Get rewarded for your savings as well as your credit card

Make your money work harder

Pay off your credit card balance monthly? Earn interest on your money until your payment is due. Make as many withdrawals as you need and still earn bonus interest1

It’s easy to earn bonus interest

In addition to a competitive base rate, you can also earn bonus interest each month you grow your balance, no matter how many withdrawals you’ve made1.

Bucket your savings

Saving for more than one thing? With our handy Savings Goals2 feature you can bucket your savings into different goals within the one account.

Easy access with an everyday account

Transfer easily in and out of your Life account with a linked Westpac Choice account3 (if you don’t already have one we’ll open one for you).

Earn up to 1.30% p.a. variable interest rate

0.40% p.a.

Standard variable base rate
(when no standard variable bonus rate applies)

Variable bonus rate each month you grow your balance1

Earning bonus interest is easy

You’ll earn bonus interest each month you grow your balance by the last business day of the month and make at least one deposit into your account.

You’ll also earn interest on every dollar on your account, because Westpac Life has no maximum balance you can earn interest on. You can also make as many transfers from your account as you need during the month and still earn bonus interest, provided you meet the conditions above.

What else do I need to know?

Westpac Life has no set up or monthly services fees. Other fees and charges may apply. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions. You’ll need a linked Westpac everyday account – if you don’t have one we’ll open a Westpac Choice account with your Life account3.

We’ll waive the Choice monthly service fee when you deposit at least $2,000 into your account. We’ll also waive the monthly service fee if you’re:

  • An Australian Pensioner Concession or Health Care Card holder
  • New to Australia or an expatriate customer
  • A fulltime student or under 21
