What is my account number?
At Heritage, your account number is your Member Number.
Your account number is the same for all accounts you hold with Heritage, under one membership.
Your BSB is different for each account type you hold with Heritage. BSB stands for Bank State Branch and is a six-digit number that is commonly used to identify a bank and its associated branch in Australia.
At Heritage we use BSB codes a little differently. Rather than assigning a BSB code to each of our Branches, we assigned a BSB to each account type you can hold with us.
For example, our Simply Access Transaction Account has the BSB 638-010 and our Online Saver Savings Account has the BSB 638-260.
When we process payments into or from your Heritage account, we use the BSB you nominated to debit or credit the correct account type under your membership.
If you're unsure what your BSB or account number is, you can find it in your Mobile Banking App or Heritage Online by viewing your account information. You can also look up your BSB online or contact us for assistance.
How can I deposit cash or a cheque into my Heritage account?

The system will automatically detect that it's a new payee and ask for the appropriate authentication. This will be either a Pay Anyone Password or a One Time Password depending on your settings.

How do I view my Visa Authorisations or Payments in Advance?
You can view more information on your accounts through the “I Need To…” and “I’d Like To…” panels in Heritage Online. These panels are located on the right hand of the screen and the options available change depending on your membership characteristics, and the page that you are viewing.
View Visa Authorisations (pledges)
Can be found in the “I’d Like To...” panel and will only appear if you are viewing transactions for an account for which this option is relevant. For example, if you view transactions for an account with a credit or debit card attached, the option to “View Visa Authorisations” will be visible.
View Loan Details
Can be found in the “I’d Like To...” panel and will only appear if you are viewing transactions for an account for which this option is relevant. If you view transactions for any loan account, the option to “View loan/Line of Credit Details” will appear.

How long will my bank to bank transfer take?
Bank to bank transfer times can vary across financial institutions depending on the type of transfer you make.
If you’re making a traditional inter-bank transfer it will take 1-3 business days. If you use NPP Faster Payments or a PayID it can be near real-time.
The fastest way to receive money into a Heritage Bank account from another financial institution is via NPP Faster Payments to a PayID or BSB and Account Number.
The New Payments Platform allows you to receive a faster payment from anyone whose financial institution is a participant and who has an eligible account. If you’re unsure if your sender can use this service, check for participating financial institutions on the NPP Website.
Alternatively, your sender could use a traditional inter-bank transfer which will take 1-3 business days from any financial institution.
The fastest way to transfer money from Heritage Bank to another financial institution is using NPP Faster Payments on our Mobile Banking App.
If the account you’re sending money to is eligible to receive NPP Faster payments, then you will receive an option to make the payment ‘Within 2 hours’. If you can't see this option, then the account you are sending to is not eligible to receive an NPP transfer. The transfer must go as a traditional inter-bank transfer and it could take 1-3 business days.
If you transfer money from Heritage Online on a desktop or mobile browser to another financial institution, it will take 1-3 business days to arrive.
