The Good

  • Availability
  • Receive Funds by Next Day
  • Industry Pioneer


OneMain Financial has nearly 1,700 branches in 44 states, providing a large portion of the country with the opportunity to take advantage of its services. OneMain Financial offers three ways to apply for a personal or auto loan: online, over the phone, or in person. It is one of only a few loan companies to offer three application options, as many newer providers only offer an online option. For those customers who like a personal touch, OneMain can provide it.

Receive Funds by Next Day

After discussing your particular case with a professional, qualified loan processor, if you are approved by noon, you can receive your money by as soon as the same day. OneMain loan proceeds may be disbursed by check, Automated Clearing House (ACH) deposit, or a prepaid card. Receipt and availability of loan proceeds varies based on the funding option selected. Potential borrowers may contact a OneMain loan specialist for additional information about funding options and funds availability.

Industry Pioneer

Originally established in 1912 under the name Commercial Credit, OneMain Financial touts itself as a pioneer in the finance industry. Just four years after its founding, the company began offering installment loans for automobiles, which was an exciting new phenomenon at the time. Since 1944, the company has been operating a credit insurance unit known as OneMain Solutions. As such, the company is an experienced player in the financial industry.

The Bad

  • Limited Max Loan Amount

Limited Max Loan Amount

With OneMain Financial, the maximum loan amount available for personal loans is $15,000, which is relatively low when compared to loan amounts offered by other top companies in the industry. However, borrowers do have the option to take out $30,000 with OneMain if the loan is for a car. 

The Bottom Line

OneMain Financial allows consumers to apply for a loan online, over the phone, or in person, making the process simple and convenient for many individuals. The company, which is a pioneer in the financial industry, can provide borrowers with funds as early as the same day.

I had to keep sending them different documents for work and personal information. I was told I was approved for the loan and made plans accordingly. About 5 days later I still had not got any money deposited into my account as promised. When I called to find out why they told me I wasn't approved. When asked they said I was approved but during verification I wasn't approved. So I was approved but wasn't approved. Then was told a letter would be mailed out between 30-40 days. This loan was to help my family move and we had accepted new jobs in the new town and quit our old ones based off being told we were approved.

I wanted to refinance my car. We went through the process and come to find out I had stuff on my credit that was not mine so I couldn’t refinance. The person I talked to was very kind and explained everything in detail so I would know how to take care of the bad credit that was not mine. She told me once I get it off to call her and she will get it taken care of. Very amazing!!!

The biggest rip off ever. I wasted 3 years trying to pay this loan off. I would not recommend this loan to anyone, even if it is a do or die situation.

Ive received a loan, refinanced it, never missed nor been late for a payment, now that i applied for another loan all of a sudden the policy has changed. I consider myself a great customer and credit score has risen although i was told i had to have titles in order to receive another loan, once this one is paid, they will never get my business again.

Lot's of hidden fees, which are not verbally explained. I had a secured loan using my auto title. The first 'extra fee' was for $500.00 to add to the loan of $1,200.00. Now three years later, I have paid off my loan but have yet to receive the paperwork for the 'Release of Lein'. I feel very anxious about this situation and hope that this company is not crooked. I shouldn't have to go to court to get my property back. The website is very sketchy as well. My last statement offered the same lack of info as the website. No mention of my last payment being tbe 'payoff'. One good thing about this company is that they have 'hardship' program for struggling customers that temporarily can't make their payments. I was on this program for 6 weeks. That may be why I am not receiving my payoff paperwork. If that is the case then why have I not been informed????

This company will harass you non-stop if you're even 3 days past the "due date" (You have 10 day Grace period to make your payment!! Managers will be very rude and non-sympatheic to anything you're dealing with and will demand a payment regardless of your situation. They will call you more than once in one day! All day long! Very unprofessional and unfriendly company all around!

These people are loan sharks! They will give you money at crazy interest rates and very high payments. Do NOT go here unless you are being threatened with your life!

The Minot North Dakota branch has top notch employees. They made us feel comfortable and we would definitely do business with them in the future.

When I had a medical emergency and could not work I got a loan from them, using my old car as collateral.. it was fast and easy, no hassle.. and in two days it was deposited in my account. I have auto payments pulled from my account twice a month, on the days I chose, and I never have to think about it.. it was perfect, and easy! And a life saver!

One Main is easy to work with and very professional. Their staff members are friendly and knowledgeable. They tell you what kind of loan terms they can offer you and give you time to decide if it works for you. They don't hassle you with calls.

One Main was an awesome surprise! We wanted to consolidate some of our bills but we already had a bank loan and needed a larger loan than companies supply here. We thought! Then we received an add in the mail from One Main Financial and talked about it....and then called!!! Best decision we made! Got financed for more than we thought PLUS it's convenient pay just auto drafted out of our checking account!! Paid off accounts & had some extra to put into savings!!! A win win situation!!!!

OneMain helped me so much. I needed a loan, was approved the same day, and went to meet with the rep the same day. They were fast, precise, friendly, and they did not make me feel rushed. I would recommend them to everyone, even my worst enemy.

Our visit to One Main for a loan application was very pleasant. The process went rather quick, every detail was explained, the people there are very friendly and knowledgeable and understand your needs. Thorough process of explaining every detail and options. OK, I'm a big coffee drinker and the first thing I noticed was the free coffee machine and being waved a hello from a gentleman in the back. We have been doing business with One Main (bill consolidation) for a while now and find them to be highly competent, reliable, and fair. We highly recommend them as their staff is very knowledgeable and will go through your financial problems with understanding and willingness to help.

I had the best experience with the staff at my branch. They really went above and beyond what they had to do. I really doubt that a bank would have tried as hard as they did to help with my loan and everything turned out great.

Have to say One main has been there for me for almost 7 years and has been out standing and understanding with helping me fight threw my cancer never ask for forgiveness until now cause I was out of work for 2 years and still made my monthly payment on time until these last few months were I fell behind and one main picked me back up to help me and my family. Just wish there was just a little more to get me establish again and promise to fulfil my obligation to one main.. A substantial loan will help me payoff everything and be less stress due to had having cancer which I lost 2 years of battling and praying that a decent loan will get me back on top.. 7 year loan I made on time payments just need another loan that can secure my debt and be happy that a few thousand will help me get my life and my family's life back on track. But I'm grateful for the help that was provided .. I no with a 5000 dollar loan will help almost bring tears to my eyes cause I been working for my company 16 years. Just these few months with being out of work set me back if not my loans would have been paid off. I just need the support and trust that I know I can payback any loan that would be given to me I proved it with my car loan 72 months and coming down to just 6 months my cancer has set me back but in fighting hard every day to prove I'm worthy of a respected loan form one main if there can help me out would be Great with the holidays approaching I nice loan to set me free and pay you guys faithful just need a chance to prove my worth and will not let you down. Thank you OneMain and Tara and the rest of the Staff that is Great !!!! Just one chance to prove my worth . Z
