Do I need to apply for PPP through Womply or PPP Fast Lane?
No, you are under no obligation to apply for the PPP through Womply or PPP Fast Lane. In fact, there are over 5,000 lending institutions that are approved by the government to originate PPP loans (and Womply is NOT one of them–we are a technology company). If you would prefer to work with a lender that doesn’t work with Womply you can find one here. We hope to earn your business, but mostly we want to make sure you get funded!
Will PPP Fast Lane help me get approved faster for a PPP loan?
No, PPP Fast Lane will make it easier and faster for you to create your applications but no company can change the speed at which the SBA reviews or approves PPP loan applications.
Will PPP Fast Lane apply for PPP automatically on my behalf?
No, PPP Fast Lane may be able to collect the info you need to apply more quickly. But PPP Fast Lane and Womply cannot apply on your behalf. In all cases you are fully responsible for determining your eligibility, entering correct information, reviewing, certifying, initialing, and signing your loan applications, promissory notes, and forgiveness applications.
Will PPP Fast Lane get me PPP loan forgiveness automatically?
No, PPP Fast Lane collects information from you quickly so that you can apply for PPP forgiveness quickly. As a borrower, you are wholly responsible for your forgiveness application and the information contained in it. We make no representations about your eligibility for forgiveness, whether or not forgiveness will be granted to you, or the speed with which you will receive forgiveness.
Womply is not a lender. Our technology is intended to make PPP loans and PPP forgiveness easier, however you as a borrower are solely responsible for all aspects of the information you provide to Womply, your lender, and the government. Forgiveness must be managed directly between the borrower and lender.
If I have been rejected elsewhere for PPP can I apply through PPP Fast Lane?
Yes, however we make no representations about your eligibility or ability to get approved with one of Womply’s lenders–whether or not you apply through PPP Fast Lane.
I believe I/my business is not eligible for a PPP loan, will PPP Fast Lane help me apply anyway?
If you aren’t eligible for a PPP loan then you shouldn’t be applying for PPP. If you aren’t sure whether or not you’re eligible, we recommend you research that question and when in doubt you should apply (either with a Womply lender or any other PPP lender). However you should be careful when reading all aspects of your application. Don’t lie on your application. Be sure to understand what you are certifying and signing. If it’s not correct for any reason, then ask for help or stop. Do not submit a knowingly fraudulent application with Womply or PPP Fast Lane.
Do I need to have good credit to apply for Fast Lane?
No! There is no credit check for this program. Applying for a loan will not affect your credit, nor will receiving one.
I didn't file taxes, am I still eligible?
No, you must have filed your taxes and provide a PDF copy of your IRS Form 1040 and Schedule C documents from 2019.
Can I apply with a Schedule E?
You can only use Schedule C or Schedule F with Fast Lane. Schedule E is not likely to be accepted for a PPP loan, but if you’d still like to apply with a Schedule E you can start at womply.com/ppp
We know the vast majority of PPP borrowers are deserving, eligible businesses. We will seek to address potential fraud in a manner that minimizes the negative impacts to legitimate borrowers using our platform.
Made a mistake?
If you’ve already received your PPP loan: You can repay your lender at any time. We strongly encourage you to do this if you are uncertain about whether you should have received a PPP loan. Neither Womply nor your lender can provide you advice on this subject.
If you haven’t received your loan yet and want to cancel: Depending on the status of your application you may still be able to cancel your application by logging in. If your application has already been received by your lender or the SBA, then you can decline to sign the agreements that we will send you. If you don’t sign these documents, your loan will never be funded.
If you suspect fraud with your application or you think your personal personal information may have been compromised, please report the incident directly to the SBA complaint portal. You may also contact us.
