Online banking is currently unavailable for Bendigo and Adelaide Bank customers, which the bank has attributed to an IT outage affecting a number of systems.
The problem was first acknowledged when the bank took to social media shortly after 6am on Wednesday, however some comments below the post indicate problems may have arisen the night before.
The bank took to social media again shortly before 10am, advising that it couldn’t provide insight as to when the outage would fixed, and that some branches’ services had also been affected.
A spokesperson for the bank told iTnews that ATMs and eftpos facilities remain operational, including the ability to withdraw cash through these services.
“Customers can also access branches for their transactions,” the spokesperson said.
Customers should feel comfortable that this will have no impact on their deposits or other investments.— Bendigo Bank (@bendigobank) March 13, 2019
