Our verdict

New Australian Defence Force recruits can benefit by opening this everyday banking account that offers interest too.

This account is for new Defence Force recruits only, and is designed to give new recruits a bit of a financial helping hand. It’s a transaction account that also pays 1.05% interest on your balance for the first four months. Earning interest on a transaction account that offers 24/7 access to your money with a linked Visa Debit Card is really rare.

Note that there is a $0 monthly account fee, but this is waived if you deposit a month.

If you’re not a new recruit, you can take a look at the Military Rewards Accountinstead. This doesn’t pay any interest, but you do earn 1% cashback on tap and go purchases under $100, up to the value of $25 a month.


  • 24 hour access to funds through Internet Banking
  • Linked Visa debit card
  • No monthly account fee if you meet deposit requirements


  • Only available for members
