What is an offset account?

It’s an everyday transaction account that’s linked to your home loan. 

Why have an offset account?

The entire balance in your account is offset against your home loan balance before your loan interest is calculated. It helps to reduce the amount of interest you pay on your home loan.

Which home loans is it for?

Benefits of the offset

  • Reduces the interest on your home loan
  • Account can be linked to a Visa Debit card
  • Add to digital wallet for payments on your mobile

How do I get an offset?
