    Typically, it takes 4 working days for a cheque deposit to be cleared, and the funds should be available to you on the 5th working day.

  • What features should I look for in a savings account?

    The most important thing to look for in a savings account is a competitive interest rate. Some accounts offer bonus interest payments if regular deposits and no withdrawals are made, which can be motivating to keep the money set aside until you’ve reached your savings goal. It's also important to make sure the account doesn’t have a monthly fee, because if it does it will slowly eat away at your savings. Plan how you will use the account and look for an account with features that suit you.

  • What features should I look for in an everyday account?

    Many everyday accounts have a range of fee free options; however, some accounts may charge monthly fees or fees for certain types of transactions. You should look for an account that suits your transaction and access needs that has minimal or no ongoing fees and charges to keep more of your money in your pocket (or in this case, in your account).

  • What's the difference between a term deposit and a savings account?

    With a savings account, you can add to and withdraw from it as you please. There can be some restrictions around the interest payable if you make withdrawals, however you can access the money in the account whenever it suits you. Interest rates on these accounts are generally variable and subject to change at any time.

    With term deposits, an amount of your choosing (usually a minimum amount of $5,000) is locked away for a set period of time at a fixed interest rate. These rates can often be higher than a standard savings account, however the money cannot be accessed until the fixed term is over. If you choose to break the term to access the funds early, the interest payments will often be forfeited.

  • Why should I open a savings account?

    Having a dedicated savings account separate from your everyday account can make it easier for you to stick to your savings goals. Savings accounts don’t usually come with card access, so it’s not as easy to withdraw the funds, and it also gives the account an added layer of security. They usually have a higher interest rate than everyday accounts and sometimes reward regular deposits and limited withdrawals.

  • Why get an everyday account?

    Everyday accounts usually come with a range of low-cost access options such as a Visa Debit or ATM card for EFTPOS payments and ATM withdrawals, as well as access to services such as BPAY and Internet Banking, making them a convenient account to manage regular incoming payments and outgoing expenses.

  • What is an everyday account?

    An everyday account, also known known as a transaction account, is a bank account you can use for day to day access to your money. It's a convenient account for receiving regular payments such as your pay or benefits, as well as for making payments for things like fuel, groceries and daily expenses.

  • How much money do I need to open a term deposit?

    The minimum amount required to open a term deposit account with P&N Bank is $5,000, and the shortest term available is two months.
