Economic Impact Payment

The U.S. Federal Government began delivering "Economic Impact Payments", as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security ("CARES") Act, to eligible Americans. These direct cash payments to individuals and families are for financial relief during the coronavirus pandemic, and are sometimes referred to as "stimulus checks."

If you’re receiving payment by check, there’s no need to visit a financial center, simply deposit your check using our Mobile Banking app and get immediate confirmation that your check was received.

For help in locating more detailed information and answers to your questions, watch our Economic Impact Payment video or visit the link below.

Important update to the Paycheck Protection Program

As of June 30, 2020, the Small Business Administration (SBA) is no longer accepting Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan applications.

For clients who received a PPP loan from the SBA through Bank of America, we look forward to supporting you as you begin the loan forgiveness phase of the program. We will begin opening our online loan forgiveness application in early August and will be emailing you with additional instructions on how and when to apply.

For up-to-date rules for the SBA’s PPP loan forgiveness process, including your covered period, the types of costs that are eligible for forgiveness, and what documentation you will need to submit as part of your application, please visit the SBA website.

As new information about the Paycheck Protection Program becomes available, we’ll provide updates at our Small Business Resource Site.

LEADERSHIP RESPONSE Supporting communities and small businesses across the country

As communities around the world adjust to the impacts of the coronavirus, Bank of America is committed to help them through—and plan for recovery. This effort includes an additional $100 million philanthropic commitment to support communities, which is incremental to the $250 million in philanthropy the bank provides each year. This funding will help local non-profits address growing issues such as food insecurity, access to distance learning, providing support to vulnerable populations, and increasing medical response capacity.

Additionally, Bank of America has committed up to $250 million in capital to community development financial institutions (CDFIs) to fund small businesses through the federal Paycheck Protection Program. Learn more.
