FAQs - Managing Your Account

How do I withdraw funds early from a Notice Saver account?


The terms & conditions of your Notice Saver account require that 31, 60 or 90 days' notice is provided to withdraw funds from your account.

To do this, follow the below steps:

1. Log in to Rabobank Online Savings Internet Banking

2. In the ‘My quick links’ menu select ‘My savings'

3. Select ‘Transfer’

If you are experiencing financial hardship and require urgent access to your funds, please contact our team so we can discuss your options.

We may, at our discretion, allow an early withdrawal from a Notice Saver Account based on one of the following grounds:

  • Specified compassionate grounds (to prevent sale of your house by your mortgage holder, or to pay medical, disability or funeral expenses)
  • Grounds of severe financial hardship (for "reasonable immediate family living expenses" including loan repayments, rent arrears, outstanding bills, car repairs and medical expenses)

If these circumstances relate to you, before we are authorised to release your funds we will need to receive documentation that supports your hardship claim, for example, a bank statement, a rental bond agreement, medical documentation related to surgery or other supporting documents.

If you apply for an early release of funds, the statutory declaration must be completed by you and signed by an authorised witness. A list of these witnesses are included on the form. You may also include any supporting documents that you’d like us to take into consideration.

Please post all documents to:

Rabobank Online Savings

GPO Box 4715

Sydney NSW 2001

Once we receive your documentation, we’ll review your request and update you by phone within 2 business days.

If your request is extremely urgent, please don't hesitate to call us on 1800 445 445 or email us at clientservicesAU@rabobank.com

What if I need my money in a hurry and I haven't provided you with the minimum notice required?

Unfortunately we can't release your funds early. You will need to serve a notice period and access your funds at maturity. We recommend that you maintain some funds in an at call account in case you need funds in a hurry.

For customers suffering financial hardship you can apply for early release of your funds. Please note that you will need to complete a statutory declaration as proof of your financial hardship. Please contact our Customer Service team for more information.

What is the minimum notice period that I can provide?

The minimum notice period varies depending on the product selected. The 31 Day Notice Saver has a minimum notice period of 31 days, the 60 day Notice Saver has a minimum notice period of 60 days and the 90 day Notice Saver has a 90 day minimum notice period.

Is Rabobank covered by the Australian Government Guarantee?


Yes, Rabobank is covered by the Australian Government Guarantee through the Government’s Financial Claims Scheme (FCS). This scheme provides protection and quick access to deposits in banks, building societies and credit unions in the unlikely event that one of these financial institutions fails.

Under the FCS, certain deposits are protected up to a limit of $250,000 for each account holder at any bank, building society, credit union or other authorised deposit-taking institution (ADI) that is incorporated in Australia and authorised by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA).

The FCS can only come into effect if it is activated by the Australian Government when an institution fails. Once activated, the FCS will be administered by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA).

In an FCS scenario, APRA would aim to pay the majority of customers their protected deposits under the Scheme within seven calendar days.

Where can I get further information on the FCS?

Information on the FCS is available on the FCS website – www.fcs.gov.au.
