To make it easier and simpler to do business with us, we removed the consideration on your share when becoming a member of Great Southern Bank.

As a result, if you paid for your share when you became a member of Great Southern Bank (generally before 7 November 2014), you will be eligible to:

  • exchange your share for a new Great Southern Bank Member Share with a 'nil' consideration; and
  • request a refund of your member share consideration - the amount you paid on joining

Your new nil consideration member share gives you the same rights and benefits as before. By remaining an active member of Great Southern Bank you can vote at our Annual General Meeting (AGM) and have a say in our governance.

Request a refund or make a donation

You can choose how you'd like your member share consideration refunded. Options include:

  • Donate to a charity partner chosen by Great Southern Bank.
  • Refund the amount into your Great Southern Bank transaction account
  • Receive a cash refund in branch
