Suncorp is offering our lending customers impacted by COVID-19 the following on an “opt-in” basis:

Repayment Pause:  A deferral of repayments for all home loans, for a period of up to six months (interest will be capitalised).

Move to Interest Only: Conversion from principal and interest repayment structure to interest only for a period of time for their home loan.

Cashback: Customers who have made additional repayments on their variable home loans are able to access cashback (up to the value of the advance repayments minus the value of one month’s repayment) to assist them with expenses. For fixed rate home loans, customer need to make a special request for Suncorp to grant an exception, allowing them to access cashback on their loan.

Modify Repayments: Customers who have made additional repayments on their home loan and are ‘in advance’ and are able to reduce or suspend their repayments (up to the value of their advance payments).
