Hoping someone can help me here.
My partner and i recently moved our home loan to Bankwest, but have been unable to gain full access to all our products after settlement because I never received my secure code via TXT message (my partner received hers).
Last night I tried the online reset for secure codes but was told I had to call. So I did.
Here's where my problems start.
Apparently I must've answered some of the security questions incorrectly, because I'm now requested to visit a branch so they can verify my identity.
I've checked with the broker and the application forms have my mobile number listed correctly, so all I need is the code sent out and I can continue setting up my accounts. The application has a copy of my driver's license and all other relevant details.
Can someone please assist in getting the code resent to my mobile ?

Hi, I'm really sorry to hear of the issues you've had when trying to get access to your online banking and speak with us over the phone. It seems that when you answered some of the security identification questions our answers didn't match what you said. There will now be a hold on your accounts till you can pop into a Bankwest store to be re-identified and update the answers to your questions (to avoid this happening in the future) I'm really sorry for any inconvenience caused!

Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure what I answered incorrectly as nobody would tell me. But, i suspect it may have been because i was asked what my phone banking pin was, and i gave the one my partner had just setup. Perhaps that was the incorrect part.
Regardless, I'm not interested in verfiying my identity, I'd just like the secure code issued as it should've been a few weeks ago, to the mobile number that was listed on the application paperwork. (Along with my identification information).

I understand your frustration however as you've failed ID you will need to go into Bankwest store to be identified, at this point we can ensure all your details on our system that we use to identify you over the phone to avoid this happening in the future.

I'm not sure you do.
I was asking for a code to be sent again. A code which was sent out to the other joint account holder with no ID check whatsoever. Why should i have to waste my time and money travelling to a branch to confirm my identity for a process which doesn't require ID verification in the first place ? It makes zero sense.
Since i received no further updates on Friday, i DID waste my sat morning visiting a bank. Surprise surprise, the teller informed me that this happens all the time on new accounts and agreed everybody finds it quite frustrating.
It's now fixed.
