Member identification and certification
- If you're applying for a membership at a BankVic branch, you will need to confirm your identity by presenting original documents at the branch or to someone who is qualified to certify copies of these documents.
The certifier will also need to complete our Certification form which enables us to confirm that they are able to certify copies of original documents. The Certifier can be a Police Officer, Legal Practitioner or Justice of the Peace.
Appropriate identification documentation
- For example, Drivers Licence, Passport and birth certificate. Should you need assistance with appropriate documentation please contact Service & Sales on 13 63 73.
Appropriate documentation must contain current residential address (where appropriate) and any documents that contain a different name must provide additional documentation to show your change of name (marriage certificate issued by an office of Births, Deaths and Marriages).
When instructing us, transacting on accounts or using other bank services, all members will be identified by means of signature comparison.
You can also apply for a Keyword and/or Rapid Response Access Code that will allow you to access accounts and other services we provide via the telephone, and an online banking password that will permit you access to your account(s) online using a computer or mobile device.
For security reasons, we strongly advise all members to keep their Keywords, Access Codes, passwords and account numbers in safe and separate places.
- The Keyword may also be used for identification purposes when we cannot verify a member’s identity by way of signature comparison.
- When there is more than one signature required to complete each transaction or instruction, the Keyword or Password facilities may not be available.
