Commonwealth Bank donates $500,000 to Queensland Flood Appeal 2013

Reaffirms Disaster Assistance Support for Customers and the Broader Community

Commonwealth Bank Chief Executive Officer Ian Narev today advised that in addition to specific measures already announced to assist customers in Queensland, the Group will donate $500,000 to support the Queensland Flood Appeal 2013.

Mr Narev said, "Cyclone Oswald and weather events across Queensland have had a significant impact on many people and communities around the state.

We are already seeing Queenslanders once again uniting to clean up the damage caused by a natural disaster, and to rebuild. We want to support those efforts in a tangible way. Our donation of $500,000 will provide a direct boost for impacted communities."

Mr Narev reaffirmed Commonwealth Bank’s commitment to assist customers impacted by the disaster with a range of support initiatives.

"The Group has invoked its Emergency Assistance Package, which offers personal and business customers of CBA and CommInsure a range of options to assist with their banking, insurance and general financial needs during these difficult times."

"Our team is on the ground and supporting our customers and we encourage those affected to discuss their individual circumstances with us."

For customer assistance or hardship enquiries call 1300 720 814 or for general banking enquiries ring 13 2221.
