How do I apply for a joint account?

Here’s how to do it

If you have an existing joint account with us (like a home loan, credit card or transaction account), you can apply for a new joint transaction or savings account by calling 13 17 19.

If you have a joint Complete Home Loan Package and would like to open an offset account, you can in the Bankwest App. Tap ‘Open or browse products’ from the ‘Home’ or ‘More’ screens.​

If you don’t have an existing account, you’ll both need to visit us in your nearest branch so we can identify you in person (WA only). Don’t worry – you don’t have to come in at the same time or to the same branch, we can work around you.

How do joint accounts work?

With a joint transaction or savings account, both people will have full access to the account and the money in it.

When you set it up, you can determine whether you want just one or both parties to authorise things like transfers, withdrawals and closing the account.
