When will the variable home loan interest rate change happen?
The 0.15% p.a. rate reduction will apply from 29 November 2020.
Will my repayments reduce automatically?
Depending on how your repayments have been set up, they may reduce when the new lower interest rate takes effect. If there’s a change to your repayment, we’ll send you a letter to let you know what your new repayment will be.
Keep a look out for a letter that will be sent to you, which will outline more information on your new repayment details.
I am already on a fixed interest rate, will I receive the discount?
Once your fixed interest period ends, your home loan will switch to the variable interest rate applicable at that time.
Info and key dates for savings customers
When are these savings rate changes effective?
Our savings rate changes will be effective, for new and existing customers, from 13 November 2020.
Why are the effective dates for savings and home loan rate changes different?
The difference in timing is due to the tailored nature of a home loan and the communication required to existing customers whose loan repayments may change. Fixed rate home loan changes can be made sooner as changes don’t impact existing customers. A savings account is a simpler proposition so we can implement changes more quickly. We’re committed to continuing to offer competitive rates in the market and balancing the needs of all our customers as we make those decisions.
What support is there for Home Loan customers impacted by COVID-19?
We have options available to support our home loan customers, including a Home Loan Repayment Pause for those customers who have been financially impacted by COVID-19. Click here for more info.
