal and emails for loan status updates. We’d recommend that you keep an eye on your account and continue to contact the SBA by phone or email (you can find all the information you need here) to try to get answers. We sure wish we could do more to help, but unfortunately, that’s about all the advice SBA offers. Best wishes for fast funding to you!

                Hi Duane,

                Unfortunately, the SBA does not state a specific minimum credit score requirement for disaster loans. However, the organization will check your credit when you apply for a disaster loan. You can find more info on our SBA Disaster Loan Qualifications post. Best wishes to you!

                        Hi Heath!

                        I am sorry to hear about the issues you are having with the SBA portal and phone lines. I would encourage you to keep trying to access your portal and to contact the SBA via phone or email. Over the last few months, there have been a few times when users reported that the SBA system was overwhelmed. Fortunately, these issues didn’t appear to last very long, so again, I’d just recommend trying again. Good luck!
