Save interest on your home loan.
What is an offset account?
An offset account is used to reduce (or offset) the amount of interest you pay on your home loan. It’s a transaction account that is linked to your home loan. You can make deposits or withdrawals just as you would with an everyday transaction account.
An offset account is an everyday account linked to your home loan, which can help pay off your loan sooner.
Your savings or salary can be paid into it, which will reduce the amount of interest you pay on your home loan.
For example, if your loan balance is $600,000 with $50,000 in your offset account, you will only have to pay interest on the balance of $550,000.
At Bendigo Bank, you can have up to six offset accounts and full offset is available on both fixed and variable home loans with our complete home loan.
Speak to us and see how an offset account could work for you.
If you have a $600,000 variable rate loan without an offset account you would pay interest on the full $600,000. If you have $50,000 in a linked offset account, you would only pay interest on $550,000.
