Mortgage Offset Home Loan

A Mortgage Offset facility allows you to accumulate savings in a specific savings account and use that account balance to reduce interest on your Home Loan.

How it works:

Let’s say your Mortgage Offset Home Loan has a balance of… $100,000
and your Mortgage Offset Savings has an account balance of… $10,000
then the amount we use to calculate interest on your Mortgage Offset home loan is: $90,000

The Mortgage Offset Savings account does not earn interest, instead an ‘offset figure’ is calculated on balances of $5,000 or more and this is used to reduce interest payable on the loan. Mortgage Offset Savings account may be accessed at any time by over the counter transactions, periodical payments, direct credits, Internet and Phone Banking.
