Westpac Group, including BankSA, has welcomed the financial relief package announced by the State Government and reaffirmed its own support for South Australian businesses and individuals impacted by the current seven-day lockdown.
Westpac Group CEO, Peter King, said a range of support options were available to help South Australians who are experiencing financial difficulty with their cash flow needs.
'We know that this is a challenging time for South Australians who are experiencing a reduction in their income due to an inability to fully trade or work, whilst still needing to meet ongoing expenses,' said Mr King.
'In addition to the support announced by the State Government today, and Commonwealth measures already in place, we have a range of help available including repayment deferrals on home and business loans for up to three months.
'If South Australians are facing financial difficulty, we encourage them to contact us early so that we can work together on tailored support measures for their individual circumstances.'
