Current situations

We’re with you, Queensland and New South Wales.

We’ve donated $300,000 to the Red Cross to support communities impacted by Cyclone Debbie and associated flooding, we've also provided $100,000 to our microfinance partner, Good Shepherd Microfinance, to help low income Australians affected by the disasters and are matching donations through our branches and Internet Banking platform. Our NAB Assist hardship specialist will be in the disaster affected areas to help customers:

- Proserpine 12-13 and 18-20 April

- Mackay 18-21 April

- Airlie Beach 18-20 April

For more information please read the Media Release and contact NAB Assist if you need support.

The following branches have sustained damage and are currently closed:

· Airlie Beach, QLD

· Lismore, NSW

The Airlie Beach branch has temporarily relocated to Proserpine until services can be restored and we have set up a temporary bank in Lismore to help customers with any financial needs until we’re open again.

You’ll find us at the Browns Creek, Clyde Campbell Car Park, Lismore Monday to Thursday 9.30am-4pm and Friday 9.30-5pm. For cash withdrawals customers can use the rediATM at Lismore Square shopping centre.

Why is this important?

Some of our customers live in areas which are highly exposed to the impacts of extreme weather events, flood and drought and other natural disasters such as earthquakes and bushfires.

We believe in supporting our customers and communities, both in the immediate aftermath of a natural disaster and on the road to recovery. We provide support and relieve financial stress when natural disaster strikes and we help communities with grants, fundraising appeals and volunteering.
