Information for Vulnerable Customers

We know things don’t always go to plan. If you’re facing challenges, we want to have your back in any way that we can.

The benefit of banking with a customer-owned bank like Horizon is that we always put you first. We exist solely to take care of our members and if you find yourself in a vulnerable situation, please reach out. Our focus is on trying to be as helpful, kind and supportive as we can to help you cope with finances in your individual circumstances.

We can provide face-to-face support in any of our branches. The Horizon Bank team are here to ensure that you feel supported through any financial hardship you may experience. To locate your nearest branch, click here.

If visiting a branch isn’t an option, you can contact our team via phone Monday through Friday from 8:30AM to 5:00PM (AEST/AEDT) on 1300 366 565. You’ll always speak with a real person who will listen, ask the right questions and provide you with the potential options available.
