Banking App Update

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Android 10 is officially released. It's chock-full of new features, has a renewed focus on privacy, and for the first time in Android history, doesn't have a tasty dessert name to accompany it, a significant shift from Android Pie.

In response to this upgrade, we have released an updated version 4.1.1 of our Banking App to ensure we are compatibility to Android's latest operating system. The updated version of our Banking App is now available in the Google Play store.

If you are experiencing any issues updating our Banking App, please give us a call at 13 24 40, and one of our Member Service Officer will be able to help you.

PIN Change Enhancements

The in-app card PIN management tool has been enhanced to allow users to change a card PIN both with or without knowing the current PIN. The ability to change a card PIN without knowing the existing PIN provides an improved member experience. Members can authorise the PIN change by entering their 4 digit app passcode as multi-factor authentication. The existing process is the same for customers who know their card PIN. Click here to view step-by-step instructions.

NOTE: Fingerprint or facial recognition is not available to authorise a PIN reset where the current PIN is unknown.

Proposed Merger of Reliance Bank (a division of Unity Bank) and G&C Mutual Bank

Attention: open in a new window. Print

After several months of detailed assessments on the operational challenges that would arise from merging our two organisations together next year, the Boards of Unity Bank and G&C Mutual Bank have resolved that it would not be in the best interests of our members to proceed with the merger at this point in time. The Boards determined that it would be more beneficial for each Bank to remain independent and focus on executing their individual strategic plans over the coming year. 

In reaching this decision, both Boards acknowledge the goodwill, openness and respect that was evident during the discussions and are confident that each of our Banks will continue to provide competitive and highly valued services to their members. Our two Banks will continue working cooperatively and constructively with each other (including sharing branches) to ensure that Australian consumers have access to a strong, viable and ethical mutual banking alternative.
