One of the key factors in calculating interest rates for term deposits is the Reserve Bank of Australia’s (RBA) official cash rate. As these move up or down, we generally pass on the difference.

It is important to note, however, that we regularly review our term deposit rates to stay competitive for our members – sometimes irrespective of the RBA’s cash rate.  

For a full list of our Term Deposit Account rates, view our Downloads page or Deposit Rates Schedule.

The CD BSB number is 514-179.

BSB numbers are used in Australia to identify your institution’s bank branch. Used in conjunction with your account number, a BSB number tells us where your account is located. You will need your BSB and bank account number whenever you wish to receive money from, or send money to, other accounts (including direct debits).

 Any existing customers using BSB 804-002 please be advised this is still valid and active, however we recommend you use BSB 514-179 going forward.
