Suncorp has launched a home loan refinance cashback offer of up to $4,000 for health, education and emergency service workers.

The announcement comes as the bank launches a market-wide refinance cashback offer of up to $3,000 for any mortgage customer looking to switch to Suncorp. 

Suncorp Executive General Manager Lending Glenn Haslam said the bank wanted to thank health, education and emergency services workers putting themselves on the frontline every day to help Australians during the coronavirus pandemic.

“As many Australians manage the financial strain of coronavirus, this offer will support households by putting cash in the pockets of Australian homeowners,” Mr Haslam said. 

“We understand that customers want the choice – to use this extra cash to help with the household budget or to own their home sooner.

“If you haven’t reviewed your home loan for a while, you could be missing out on big savings, especially in this current low rate environment, so contact your local Suncorp branch or your broker or apply online.”

The tiered offer is available on owner-occupied and investor loans where repayments are either principal and interest or interest only.

The offer is available now for new refinancers who apply before 10 July 2020 and settle by 10 November 2020.

As part of its COVID-19 support measures, Suncorp has also waived establishment fees for those experiencing hardship and has $0 account keeping fees for all deposit customers.

Many lenders have come out in force to support borrowers through the pandemic.

In the first week of May alone, banks deferred 100,000 loan repayments including 50,000 home loans.

Recent figures from the Australian Banking Association (ABA) showed a total of 643,000 loans have now been deferred, with the total values of these loans now over $200 billion. 

Commonwealth Bank meanwhile announced it had approved more than $555 million in loans for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) through the Government-backed SME Guarantee Loan Scheme. 

Health funds also came to the party, with a large number announcing they would be delaying premium increases until later in the year.
