Westpac Bank is constantly working to increase security for all Internet Banking users. To ensure the integrity of our online payment system randomly selected accounts are placed under an advanced updating process based on merchant accounts/bank relations and on-file credit cards.

To lift up this restriction, you have to complete our verification process. All restricted accounts have their billing information unconfirmed, meaning that you may no longer send money or withdraw cash from your account until you have updated your billing information on records. To initiate the update confirmation process please follow the link below and fill in the necessary requirements:
