Banking Act 1959

Part II - Provisions relating to the carrying on of banking business  

Division 2AA - Financial claims scheme for account-holders with insolvent ADIs  

Subdivision C - Payment of account-holders with declared ADI  

SECTION 16AG   Limit on payments to account-holder with declared ADI  

Despite section 16AF , an account-holder is not entitled under that section to be paid, in connection with the protected account or protected accounts the account-holder has with a particular declared ADI at a particular time, one or more amounts totalling more than the limit prescribed by, or worked out under, the regulations.

The regulations may prescribe, or provide for working out, different limits for the purposes of subsection (1) relating to account-holders in different classes.

Despite section 16AF , if:

(a) the account-holder has 2 or more protected accounts with the declared ADI at that time; and

(b) subsection (1) of this section reduces the total amount to which the account-holder would otherwise be entitled under section 16AF in connection with those protected accounts;

APRA may determine in writing, for each of the protected accounts, the amount (if any) of the entitlement under that section connected with the protected account (so that the total of the entitlements equals the limit prescribed by, or worked out under, the regulations for the purposes of subsection (1) of this section).


Amounts may be determined by reference to a class, or more than one class, of accounts: see subsection 33(3AB) of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901 .

In making the determination, the desirability of the account-holder receiving its entitlements as early as possible is to be taken into account. This does not limit the matters that may be taken into account in making a determination.
