Updated: 30 October 2023

The Australian Financial Complaints Authority has activated its significant event response plan following a change to a redraw feature on one of ME Bank’s home loan products. The significant event response plan is activated for events that can potentially result in significant numbers of related complaints coming to AFCA. It provides for early communication with relevant stakeholders and a more streamlined, expedited process for the resolution of related complaints. 

What has happened? 

ME Bank recently made changes to some older, legacy home loan products which resulted in some customers having their redraw limit adjusted. In response to customer feedback, ME is changing back redraw limits for any customer who requests it. If you've been impacted, you can either: 

  • Request to change back your redraw limit online at mebank.com.au/changebackredraw
  • Contact ME directly on 1300 308 357 to discuss alternative options 

For further information please visit the ME website on www.mebank.com.au  

ME Bank’s media release on this issue can be found on its website:
