Does everyone need to contact ANZ to update their details?
Yes - we need everyone to confirm bank account details for the account they would like their funds paid into.
This is because even though we hold account information for many Bondholders we need to be sure payment is made to the account the customer wants the funds paid to.
In most cases it is very easy for customers to update or confirm their account details with us.
What about the option of donating funds to the Cancer Society?
Nearly two thirds of bondholders have $50 or less in the scheme, so they may be less motivated to claim their funds. That is why ANZ is encouraging people to think about donating their money to the Cancer Society.
Around 10,000 bondholders have already chosen to donate their funds to the Cancer Society. This means ANZ will be passing on around more than $220,000 on behalf of these investors when we make the first payment in December.
The Cancer Society is the only organisation that funds research into all types of cancers, and provides support to anyone affected by cancer, including families and friends, no matter what age or type of cancer someone might have.
How do bondholders make their donation?
If you would like to donate your Bonus Bonds to the Cancer Society we can accept your instructions to pay your share of the proceeds to The Cancer Society of New Zealand. You will need to call us to provide these instructions.
If you select this option, then we don't require your bank account details. We will provide confirmation to you when we have completed your donation(s).
If you require a receipt once the donation has been made and your donation is $5 or more, The Cancer Society can provide you with a tax deductible receipt.
Please email The Cancer Society firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and the date of the donation (we’ll provide you a payment confirmation) and The Cancer Society will provide you with a receipt.
