Are you prepared for the Christmas Break?

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Here are some things you need to know before we have our Christmas break.

What a year it has been in 2019. After becoming a member-owned bank, we continued to grow, investing in our team and our services to deliver a better banking experience to you.

With the end of the year fast approaching, we wish to advise that First Option will be closed from 12 noon on 24 December 2019. We will return refreshed on 6 January 2020.

Before the break, please ensure you have 3 things:

  1. An active Visa Card
  2. Internet Banking and Easy App registered
  3. Some cash out in case of emergency

We're here to help you

If you need to report a lost or stolen card during the break, please use Easy App (Manage Cards) or send First Option an email marked URGENT in the Subject line. We will have skeleton staff on hand to assist you.

On behalf of the directors and staff, I’d like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Dean Jepsen
CEO
