OneWest Bank is a California-based bank that provides personal and business depository products and loans. On its personal banking side, OneWest offers checking, savings, and money market accounts, along with CDs and IRA CDs.
Its checking account offerings are limited in availability to Southern California residents and have minimum balance requirements in order to avoid monthly fees. One checking account offers more competitive rates to customers who want to maintain higher account balances. Each checking account option comes with a fee debit card and online banking access. One of OneWest Bank’s savings account offerings comes with a debit card and one does not. Both savings account options feature variable rates and free access to online banking. A money market account is available and comes with limited check writing privileges. Both savings and money market account options offer increasing rates of interest as account balances get higher. CDs are available with term lengths ranging from 3 months to 5 years, and generally offer interest rates above the national average.
OneWest Bank online banking gives users access to up to six months of account history, fund transfer capabilities, Bill Pay, and financial management tools like Quicken.
OneWest Bank was established in 2009 through an acquisition of the assets and liabilities of IndyMac Federal Bank from the FDIC. The bank is headquartered in Pasadena, California, just outside of Los Angeles and serves its customers through multiple branch locations in the Southern California area.
The worst bank to work and bank at. One of their top executives was terminated by Wells Fargo for unethical practices and now she's running the bank...scary. Now they have been sanctioned by the regulators for unsafe practices in their loan servicing. OneWest continues to sponsor the Lakers after Kobe Bryant's racial slur. They should change their name to One Wells Bank.
Your paltry earnings probably will probably be less than the annual fee and closing fee when you try to get your money back. Leaving? Gotcha! Net earning from this safe investment could be a loss.
First, they charge $30.00 a Year "maintenance" Fee on an IRA CD.
Then they charge $25.oo to give you your money back when the IRA CD matures
and on top of that they charge an additional $13.11 "Premature Distribution Charge" on a ""Matured ""$5000.00 IRA CD if
you are under 65 years of age when you roll the """Matured""" Funds over to another institution.
I wonder if this "Premature Distribution Charge" is legal?

I opened an account with OneWest Bank in 2010 and have been experiencing nothing positive but destructive and retaliatory conduct from the bank after I reported the unethical, barbaric and bullying conduct to the bank's management. The bank condoned the bully Franchesca Gangalang who coerced all of her staff to harass me more.
1. The bank documents spelled my name wrong and the branch manager Moises Ortega refused to be accountable for his errors including making phony promises that he never delivered.
2. The bank overpaid the merchant's charges thru my debit card without my authorization. When I disputed it, the bank refused to refund the overpaid amount and refused to produce any evidence of my signature to support the overpayment; the bank has stolen money from my account to pay the merchant without my consent.
3. Then the bank maliciously closed my account for retaliation after I reported the bank's outrageous and unethical banking operations to the Comptroller of the Currency.
Today, after the bank willfully closed my account, the bank has not returned the remaining balance of my account for over 40 days. The bank's president Joseph Otting is careless. The bank has victimized me with its fraud, deceit, bad faith, unlawful and unethical banking operations. All the other victims should join hands to report OneWest Bank to the Comptroller of the Currency and to the District Attorney to prosecute such a racist and evil bank.

OneWest Bank has $24.22 billion in assets with $4.21 billion in equity, resulting in a capitalization level of 17.36%, which is excellent.
