I don't use online banking

The building society is easy to access and the staff are willing to spend the time needed to explain any questions I have on any of their products.

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.
