Hi Gloria,


Sorry to hear about your situation. If you make a withdrawal from this account prior to November 1, you’ll pay a $15 fee. We’re not able to provide personal advice or customer service related specifically to your account, so we recommend you contact Bendigo Bank directly for further help.
