Modify a direct loan payment

Direct Loan Payments are an easy way to set up recurring payments to your linked ANZ loan accounts. You can set up a Bank Managed Payment, which acts as the primary loan payment method.

  • When modifying Bank Managed Payment you can only increase the payment amount.
  • You cannot reduce the payment amount or edit the frequency of payments.
