What Does Being Delinquent on an SBA Loan Mean?
Delinquent is the lender term given to those who are behind on their SBA loan payments. The small business can be behind by merely one day or months — the name doesn't change. However, being delinquent on your SBA loan means that the lender still believes you will pay the loan back.
What Does it Mean to Be in Default on an SBA Loan?
When your SBA loan enters the default status, this is when the small business fails to meet the terms in the promissory note agreement or they are shirking other responsibilities of the loan's terms. Ultimately, an SBA default status means that the lender believes you are unable to repay your small business loan back.
How to Deal with an SBA Loan that is Delinquent
If you are merely delinquent on your SBA loan, you can work with your lender to get back on track. Some options include making smaller payments, restructuring the SBA loan for you, and waiving late fees.
How to Deal with an SBA Loan in Default
For the most part, the federal government wants their money back if your SBA loan enters default status. It's at this point that you should reach out to a top-rated SBA attorney in order to help you resolve the matter favorably with your lender.

Clients personally guaranteed an SBA 7(a) loan that was referred to the Department of Treasury for collection.

We were able to negotiate a significant reduction of the total claimed amount from $220,000 to $119,000, saving the clients over $100,000 by arguing for a waiver of the statutory 28%-30% administrative fees and costs.
