COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, is top of mind for many of us now. Australian Unity is continuing to take this situation very seriously and understand that this period of uncertainty has a significant impact on our customers’ personal and financial wellbeing.
Being a bank for good means we are focused on listening to our customers’ needs and providing great products and services. But it also means understanding that life sometimes throws things at you and that your bank should be there to help you through those times.
To demonstrate our commitment to the wellbeing of our customers who are impacted by the current situation we have developed a range of financial assistance options which may include:
- The ability to temporarily pause repayments on loans, including credit cards
- Temporary interest rate relief on lending for customers experiencing financial distress
- Early access to term deposits without incurring any fees
