Australians with a home loan through Heritage Bank can use their everyday banking balance to reduce their monthly payments. A 100% offset account is a transaction account where the entire balance is deducted from the principal of your home loan before interest is applied. By lowering the amount of your loan, you effectively lower the amount of interest due to the bank each month.

How to apply

Eligibility

Before you can apply for the Heritage Bank Mortgage Crusher, you need to be a home loan customer with Heritage Bank and fill out an Offset Account Link form. This form can be accessed on their website, but there are also other eligibility requirements you should be aware of first:

  • Home loan type. The 100% offset account is only offered to customers with the standard variable home loan. If you have a different loan product or a personal loan with Heritage Bank you may want to consider the Loan Offset account instead. This is not a 100% offset account, but it does take a percentage of your balance off of your principal mortgage amount.
  • Membership number. Your Mortgage Crusher Account and standard variable home loan must both be held under the same membership number.
