In response to the Reserve Bank of Australia’s recent decision to raise the official cash rate, Defence Bank will increase interest rates on a number of our savings, term deposit and home loan products.
These changes include increases of up to 0.50% p.a. across selected savings and term deposit products. It also includes an 8-month term deposit offer of 4.20% p.a. These changes to deposit products are effective 20 February 2023. Defence Bank regularly updates its saving and term deposit rates.
Interest rates increased by 0.25% p.a. for all variable rate home loans, effective from 13 February 2023. Affected home loan members will receive more information on the changes to their rate and repayments in the coming weeks.
