Important disclosure information

Your application to participate in the SBA Paycheck Protection Program, including any second draw loans, is subject to review of information and documents the SBA or we may require you to provide. Loan approval is not guaranteed. Synovus will not pay fees to or otherwise compensate anyone acting as an agent of the applicant for advising on or assisting in the preparation of the Paycheck Protection Program application or otherwise.

Synovus will process your application for loan forgiveness as the originating lender for your PPP loan based on the guidance and parameters established by the SBA, which may be subject to change. The SBA, and not Synovus, sets the criteria for loan forgiveness, including the eligibility criteria and the parameters that determine how much of your loan may be forgiven. The SBA may instruct us to hold your loan forgiveness application if it decides to conduct a review of your application, or it may instruct us to deny your loan forgiveness application. In its guidance, the SBA has indicated the reasons why it may decide to review an application for loan forgiveness.
