Help & support
We’ll use a number of contact methods such as email, post, SMS, NetBank and the CommBank app. All of them ask you to confirm your details securely in NetBank or the CommBank app, which helps protect your personal information. To be safe, always navigate directly to NetBank yourself and log on from the site you know to be legitimate. Find out more about how to check if a message is legitimate.
You’ll need to confirm your full name, other names known by (if any), date of birth, residential address, occupation, source of wealth and citizenship information.
If you have a business banking product with us, you’ll need to confirm your business name and entity details, business address, and industry information.
We need you to update your personal details with us whenever they change. We’ll also need to confirm your personal information from time to time as part of our ongoing regulatory obligations to ensure your details are complete, current and accurate.
Laws and regulations need to change with the times to reflect societal changes and emerging threats. We are required to manage your account/s in line with the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006, which sets out that all banks operating within Australia are required to collect, verify and maintain customer identification information. In the same way that we need to comply with regulations when you first open an account, we also need to comply with current law regarding the maintenance of your customer identification information.
We’ll be contacting more than 16 million customers to confirm their details, so it’s possible that other members of your household might be contacted at a different time to you.
If you don’t confirm your personal and/or business details, we may need to restrict access to your digital banking and potentially your account/s until you do. We’ll let you know about this at least 30 days before any restrictions would apply. Please ensure we have updated contact details so we can reach you with this important message.

As long as there are enough funds to cover the automatic payment/s, then these will still continue as scheduled.
As long as there are enough funds in your account/s, you’ll still be able to use your credit and debit cards and all digital wallet types (Android, Samsung, Fitbit, Garmin and ApplePay) to access funds.
A restricted account means you won’t be able to fully transact on your account/s as normal.

Please be aware that any scheduled transactions, direct debits or regular payments may not be processed. Any regular fees and charges may still apply to your account/s. Refer to your product terms and conditions for more information.
You’ll need to confirm your details in NetBank or the CommBank app. Log on to NetBank or the CommBank app, where you’ll see a notification from us to check and confirm your details. Once you’ve confirmed your details, your digital banking access will be unlocked and/or the restriction on your account/s will be lifted immediately.
Find your nearest branch.
To avoid missing any scheduled transactions, direct debits or regular payments while your account/s is restricted, you’ll need to make other arrangements until we have confirmation of your personal and/or business details and your account/s is reactivated.
If you’ve organised a direct debit or regular payment with a merchant, you’ll need to contact them to arrange another payment option.
