Reduce the interest calculated on your eligible AMP Bank home loan by depositing your regular income and earnings into an everyday banking offset deposit account.
Link up to 10 offset deposit accounts. The combined funds are offset against your home loan balance each day, meaning you only pay interest on the remaining portion of your loan.
Your savings will help reduce interest calculated, but you can still use the funds in your deposit accounts when you need to. Manage your account online, via My AMP app, or by phone banking.
How does it work?
Use all your deposited funds to reduce your interest repayments. See how you can potentially save years and thousands of dollars of loan repayments with the loan offset calculator. Add your regular deposits like salary, bonuses or other income on the extra repayments tab to view how these funds work to offset the outstanding balance of your loan.
The daily combined value of the funds in your deposit accounts is offset against your home loan amount. This means interest is calculated on a lower amount than your actual loan.
An example of how it works2
Home Loan balance: $400,000
Offset Deposit Account 1 balance: $30,000
Offset Deposit Account 2 balance: $45,000
You will only pay interest on: $325,000
How much could I save?
If you have a 30 year home loan, with a consistent balance of $75,000 in your Offset Deposit Account and a constant rate of 5% pa:
Estimate of interest saved: $279,147
Estimate of time saved on your loan: 10 years
Rates & fees
All money in your Offset Deposit Accounts will offset your home loan. This could save you thousands of dollars in interest.
Any offset balance above your loan balance does not accrue interest. The AMP Offset Deposit Account does not have monthly fees unless linked to an AMP Basic home loan. In this case, there is a $6 monthly account management fee.
See the Deposit product fees and charges guide for more details, including fees for special services.

How to link an Offset Deposit Account to my home loan
Linking an Offset Deposit Account to an eligible loan account is only completed on request. We do not automatically link your Offset Deposit Account to your eligible loan account.
For example, if you come to the end of a fixed rate period and your loan converts to an eligible variable interest rate loan, you must call us on 13 30 30 to link or open an Offset Deposit Account.
If an Offset Deposit Account is linked to a home loan that is not eligible, no offset benefit will apply, and the product name will change to Unlinked Offset Deposit Account. All account access and operating terms and conditions remain unchanged.

1 A $6 Monthly fee is payable on an Offset Deposit Account linked to Basic variable rate loan accounts.
2 Loan repayments are assumed to be made at the end of each month or fortnight (depending on the repayment frequency you select). Loan repayments are assumed to occur immediately after the accrued loan interest has been charged to the loan. One year is assumed to contain exactly 26 fortnights or 12 months. This implicitly assumes that a year has 364 days rather than the actual 365 or 366. All months are assumed to be of equal length. The loan interest rate is assumed to be the annual nominal rate of interest, compounded per the loan repayment frequency.
For example, for a loan interest of 5% pa and monthly repayments, the calculator assumes the interest rate charged is (5% / 12) = 0.4% per month, compounded monthly. The loan interest rate is assumed to remain the applicable loan interest rate over the entire term of the loan. The average offset balance is assumed to not change over the selected repayment frequency period. The weekly and fortnightly loan repayment amounts are assumed to be a quarter and a half of the monthly repayment amount respectively. The loan repayment amount is calculated assuming a standard home loan where both interest and principal is repaid over the loan term.
3 Daily withdrawal and purchase limits apply for ATM and EFTPOS.
