Add a direct loan payment

Direct loan payments are an easy way to set up recurring payments to your linked ANZ loan accounts.

  • You can choose to set up or increase a prime loan payment, which acts as the main loan payment method and automatically increases if the minimum loan payment amount increases.
  • Alternatively, you can set up regular direct loan payments, which don't automatically update if the minimum loan payment amount increases.

What is the benefit of having a "prime" payment?

  • If the minimum payment amount for your loan changes (due to interest increases) a prime payment will automatically increase to reflect the new minimum payment.

Why is there a "Yes" or "No" under the prime payment column?

The "Yes" or "No" indicates whether the payment is a prime payment or not.

  • If the field displays "Yes" this means that you have chosen this payment method as your only directly credited method of payment for this loan. Prime payments are managed by ANZ so they will be automatically increased if your minimum amount is increased (e.g. due to an increase in interest rates).
  • If this field displays "No", then the payment is not a prime payment and you will need to make other payment arrangements to meet your minimum repayment requirements.
Can I set up direct loan payments in addition to the prime payment?

Yes. If you have already got a direct loan payment set up as a prime payment for a particular loan, you will still be able to add another direct loan payment to that loan.

  • However, if you add another direct loan payment to that loan account, the existing recurring payment will lose its prime payment status. Hence both payments will be treated as non-prime payments.
  • If you are adding a direct loan payment to increase the repayment amount into your loan, it is suggested that you simply increase the payment amount on your original prime payment via the "Modify a direct loan payment" link instead of adding a new one.
Can I set up any amount as my prime payment for my loan?

You can set any amount that is equal to or more than the minimum repayment amount for your loan.

Can I set up direct loan payments from a non-ANZ account on ANZ Internet Banking?

No. If you want to set up direct loan payments for your ANZ Loan account via ANZ Internet Banking, it has to be done from a linked ANZ account.

Who do I contact if I need more information on my loan payments?
