Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan Forgiveness Update

One week after issuing the long-awaited Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan Forgiveness Application, the Small Business Administration (SBA) issued additional rules. We remain committed to keeping you abreast of the newest information and to assist you through the entire PPP process.

We are exploring providing an automated solution for the PPP Loan Forgiveness Application for your convenience which will be available once we have determined the least burdensome and most efficient platform. We will also continue to keep you apprised of when the SBA will begin taking these applications, as the portal is not yet available for forgiveness submissions.

We realize some of you may be nearing your eight week window. We will keep you informed of any guidance from the SBA and will continue to work diligently to support you through this process.

Also for your convenience, here are the most up-to-date PPP Loan Forgiveness links:

In the meantime, if you have any questions regarding your loan, please contact your Account Officer or Branch Manager directly or Joan Medeiros at 508-324-3685. Again, we remain committed to helping you through this very difficult time.

Social Distancing Measures and Updated Hours

Our number one priority remains the health and safety of our customers and employees. We also remain committed to taking the necessary steps to mitigate the spread of the virus at our facilities, with the least amount of disruption possible for our customers. As a result, we have implemented the following changes to our branch availability, further enhancing our social distancing practices.

Help for Our Community Partners

At Bristol County Savings Bank we take our commitment to our communities very seriously. The effects of COVID-19 are being felt throughout our community and many of our non-profit partners are on the front lines trying to help those affected as well as dealing with their own negative financial impact. We want to be a resource during these difficult times.

In response to these needs, the Bristol County Savings Charitable Foundation will be shifting resources to support community-based organizations in Bristol County Massachusetts and Pawtucket, Rhode Island providing resources and services at the front lines of the coronavirus outbreak and/or those organizations experiencing financial hardship as a result of the epidemic.
