If you used collateral as any part of security for your SBA loan (this can be your home, car, or other business assets), the lender could seize these assets in order to sell and hope to recoup the money they lent to you.
If anyone else co-signed on your SBA loan, then their assets could also be at risk. The lender has the right to take assets in order to recoup their losses from anyone who guaranteed the loan.
The lender can take their case to the SBA and ask them to issue a demand letter, which is basically a legal and a formal demand for repayment of your defaulted SBA Loan.
The lender can take you to court and receive a judgment against you, giving them the right to take money from your bank account. They can also garnish your wages and your social security funds. In sum, they will take a fine tooth comb and analyze any and all business and personal assets you have in order to receive some compensation.

Client personally guaranteed an SBA 7(a) loan to help with a relative’s new business venture. After the business failed, Treasury was able to secure a recurring Treasury Offset Program (TOP) levy against our client’s monthly Social Security Benefits based on the claim that he owed over $1.2 million dollars. We initially submitted a Cross-Servicing Dispute, but then, prepared and filed an Appeals Petition with the SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals (SBA OHA). As a result of our efforts, we were able to convince the SBA to not only terminate the claimed debt of $1.2 million dollars against our client (without him having to file bankruptcy), but also refund the past recurring amounts that were offset from his Social Security Benefits in connection with the TOP levy.
