Why are we making these changes?

  • Since May 2022 the RBA has announced several increases to the official cash rate. As the cash rate is one factor that affects our cost of funds, we’ve decided to increase our personal loan variable interest rates from 1 March 2024.

Support for personal loan customers

We have a range of options and resources to help you with managing your personal loan and planning ahead.

Manage your loan anywhere, anytime – With NetBank and the CommBank app, you can keep track of your loan and stay up to date

  • View your loan balance
  • View your loan statements as far back as seven years
  • Make extra repayments from linked accounts

Make repayments using direct debit

  • Direct debit saves you time and effort by automating your loan repayments. Once set up, your repayments will automatically be transferred from your selected account by the due date so you’re not charged any late fees.
  • You can set up or change a direct debit from your CommBank account by visiting a branch or calling us on 13 1431. If you’d like to set up a direct debit from another financial institution, just visit your nearest branch.

Paying your personal loan off sooner
