To register for Telebanker, simply call us on 133 282, or visit your local branch and we’ll set you up.

What you’ll need to begin

  • Your Great Southern Bank customer number
  • A telephone access code (TAC). If you don’t have a TAC or you’ve forgotten it, call us on 133 282 or drop into your local branch.

What happens next

When you call 133 282, Telebanker will prompt you for your customer number and then your TAC. Key in these numbers using the buttons on your telephone keypad.

Once logged in, you’ll immediately hear your preferred account balance or it will default to your oldest account. If you want to hear another account, you can ask us to update it for you.

You’ll then be given a list of options. Simply tell Telebanker what you want. Remember, for each instruction you give the system, you’ll need to specify the name of the account and the type of enquiry or transaction you want to carry out.

For example:
“What is the balance of my savings account?”
“Can I have the last 10 transactions for my Everyday Account?”
“Tell me the last five cheques on my savings account.”
“I’d like to transfer $200 from my savings account to my holiday account.”
“I’d like to pay a bill.”
“I’d like to change my TAC.”

Key words to use are:
“List options” - to return to the main menu at any time
“Repeat” - to repeat the last instruction or option
“Go back” - to return to the previous instruction or option
“Help” - to obtain help using the system
“Goodbye”- to exit the system at any time

Telebanker is sensitive to background noise, so it’s best to find a quiet, private place to call.

Name your account

For easy reference, you can personalise the name of your accounts. Select from the following options:

Note: If you have chosen your own customised account name, Telebanker will not recognise this name and you will need to say or enter the account number on every occasion to access your account information.

Holiday Daily Expenses
Property Account Splurge
Education Smile
Bills Fire Extinguisher
Rent Mojo

Paying bills

Once you’ve told Telebanker you want to pay a bill, you’ll be prompted for the ‘biller code’ and ‘customer reference number’ which are printed on your bill. Have these handy so you can key them in using your telephone keypad.

Once the payment is complete, you’ll be given a receipt number. It’s a good idea to keep a record of this.

You can arrange to pay bills up to one year in advance and check future payments you’ve set up previously on Telebanker. Select ‘future payments’ from the option menu and follow the prompts.

Stay secure

Remember your TAC is similar to a personal identification number (PIN). Store it in your memory – don’t write it down or give it to anyone else. When Telebanker prompts you for your TAC, always use the telephone keypad to enter it.

If you think someone knows your TAC, change it immediately on Telebanker by selecting the ‘change TAC’ option or by contacting us to request a new TAC.
