Login or register for online banking, provide us with your details and we’ll be in contact. We can help with your Home Loan, Credit Cards, Personal and Flexi Loans or if you’re a business customer. Of course, you can call our Customer Care team to talk and work through your situation.
For our existing COVID-19 Support customers, we’re here to help manage your next steps.
Help over the holiday period for customers impacted by COVID-19
We understand the difficulties that COVID-19 has created for many customers. Our Customer Assist team is available to help customers over the holiday period, but please note we may experience higher than normal call volumes which could result in some delays.
Our Customer Assist Team will close at 8pm EDST Thursday 24 December 2020 and will re-open 8am EDST Tuesday 29 December 2020. We will also be closed on Fri 1 January 2021 and Tues 26 January 2021.
Our operating hours for all other days will be:
Mon-Sat 8am-8pm EDST
If you are currently on a Covid Package or would like to request help due to COVID-19 for the first time, please complete the form in the COVID-19 Support Hub in online banking and we’ll contact you to understand your current circumstances and the assistance options that may be available to you. You can also visit the COVID-19 Customer Support page to further understand your options. Please note the 2020 Support Package is no longer available, however we can help with a tailored solution to support you getting back on track.
Please be aware it may take up to 10 business days for us to call you back. If you have a repayment due in the meantime, please don’t worry, we can discuss the options available when we call you.
We hope that all our customers and their families remain safe during this challenging time.
