Frequently Asked Questions

Wednesday, September 22, 2021, 12:00pm EST

The Employee Retention Credit is still available! So please join NFIB’s COVID-19 experts Beth Milito and Holly Wade, and special guest Kristi Stone, CPA, for an informative webinar that will provide answers to the most frequently asked questions about the Employee Retention Credit (ERC). The ERC could amount to $33,000 per employee and is a valuable alternative for those who either did not apply or did not qualify for PPP and other emergency grants.  


• What exactly is the retention credit?
• Who is eligible for the retention credit?
• How do I use both the PPP and ERC?
• What is the process of claiming the ERC?

And, as always, NFIB hosts Beth and Holly will conclude the webinar with LIVE Q&A to answer your PPP, ERC, FFCRA, and EIDL questions.
