Congratulations! You’ve opened a new MyState Bank transaction account.
Here’s a few tips to get you set up and ready to start using it for your day to day banking.
- Connect your digital wallet
We have all of the pays: Apple, Google, Samsung, Fitbit and Garmin. When you first add your MyState Bank Visa Debit card (which you can do straight away, without waiting for your physical card if you are an Apple user) the card is defaulted to the Visa network for payments, however you can also access all the benefits of the eftpos payment network. For more information on how to get set up go to https://mystate.com.au/help-category/digital-wallets/
- Put some money into your account
Once you’ve logged into your account you will need your new BSB and Account number details so you can transfer money from one bank to another. Simply log into the app or internet banking of your existing bank. Navigate to the page where you can pay someone. Enter the MyState Bank BSB 807-009 and your Account number so you can transfer funds from the other bank into your new account. Please note transfers can be instant, or may take 1-2 days to arrive, depending on the bank and some international bank transfers require a SWIFT code.
Or if you prefer in-person, visit one of our Tassie branches or your nearest Bank@Post outlet to deposit cash or a cheque into your new account. Don’t forget to take your MyState Bank Visa Debit card with you!
- Move your pay or benefits into your account
Give your employer or benefits provider BSB 807-009 and your MyState Bank account number and they’ll switch your payments to go straight into your new account or complete this form.
- Set up direct debits and automatic bill payments
To set up a recurring payment, select the Recurring option (Internet Banking) or Later or Recurring option (Mobile Banking App) when making the selected transfer.
- When you receive your card
When your card arrives in the mail make sure you go to Cards in the menu and then go into More Card Controls to personalise your banking experience.
- Start using your account to gain Insights
Your new transaction account comes with personalised Insights technology designed to get to know you and your spending habits. Over time it can help you predict regular debits, help you save and avoid bill shock. Learn more at: https://mystate.com.au/bank-accounts/digital-banking/personalised-banking/
