Deposits are exclusive to individuals. Defence Bank offers standard (available at all times) and premium (an occasionally offered special rate on non-standard period) terms. Interest rates and terms on offer may change at any time without notice.

Gross rate of interest before deduction of government earnings tax.

Interest is calculated on the daily balance. Interest is paid on the date of maturity. Where terms exceed 12 months, interest is capitalised annually. Interest payable in respect of the last 12 months or part thereof is added to the balance at maturity.

Unless advised otherwise, the interest earned on your term deposit will be re-invested with your principal deposit. If the same term is no longer available, then the re-investment will be for the standard term closest to the original term.

All term deposit rates are for amounts up to $1 million. For larger amounts please contact us to discuss your options.

Our term deposits are part of the Government Deposit Guarantee (Financial Claims Scheme).

Business term deposits are exclusive to: sole traders, corporates (including corporate trustees), individual trustees, partnerships, incorporated associations (not-for-profits organisations and clubs).
