Defence Bank understands that being away on deployment can bring with it a number of challenges. While you're deployed, the last thing you and your family want to worry about are your finances. Before you leave for deployment, stop by your local Defence Bank branch for a free pre-deployment appointment. Our friendly staff can help you make it easier to manage your money while you’re away.
While you’re deployed, it’s a good time to get your money working for you, so you can reward yourself when you return home. Defence Bank has a range of accounts that can help you save faster, like an iSaver account and Term Deposits.
Before you leave
Have a think about how you might need to access your money while you’re overseas. A True Blue Credit Card or Visa Debit Card provide worldwide access to your money. Also think about if foreign currency or a Multi-currency Cash Passport will be useful.
If you will be leaving behind any assets, like a house with contents, car or boat, think about if you’ll need insurance. Our friendly branch staff can help you out with insurance that will protect these items while you’re away.
When you're home again
Don’t forget to stop by your local branch so we can welcome you home. Once you’ve settled back in, it’s a great time to take advantage of your deployment pay and put yourself on the path to financial security and success.
