Access & Inclusion
Our accessibility statement
Westpac is committed to providing accessible products, services and collateral for customers with disability.
To meet the accessibility needs of our customers, we're continually testing and improving our websites, striving to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 AA and AAA where feasible. We also do our best to ensure our products, services and collateral are created, reviewed, and tested, ensuring customers can independently access them. To find out more, read or listen to 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. If you know your 8-digit Customer ID and 3-digit Access Code or account information please have it ready to enable our friendly Customer Care representatives to 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.
Communicating with us
If you rely on Auslan for an in-depth financial conversation, our Customer Service team can arrange an Auslan interpreter to attend your preferred branch or virtually at the arranged date and time, subject to availability of an interpreter.
Telephone banking and interpreter service
Prefer a language other than English? We can help.

Simply ask our bank staff for an interpreter when you call us on 13 20 32.
Additional languages on our ATMs
We have made our ATMs easier to use for customers who may prefer a language other than English. Our ATMs offer 9 additional languages for our customers, enabling them to make a financial transaction on our Westpac, St.George, BOM and BankSA ATMs.
