          This information is wrong. When you call the SBA 800 number to inquire about the status of your EIDL advance application they simply say that there is no way for them to check the application status. It’s unfortunate the blogs keep distributing incorrect information.

            Hi Kam,

            Our information is sourced from the SBA, but as we warn readers in our How To Check The Status Of Your EIDL post, many have reported difficulty getting an update.

            Unfortunately, some merchants are reporting that when contacting the SBA, they have found that there is currently no way to check the status of your EIDL application. We presume that this is due to the high volume of applications the SBA has received. Be aware that some methods of contact might not work at this time.
            If you applied through the COVID-19 portal, you will have to wait until the SBA contacts you regarding your loan status, even if you have an application number. Some applicants haven’t received an email or phone call from the SBA but did receive a deposit in their bank account from the SBA with an attached application number.

            If you applied for an EIDL outside of the COVID-19 portal, you can call the SBA’s toll-free number to inquire about the status of your loan.
