How the savings goal calculator works

Our savings goal calculator pinpoints how long it will take you to reach your savings goals, based on an array of different inputs. The end result is displayed in years.

Why should I use it?

As valuable as it is to start a savings plan, it’s hard to know how much you should save, how often, and for how long, unless you have a specific goal in mind. Our savings calculator takes an abstract concept and makes it more tangible, showing you exactly how long you will need to save to reach your savings goal.

What are savings? 

Savings are the money you have set aside for use at a later date, rather than used to spend on goods and services now. You might want to save for later in life and your retirement, or for something more concrete like a new car. Either way, this savings goal calculator can help.
