To join us and open an account
Tip: If you are posting, emailing or faxing your membership application to us, please make sure you have completed the certification section of the form and include the required certified copies of your identification.
Switch your regular payments to your new account
Next, fill out the Switch of Regular Payments form by printing it out, or complete it at any Defence Bank branch. This form authorises Defence Bank to get a list of all the regular debits and credits to and from your old bank account, which includes things like your salary, rent, a gym membership or insurance policies.
Decide which regular payments you’d like to switch
Once we have the list of regular payments, we’ll contact you so that you can review it. You then advise us which regular payments you would like to be switched to your new Defence Bank account. We’ll work with your old bank to have these payments switched over to your new account.
