General

eStatements are stored securely within Online Banking so you're protected against identity and mail theft that can be associated with paper statements. You’ll receive an email notification when the statement is available in Online Banking where you’ll need to sign in to view your statements. Visit Westpac ProtectTM for further information including Westpac’s Online Banking Security Guarantee and information on SMS Protect.


Please note that any opened eStatement windows might remain on certain types of mobile devices after you have been logged out of the session (ensure you close the PDF statement after you've finished viewing).

Make sure you always keep your Online Banking password secure. In order to protect your account information, you also need to make sure you close all windows that have been opened to display your eStatements.


Viewing the eStatement on a mobile device may make it available after you have signed out of Online Banking. When you sign out of Online Banking, please make sure you close any eStatements windows that are still open.

You can view up to 7 years of statement history in your Online Banking.

Yes, the PDF eStatement will look the same as your paper statement and it’s legally acceptable. Even for record keeping purposes, you can save and print your eStatements in the same format as a paper statement.

Eligibility 

To be eligible for eStatements, you need to

  1. You need to be registered for Online Banking.

In some cases, eStatements aren’t available for all products so you’ll still receive paper statements. This could be because your account statement preferences are linked to a mortgage account in an offset arrangement, or there’s a permanent overdraft on the account. See our FAQ: What accounts are eligible for eStatements?

Joint account customers are now able to receive eStatements. If you’re a joint account holder and you decide to receive eStatements, your statement preference won’t impact other account holders, as statement settings are now based on individual needs.
