Becoming A Member

Each person joining Geelong Bank is required to purchase a share at $10. Your share is fully refundable should you close your membership with Geelong Bank.

Financial institutions must apply procedures to prove your identity when you open a new savings, investment or loan account or become a signatory to an account.

On these occasions, Geelong Bank will need to complete a check of your identity. This procedure will occur once only and will involve verifying your full name, date of birth and residential address.

These procedures are part of the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism Financing Act 2006 (Cth), which is designed to help prevent people from using the financial system for tax evasion, money laundering and the financing of terrorism.

Geelong Bank supports this Australia-wide effort to fight crime and will do everything it can to make these procedures as smooth as possible for members.

With friendly, caring service combined with strength and security for peace of mind, Geelong Bank really is a better banking alternative!
