Although we have Australia’s largest on-base branch network, you don’t need a special pass to enjoy face-to-face banking at one of our branches. These days, however, you don’t need to go on base at all because ‘all things’ banking can be done through our award-winning app, Online Banking and telephone banking, with the support of our Australia-based Contact Centre team.

Power of Attorney information.

There are many benefits for the partner of someone in the Defence community to join us. Everyday banking and loan repayments are more streamlined if both of you are on board, and we understand the unique needs of loved ones when it comes to ADF lifestyle events, like training requirements and deployment. With a great range of financial options and knowledgeable, Australia-based support, welcome to Australia’s Defence Bank.

Being a part of this community means we’ve got your back.

Defence people have each other’s backs, making them an incredible source of support and information for partners and loved ones of those who serve. With over 30% of our frontline employees having a direct link to ADF members themselves, you’ll easily find a like-minded someone to speak to, even if it’s simply someone when you call our service centre who just gets it.

From our support of the Defence Community Dogs program for veterans, our affiliation with the Military Wives Network to support those at home, to our strong relationship with the Department of Defence, there’s no shortage of support within the broader Defence community.

For whatever you need, for whatever’s ahead.

As the bank for the Defence community, we offer exclusive products developed specifically for Defence families and the unique lifestyle they find themselves.

As Australia’s Defence Bank we are an approved lender of the Defence Home Ownership Assistance Scheme (DHOAS), which offers special mortgage rebates to Defence families.

All of our products are developed with Defence families in mind, from easy international payments for those on deployment to accounts tailored to the needs of ADF members.

And if your partner has been deployed or is a long-serving member in uniform coming up on a key career milestone, they might be eligible for our high interest-earning Salute account. It’s our way of saying ‘ thank you’.
