Key Takeaways:
  • Compound interest lets your money work for you by letting you earn interest on the interest.
  • Check out savings scenarios using different initial deposits, monthly deposits, interest rates, and compounding periods.
  • After calculating, start saving!

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.
