    If you are a holder of a consession card do you have to put your income/pension into the account or can you just save a little each pay into this account and have your income/pension into another institution? Thankyou.

      Hi Heath,

      Thanks for getting in touch with finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

      The St.George Concession Account allows you to link your concession account to a Visa debit card. This means that the St. George Concession Account would have access to your concession account. What you can do is withdraw money using the Visa debit card and then transfer it to another institution.

      St. George’s website doesn’t have a specific answer to your question. Thus, it would also be a good idea to directly get in touch with them to obtain a more personalised advice.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Joshua
