Cheques and Bank cheques

Access to cheque funds

Once you deposit a cheque, the funds are normally available after three business days. If you require access to your funds earlier than this, you can request a 'special answer', for a fee,  from the branch when you deposit the cheque. Depending on the answer, funds will be available within 1 - 2 business days.

Stopping a cheque

If you write a cheque and want to stop the payment, you can:

  • Call us on 132 032
  • Visit any branch immediately.

Bank cheques

Westpac bank cheques are a safe alternative to carrying large amounts of cash and they’re accepted as a secure form of payment. We can draw bank cheques for you at our branches, even if you don’t have an account with us.
