There are now two ways to apply for forgiveness of PPP loans.

  • Direct Forgiveness through the SBA:

INB is participating in Direct Forgiveness through the SBA. The SBA has indicated that the portal is quick and easy to use and forgiveness applications could take as little as 3-5 minutes to complete.

After August 4, 2021 the portal can be accessed at https://directforgiveness.sba.gov/.

Direct Forgiveness is reserved for those PPP borrowers whose loans are $150,000 or less. A PDF with detailed instructions for the portal can be found by accessing that link. 

  • Forgiveness through INB:

If your loan is for more than $150,000 or you choose not to use Direct Forgiveness, you can access INB’s portal at https://inb.lenderscooperative.com/

This is the same portal that was used for origination. You will first log-in on the right hand side and then Start a New Forgiveness Application under the PPP Forgiveness Applications tab.

The portal will walk you through the forgiveness process and complete the appropriate form.

* Loans of $150,000 or less can and should utilize the Streamlined 3508S Process.

* Loans greater than $150,000 should use the Streamlined 3508 EZ Process, if possible, or the 3508 Full Process.
