Frequently Asked Questions

An offset account may be a good way to reduce the interest amount you pay on your loan. If you have a variable rate Expect More Home Loan, you’ll be able to link to a full offset account. Your home loan interest will be calculated on the difference between your loan balance and the daily balance held in your offset account.

Plus, your offset account is available for use as a transaction account where you can deposit your salary and link it to a Visa Debit card.

 

If you’ve made additional repayments to your home loan, you can withdraw extra money that’s  available on your account.

You can redraw from your additional repayments via Internet Banking, or by visiting your nearest branch.

Please note that in-branch redraws may attract a fee, depending on the home loan product you hold. In-branch redraws have a minimum amount of $2,000.

You can make additional repayments to your loan, which will then be available for redraw if you need to use the extra money later on. Please note that fixed rate home loans have a $10,000 maximum extra repayment limit per year, without incurring any penalties or break costs. 

You can apply to receive a Pre-Approval for the following loans:
