Defence Bank commenced operations in March 1975 as Defence Force Credit Union Limited (Defcredit), before changing to Defence Bank in 2012. Today, Defence Bank has the largest on-base branch network in Australia. They are one of Australia’s larger member-owned banks, serving not only the Australian Defence Force but also the broader community, including staff in commonwealth department agencies.
Defence Banks heritage, history, on-base branches, DHOAS arrangements, and their staff, many of whom have partners and family in the ADF, give them a strong bond with people in defence. Their message remains simple – “We count on you. And you can count on us – for whatever you need, for whatever’s ahead.”
