If you’re separating from your partner, we can assist you with options to make changes to any joint accounts.

Setting up your own banking

It’s pretty straightforward to set up your own banking.

We can: 

  • set up your own accounts 
  • help you close any joint accounts
  • update your details so statements and bank information is sent to a private address or email address
  • update your passwords and account security so only you can access them.

Joint account settings

If you decide to keep your joint account so you can manage some of your finances together, it’s good to know the options available to you. 

With our joint accounts, the default ‘setting’ is that both of you don’t need to approve each transaction. You can access, deposit and withdraw from the joint account whenever you like. 

If you prefer, we can change it around so that you both must authorise transactions. 

Financial impacts of separation

If you’re experiencing financial difficulty, we can help you figure out what to do. Learn what’s involved in applying for financial hardship support.
