Individuals who have previously established a direct deposit for their tax filings or completed the form for the Economic Impact Payment should have received their stimulus payment deposited directly into their account on file. The IRS is now working to distribute all pending Economic Impact Payments in weekly increments up until the week of September 11th, 2020. The amount and timeframe for your Stimulus Payment is determined by the IRS.

Small Business Administration (SBA) Lending
Five Star Bank is encouraged to see our communities and small businesses begin to re-open under “New York Forward”. We are continually impressed by the resilience and dedication of our small business owners to their employees and communities.
As of now, we are not accepting requests for forgiveness. It’s important that you take the time to focus on your business and document your PPP spending through your Covered Period2. We anticipate starting to accept forgiveness requests by mid-August and will email you when you can start the forgiveness process
Monitor this page for the very latest forgiveness updates or contact your Business Banking Relationship Manager.
2 The Covered Period is either:
- The 24-week (168-day) period beginning on the PPP Loan Disbursement Date, or
- The 8-week (56-day) period beginning on the PPP Loan Disbursement Date if you received your PPP loan before June 5, 2020 and elect to use an eight-week (56-day) Covered Period.
For example, if you are using a 24-week Covered Period and received your PPP loan proceeds on Monday, April 20, the first day of the Covered Period is April 20 and the last day of the Covered Period is Sunday, October 4.
The Covered Period cannot extend beyond December 31, 2020.
