Access & Inclusion
Our accessibility statement
Westpac is committed to providing accessible products and services for customers with disability.
To meet the accessibility needs of our customers, we're continually testing and improving our websites and striving to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA. We also do our best to ensure our products and services are also reviewed and tested, ensuring our customers can access them independently. To find out more, read our Access and Inclusion Plan.
If you want to chat with a Customer Care representative, call us on 13 20 32 8am – 8pm Sydney Time, 7 days from anywhere in Australia.
If you have a vision impairment or have mobility issues using smart devices, you can get in touch with our Customer Care team on (02) 9155 7714. Please have your 8-digit Customer ID and 3-digit Access Code or account information on hand so our friendly Customer Care representative can help you.
If you are deaf and/or find it hard hearing or speaking with people who use a phone, you can reach us through the National Relay Service (NRS). You will need to register with the NRS prior to utilising their service.
