PPP Funds Exhausted for Commercial Banks
Busey Customer Portal Closed for New Applications

On May 5, 2021, the Small Business Administration (SBA) confirmed that Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding for commercial banks—including Busey—has been exhausted and that the SBA PPP application portal is no longer accepting applications for loans. Due to the SBA’s announcement, the Busey Customer Portal is no longer accepting new PPP applications at this time.

We will continue to update this page with timely information as it becomes available.
We have created a helpful video that walks users through Busey's online portal for PPP forgiveness applications.

Direct Economic Impact Payments
The IRS began distributing the second round of Economic Impact Payments via ACH in late February.  As funds were received and posted to customers’ accounts, they were immediately available for use.

As a reminder, Busey does not oversee or have information about customers’ payment eligibility, payment amount, distribution date, or distribution format.

Payment amounts were calculated by the IRS using 2019 tax filings. For more information, view Busey’s Economic Impact Payment FAQs or visit the IRS website.

Included in the CARES Act are provisions specific to retirement plans, including changes for required minimum distributions (RMDs), tax relief and early withdrawal penalty waivers, 401(k) loans and extended deadlines for employer contributions.
