Hi Ben,

The ME Term Deposit is for personal use only and must be opened by an individual. Instead, you should be able to open the ME Business Term Deposit which is available to companies, trusts, and associations.

Can I put a power of attorney on this online account for a family member?


Alison Banney Finder

January 28, 2022

Hi Miri,

If you have been assigned as power of attorney for a ME customer, you’ll need to send a few documents before they can register your power of attorney account access, including the power of attorney document and identification.

For more details and advice based on your personal situation and account, we highly recommend that you get in touch with ME directly.
