Getting Started

Our Banking Apps, offer easy, fast, secure banking on the go, and have a range of services to meet your banking needs.

Yes, we have an app for Apple^ and Android mobile devices.

Please note, you will need an iTunes° account to download our App for iPhone^. For Android devices, you will need a Gmail address, or username on a Google hosted domain, to download our app.

Our Banking Apps can be downloaded from our Banking Apps page, which will direct you to either the App Store^ or Google Play.

However, before you log on to our Apps, you’ll need to first log on to Internet Banking through a web browser (on any device) to update your password and set your preferences.

You will need to have either a mobile or Wi-Fi connection to access our Banking Apps. Normal mobile data charges apply. Please check with your mobile carrier for details.

In order to use our Apps, you need to have logged onto Internet Banking via the browser with your Member Number and Password, before you can use our Banking Apps. Once you have selected your Password and accepted the Terms & Conditions, you can log on to our App and set a new Passcode.

Benefits and Features

There is a range of features available via our Banking Apps:

  • Add new Billers and Payees, 
  • Check account balances, 
  • View transaction listings, 
  •  Set-up multiple user profiles, 
  • Transfer funds to third party accounts, 
  • Make bill payments and more.

There are no charges for registering for Internet Banking. All transactions completed using our Apps or Internet Banking, including transfers and BPAY® payments, are all free. It is best to check with your mobile service provider, as data fees may apply.

When you first log on to our App, you will be asked to create a profile name. This can be any name of your choosing, and each device can save up to 3 different profiles. To switch between profiles, tap the left hand menu and tap ‘switch profile’. From here you can edit or delete profiles and register new ones.

If you setup a Quick Balance, which will allow you to swipe left to see your account balance without logging on, you will be shown details for your last logged on profile.

Yes, as with Internet Banking, you are able to enter details of new Payees or Billers. Once you have set up a new Payee or Biller it will continue to appear in the App for future use.

We offer a number of easy-to-use calculators to help you estimate your repayments and how much you could borrow for Personal Loans and Home Loans (subject to approval). To use these calculators, select ‘Tools’ from the hamburger menu.

Most devices are able to view PDF files through a browser window or through the device. While it is also possible to print statements^^ from most devices, this capability is dependent on the availability of a wireless printer and a third party app that supports printing to it.

Yes, you can schedule future dated or recurring payments through our Apps.

If your application for Online Redraw has been approved and your access granted, you can perform redraws via the Apps.  

You will need to have an eligible home loan to set up online redraw. All parties on the loan will need to sign a Redraw Authority Form. Once approved, this authority will allow any borrower on the loan to request an online redraw.

You can access both Internet Banking and our Apps while overseas if you have access to an appropriate mobile phone plan or connection to a Wi-Fi network.

Additional carrier charges may apply during overseas travel. Please refer to your mobile service provider for information on fees or charges.

Please note that certain functions, such as adding new Billers or Payees, transacting over a certain amount or security related activities (such as changing or resetting your password) will require you to enter an SMS Code that has been sent to your device. If you’re not planning on using global roaming to receive SMS, please contact us on 13 19 87 before you go.

Security

Our Apps will automatically log you out after a short period of idle time to reduce the risk of someone else accessing your account if you leave your device unattended.

While this increases the security of our Mobile Banking Apps we do recommend that you use the logout function on the App as soon as you finish your banking session and assign a Passcode for your device.

Yes. You can change your Passcode by:

  1. Open our Banking App on your device,
  2. Navigate to Settings, located in the left-hand menu,
  3. Select ‘Change Passcode’.

Yes, it is just as secure as our Internet Banking service. For security reasons always remember to keep your log on details private.

For further tips and information on how to stay safe on the internet please refer to the Security Advice page.
