As Tasmanians start to come to terms with the impact of the floods which have hit the state over the last week, we are committed to supporting our customers who have been affected and the wider Tasmanian community.

We are offering the following assistance to B&E customers who have been impacted by the floods:

  • No up-front fees on personal loans to purchase replacement household goods or motor vehicles;
  • Early access to term deposits without interest penalties;
  • Waiving of redraw fees for available funds on eligible home loans;
  • Ability to restructure home loan repayments to provide financial relief;
  • For customers with insurance through B&E, CGU are on hand to support them in the best way they can. We urge customers to lodge their claims with CGU as soon as possible by calling their 24-hour hotline 13 24 80. CGU claims staff will be at Steadfast Taswide office at 4 Stewart Street in Devonport from 1.00pm Friday, June 10 to support customers affected by the recent floods.

“We encourage customers who have been impacted to contact us as soon as possible on 1300 306 716, so we can see how we can assist and support them right now and in the weeks and months ahead,” CEO Paul Ranson said.

Alongside this, B&E is pleased to announce a joint flood relief appeal initiative with The Examiner Newspaper, St Vincent de Paul, Raw Tas, City Mission, the Benevolent Society and the Salvation Army.

"As a way of showing immediate support, we have donated $5000 to the flood relief appeal," Mr Ranson said.

"The Examiner & B&E Flood Relief Appeal aims to raise funds to provide direct assistance to those affected by the flood crisis statewide. As part of our involvement, we will be accepting public donations through our state-wide Retail Branch Network or by direct deposit."
