Figure offers personal loans to borrowers with good credit. Depending on where you live, loan amounts can be up to $50,000, which is higher than some of its competitors in the personal loans space. Low APRs that start at 5.75 percent are available to creditworthy borrowers who are eligible for and select three-year repayment terms.
Those interested in obtaining Figure personal loans can get prequalified online first. Prequalification doesn’t require a hard credit pull, so it won’t impact your credit. If you’d like to get extra funds to use toward whatever you like, Figure offers a personal loan referral program that gives you and those you refer each a $150 gift card once their loan funds (not valid for residents of Kentucky, Ohio or Rhode Island).

- Origination fee may apply: Depending on the state you live in, the loan origination fee can be up to 3 percent of your loan amount.

Figure offers personal loans that range from $5,000 to $50,000, though the minimum and maximum amounts you’re eligible for depend on your credit profile and the state you live in (loans are not available in Mississippi). These loans carry a fixed annual percentage rate (APR) of 5.75 percent to 22.94 percent2 if you opt for autopay, which reduces your APR by 0.25 percent.
Your APR hinges on how creditworthy you are. To determine this, Figure looks at your credit score, credit inquiries, credit utilization and debt-to-income ratio. Your repayment term also can impact your APR. Loan repayment terms are either three or five years. If you’re eligible for a three-year term, you can lock in the lowest rates.
To be eligible for a personal loan through Figure, you’ll need to be employed (unless you’re retired) and have a valid U.S. ID, a FICO credit score of at least 680 and a debt-to-income ratio below 40 percent (not including housing expenses). If you have had Figure loans in the past, you must be in good standing on those loans.
Fees and penalties
Figure charges an origination fee that’s up to 3 percent of your loan amount. The fee depends on the state you live in. If you decide to pay the loan off early, there are no prepayment fees.
