How this calculator works 
Interest is calculated using the compound interest formula on the starting balance and factors in any regular monthly deposit. The calculator assumes no withdrawals are made by you and there are no changes in interest rates even though the bank may vary interest rates from time to time. The calculation method varies slightly from <brand> products and therefore results can only be used as an estimate 

Calculator assumptions and method 
The displayed interest rate is for illustration purposes only and you may manually input your own interest rate into the calculator. Each calculation starts on the first calendar day of the current month and assumes all deposits are made on the first day of the calendar month. Interest is calculated daily and compounded monthly at the end of the calendar month on the “How much I could save” and “How long it may take me to save” calculators. Interest is calculated and compounded monthly at the end of the calendar month on the “How much I may need to save” calculator. Total amounts (including interest earned) are rounded to the nearest cent.
