COVID-19 Customer information

Staying safe

As the NSW COVID-19 outbreak unfolds, we’ve put measures in place to ensure the wellbeing of our customers and staff.

  • Branch operating hours - Until further notice, all Greater Bank branches within the Greater Sydney area (Mona Vale, Penrith, The Entrance, Erina, Lake Haven, Toukley, Tuggerah, Woy Woy, Corrimal, Dapto, Figtree, Nowra and Shellharbour) as well as our Orange branch will commence altered trading hours of 9:00am – 1:00pm weekdays, closing Saturdays and Sundays.
  • Mask mandate - All our branch staff will be wearing masks across our branch network, and we’ll be asking all customers visiting a branch to do the same.
  • In-branch safety - We’ll be asking all customers visiting our branches to check in via QR code using the Service NSW app, as well as sanitising upon entry, and adhering to the one person per 4 square metre rule.
  • Bank from home - If you’re feeling unwell, or have recently visited a known hotspot, please bank safely from home using online banking, our app, or by calling our contact centre on 13 13 86.

We’ll continue to keep our customers up to date with any further changes, and we encourage everyone to stay safe and monitor the latest information, guidelines and hotspots from NSW Health.

How we are keeping you safe

We’re taking steps to minimise the risk of exposure in our local communities by:

Proper Hygiene

We're increasing the frequency of cleaning and sanitisation in our branches and of our ATMs, as well as providing hand sanitiser in branch

Phone appointments

Conducting appointments over the phone rather than face-to-face where possible

Looking after you and our people

To keep you and our employees safe, we're limiting the number of customers in-branch and complying with social distancing guidelines

Contactless Payments

Contactless payment limits have been increased from $100 to $200

What relief options can Greater Bank provide?

Using advance funds on a loan (if available) to take a ‘repayment holiday’

Payment arrangement
Deferring or reducing repayments for an agreed period of time

Yes, interest will continue to accrue which will affect the loan balance.

At the end of the pause period, you will recommence making your normal monthly repayment. If your loan balance has increased due to interest charges we will factor in that amount next time we make a change to your repayments to ensure you pay your loan off in the remaining term.
