Westpac has confirmed it will close 22 bank branches across the country.

While it’s unclear exactly which branches will be closed, they are believed to be located in every state.

Westpac has confirmed less than two per cent of transitions were through branches.

“We are continually reviewing our services to ensure they reflect how our customers are choosing to bank, now and in the future.

“In the past 12 months, less than two per cent of transactions were through our branch network, as an increasing number of customers enjoy the convenience of our online and mobile banking services.

“When we do make the difficult decision to close a branch, we take into careful consideration factors such as usage, location, proximity to other services and community needs. We also follow Australian Banking Association protocols, including engagement with our employees and customers.”
