The Financial Claims Scheme (FCS) is an Australian Government scheme that provides protection to deposits in banks, building societies and credit unions in the unlikely event that one of these financial institutions fails. The FCS can only come into effect if it is activated by the Australian Government. Under the FCS, deposits are protected up to a limit of $250,000 for each account holder. The FCS limit of $250,000 is applied to the combined amount of deposits for each account holder. For joint accounts, deposits are shared equally between the account holders. For more information visit www.fcs.gov.au or phone the APRA hotline on 1300 558 849

On our savings accounts that pay bonus interest, bonus interest will be paid dependent on the product that you hold.
Deposits made on the last day of the month must be made by 5.00pm Central Standard time, whether or not it is a business day, to qualify for bonus interest in that month. For details of base and bonus rates on the Online Saver, Bonus Saver and Young Saver accounts please click here.
On interest bearing savings and transaction accounts we calculate interest on the closing daily credit balance of your account from the last day of the previous month to the second to last day of the month for which interest is being credited. If your savings or transaction account has an interest frequency other than monthly, interest is on the closing daily credit balance of your account from the last day of the month interest was previously credited to the second to last day of the month for which new interest is being credited.
