What is an SBA Loan?

life insurance for sba loan

SBA loans are one of the most popular types of loans for small businesses, usually ranging from $100,000 to upwards of several million dollars. SBA loans are obtained through an application process with a bank, credit union, or other lending institution. They are partially guaranteed by the U.S. Small Business Administration, and offer low interest rates and long repayment terms, making them an attractive option for businesses looking to invest in their future. The reason lenders are willing to offer such great loans to small businesses is that the SBA guarantees repayment of the loan amount from the government if the business owner defaults on the loan. Due to this backing, the application process for an SBA loan is a lengthy one with some more rigorous requirements than normal loans mandate. One of the SBA loan requirements is that borrowers maintain a life insurance policy that is at least equal to the loan amount.

Why is life insurance required on an SBA loan? In short, it serves as protection for the government and lending agency in the case of an untimely death of the business owner. If that were to occur, the loan would not be repaid, leaving the lending agency and the government holding the bag. The solution is to use life insurance as collateral to offset this risk. In other words, a life insurance policy that has a death benefit in the amount of the loan would ensure the loan could be repaid through the benefit. What does that mean for you, as a small business owner applying for an SBA loan? You will be required to have life insurance where you name a beneficiary, for example, someone in your family. Your SBA life insurance policy also must have a collateral assignment to your lender. The lender is not your beneficiary, but through a collateral assignment of life insurance, the loan would be repaid with the death benefit first, and anything left would then be distributed to your beneficiary.

    My very first insurance experience was when I bought my first house and I called the Nowell agency for a quote. I had no idea what I needed or how much and they were so very kind and knowledgeable and explained everything to me in detail which I so much appreciated. That has been 4 years ago and im still a customer never plan to leave.
