In what is being described as a “major blow to communities”, Victorian bank branches are reportedly closing at the fastest rate in two decades due to the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the Herald Sun, there have been 95 permanent closures of branches either completed or scheduled across the state.

Finance Sector Union national secretary Julia Angrisano said “it’s a real blow to the forgotten Australians.”

“Not everybody can move to digital banking – people with disabilities, those with low levels of digital literacy, and those with English as a second language or limited access to transport,” she said..
