Consider returning to reduced repayments

If you have a variable rate loan, you may be able to change your loan which may reduce your repayments (please note this is not applicable if you have a Bank of Melbourne Portfolio Loan).

For example, you could consider either or both of the following options:

  • switch to a Fixed Rate that is lower than your current variable rate. Find out more
  • switch to Interest Only repayments for 12 months - this will temporarily reduce your repayments as you will only be paying the interest portion of your repayment. Please note your loan repayments will increase at the end of the interest only period. Find out more

If you would like to discuss these options with one of our Home Loan Specialists, please complete the form in the COVID-19 Support Hub in online banking and we’ll contact you to understand your current circumstances and the assistance options that may be available to you. You can also visit the COVID-19 Customer Support page to further understand your options.
