Victoria Teachers Mutual Bank have been my banking provider for over 20 years. From the very start they were friendly, easy to talk to and very approachable. When I had dealings with them in regards to my home loan I dealt with the same person over the period of time completing the paperwork. Excellent advice was forthcoming in regards to consolidating all my loans which enabled me to get my finances in order and I am now able to make ends meet as well as saving for my retirement. I would not bank with anyone else.
Victoria Teachers Mutual Bank has always been there for the members. It is a bank owned by the members for the members. Their services are comprehensive and prices are fair and often less than other banks. They are easy to approach and give personal service.
We have been with the VTMB for quite a few years now and have found them very good to work with both from a financial point of view and certainly for customer service.
Making the switch to Westpac was easy. The customer service was great and they explained how the home loan package worked and all the benefits that came with it. I am happy to see the product works for us, with a lower interest rate than our previous bank and online banking to see our redraw options from the payments we are making.
This bank doesn't see you as a customer they treat you like a friend. They are concerned with your well being. It is nothing for them to stop are have a chat about life. They are very caring. While I was unwell, having suffered a nervous breakdown, the staff members were genuinely concerned for my well being. They were supportive and understanding. They made me feel safe and did not judge me. The act of kindness to me assisted in me becoming well again. I glad I turned to them, because the person who should have cared for and nutured me, my husband did not. The journey to recovery was a long one, a whole year. In that time I was hospitalised and was driven the the depths of despair. I also found out during this period that my husband of 25 years was having sexual affair with a woman he met on the internet while I was in hospital. This devastated me. I also discovered that she is not the first. When I looked back over the years there have been many. I always found out some information and he would deny any allegations that I made, stating that I was possessive of him and jealous. He said that the suggestion that he was unfaithful was ridiculous and that if I continued to accuse him of infidelity he would leave me. This weekend his own mother told me that he has lied to me for years. I now believe that my years of infertility is due to him sleeping around with other women. We had tried IVF treatment for 13 years without success. God, I've been such a fool. But no more, I'll be meeting with my solicitor this week to end this fares of a marriage and I know that the Victoria Teachers Mutual Bank will be there with me as I begin a new life as a happy, single woman. I'll be selling my home and I know that the bank will help me when I buy my own home.
I was with one of the Big 4 banks for 30 years and I moved to Vic Teachers Mutual Bank as all profits go back to all the account holders of the bank instead of outside shareholders and they beat the rates and the costs of the Big 4. The only drawback was no rewards program and no big network of branches. I can live without the handy branches as I do all my banking online these days and their online facilities are easy to use. I weighed up the cost of the rewards program, and the benefits of the lower rate and costs were greater than the perks of the rewards program.
'Trust' and 'Bank' don't usually go together, However, Victoria Teachers Mutual bank's like no other! Redraw facility, friendly staff, low rates, Recommended to all family and mates! Could compare to local butcher, postie or hairdresser, Teller knows me by first name and no lesser! Reminds me of good old days, when profits were not important and saving money pays! Commonwealth bank ATM's, we can use, Without fees, we don't lose! Website is easy and secure, 2 branches and no fewer. From credit union to bank, If it were sport, it would highly rank!
Victoria Teachers Mutual Bank have provided banking for my family for over 35 years. Originally a credit union for the education industry, I was introduced through my father, a teacher, although now anyone can join. I find their products competitive, the ability to bank fee free (savings accounts and loans), they offer the rewards package and the customer service is great. While they only have two branches in Melbourne, you can access or deposit funds through any CBA ATM or branch.
Fantastic rates on home loans where I can withdraw any excess monies deposited in case of an emergency. Great customer service and follow up on enquiries in regards to loans and accounts.
We have used this product for over two years now. The product itself is great. Competitive rates & options for the customer. The bank itself is hard to work with. Only the one branch in Camberwell (Vic) opened 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, makes it hard to organise banking. Having better customer service would make life a lot easier.
The great flexibility of their unlimited fee-free redraw facilities (and for any amounts from $500) are enabling us to pay off our loan faster. Online banking allows us to transfer immediately from one account to another. So we can have all our money sitting in the home loan and simply transfer some back to our transaction account whenever we need to pay a bill. (Unlike many other banks there are no limits to the number of times you can do this and no fees for doing so.) Interest rates are competitive - but the lack of fees really means that you are paying less for the loan here. And customer service is brilliant. A bank with responsible attitudes and customer focus.
