Newcastle Permanent is a building society instituted for the people of Newcastle and the Hunter Valley. They have continued to put Novocastrians and Hunter Valley communities first. Their staff are very much aware of the needs of their clients and offer great advice when opening new accounts or taking out loans. Having been with them for 46 years, I would not bank with any other institution.

I've been a repeat customer of the Newcastle Permanent Building Society my entire life. Rolling accounts into one, paying bills and moving money around between accounts is extremely easy. However it took 4 years of having a savings account with the NPBS for a customer service representative to advise me how to double my interest rate by switching from bankbook to online.

Internet banking is simple and easy to use.

The main issue I find unsatisfactory with the Newcastle Permanent is trying to talk to someone over the phone. I always have to wait long periods and usually I wait for a call back. Can never seem to get my inquiry sorted straight away.
