Compound Interest - Increase Your Savings

The power of compounded interest helps you increase your savings over time. Compounded interest means that your interest gets added to your principal and the next interest calculation is based on a higher balance.

So, for example, if you make monthly deposits of $100 at 4% interest, your balance at the end of year one would be $1200. If your account is compounded annually, then you will not earn any interest in the first year. At the end of the second year, you saved $2,448, which is comprised of $2,400 in deposits and $48 in interest. However, if your savings account is compounded monthly, then your balance at the end of the first year is $1222 and the end of the second year, $2,494. If you continue to save for 30 years, you will have 3% more through the monthly compounding calculation.

Initial Inputs: Make Your Savings Plan

To discover the effect of compounded interest, calculate your savings based on a few initial inputs including:

  1. The Initial Deposit (or your Beginning Savings Balance)
  2. The Nominal Interest Rate Quoted.
  3. Compounding period: Daily, monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual.
Make sure the amount doesn't exceed maximum amount available
The Annual Pecentage Yield is based on the number of times per year the interest is recalculated, or compounded. The more times (daily versus monthly versus yearly) that your interest is added on to the balance and recalculated, the more you earn. Check out the APY for different compounding periods.
