OneMain Financial, the leader in offering nonprime customers responsible access to credit, has implemented a Borrower’s Assistance program to provide relief to customers in Florida affected by Hurricane Ian. The program will provide options to eligible customers, including deferring loan payments. The assistance will be available through Oct. 31 for customers in 17 counties in Florida: Charlotte, Collier, Desoto, Flagler, Hardee, Hillsborough, Lee, Manatee, Orange, Osceola, Pinellas, Polk, Putnam, Sarasota, Seminole, St. Johns and Volusia.
The company continues to monitor other states and counties that may have been impacted. Additionally, OneMain will host a community relief event on Saturday, Oct. 8 at 10 a.m. Eastern at the company’s branch in Port Charlotte, to distribute supplies to families in need.
"The devastating effects of Hurricane Ian have impacted so many communities in Florida,” said Joe LaCopo, Senior Managing Director at OneMain Financial. “Our thoughts are with those who are recovering, and our team is doing what we can to help those in need.”
OneMain has 69 branches and more than 400 team members in Florida. The company services nearly 170,000 customer accounts in the state.
In addition to a possible deferment, the program ensures that eligible borrowers who have contacted a OneMain representative and been accepted into the program do not incur late fees and returned payment fees.
Customers should call 844-791-3990 to discuss assistance options.
