Improve the identification of your accounts by giving them simple names

Rename your accounts at any time

Did you know you can rename your accounts at any time using internet banking? To better organise and identify your accounts you can give them simple names, such as 'Groceries' or 'Rent', or you can name them after your specific goals like 'House Deposit' or 'Wedding'.

To personalise an account name:

  1. Log into internet banking
  2. Click 'Account Options' in the top menu, and choose ‘Personalise Account Names’. 
  3. Highlight an account in the list by clicking on the round button that’s in line with the account you want to rename, and then enter a new name in the input box underneath labelled 'Enter your Personalised Account Name'. Do not enter the word "account" in your new account name as it is not needed and will be automatically removed. Maximum length of the account name is 22 characters.
  4. After entering the new name, simply click on Save and then Finish to exit the menu.

Please note, the bank’s official records for the name of the account will not change. For payment purposes use the official name of your membership.
