Australian Military Bank Credit Cards

The Australian Military Bank specialises in providing banking services and credit cards to Australian armed service members and employees, but anyone can buy a share to become a member of the mutual bank and then apply for a credit card.

The Australian Military Bank started in 1959 as the Navy (Civil Staff) Co-op. Ltd. It gradually extended its membership to include all serving members and civilian employees of all Australian armed services. After merging with the Army Defence (NSW) Credit Union in 1983, it changed its name to the Australian Defence Credit Union. A final change in 2015 saw its name become the Australian Military Bank.

Mutual structure like a credit union

Just like a credit union, the Australian Military Bank has a mutual structure. That is, it is run for the benefit of its members, who are also shareholders and therefore the owners of the bank. It currently has over 50,000 members, 30 branches plus ATMs mainly located on-site at Australian military bases, and manages in excess of $1.3 billion of members’ funds.

Australian Military Bank financial products

The bank’s products include a credit card (the Australian Military Bank Low Rate Visa Card), transaction and savings bank accounts, term deposits, home loans, personal and car loans, superannuation savings accounts and insurance.

Anyone can be a member

Although the Australian Military Bank specialises in providing financial services to the defence community, anyone can become a member and have a bank account or credit card.
