The Options Plus account is available to Members who:
- Have a current home loan or mortgage-secured line of credit with Queensland Country and want a 100% offset account attached to the mortgage
- Are receiving an Aged Pension from Centrelink or the Department of Veteran's Affairs
- Are a self-funded retiree over 65

Options Plus comes with five free transactions each month, with no monthly fee, and your money is completely accessible. You can also attach a Visa Debit card to the account, meaning you can access even more free transactions by pressing Credit whenever you make a purchase when using the card at participating retailers.
What's an offset account?
An offset account allows you to "offset" the interest you earn on money you have in a savings account, against the interest you'd be paying on your mortgage. With a 100% offset account, we essentially deduct the balance of your savings from the balance of your mortgage (theoretically, of course - you still keep all of your savings!), so you only pay interest on the difference.
For example, if you've got $10,000 in savings and a $300,000 mortgage balance, you'll only pay interest on $290,000.
