If you’re applying for a Term Deposit with two or more applicants, any one of the applicants will be able to operate the account on their own (also known as ‘Either to sign’ operation). This means that any account holder can transact on the account without the permission of other account holders.

If you’d like a different mode of operation applied to your new account, please contact us on 13 95 00 (Mon – Fri, 9:30am – 5pm AEST) to discuss your needs.

For existing accounts, the early redemption notice period applies if you have reinvested your Term Deposit from 15 December 2021.
