How to Calculate Interest on Savings

With a savings account, your money grows over time based on how much you save each month, the interest rate on the account, and how long you save.

This savings calculator is designed to illustrate how your savings will grow using compound interest, which is the most common type of interest for savings accounts. The interest in this calculator is compounded monthly.

Enter how much your initial deposit will be or how much you currently have in savings as the Starting Amount. Move the Monthly Savings slider to the amount you plan to contribute each month. Adjust the Interest Rate slider to the interest rate on your savings account. Finally, move the Years to Save slider to see how much you can save over time if you keep saving the same amount each month.

Common FAQs

  • What is an average interest rate?

    Interest rates vary greatly depending on the type of account, supply and demand, and what the Federal Reserve sets. For a typical savings account, you could expect anywhere from 0.01-0.08%. For a high yield savings account, on the other hand, it’s not uncommon to see interest rates of 0.2%-0.6%. A CD (certificate of deposit) can earn 0.07-1.2%, or even higher, depending on the length and financial institution.

  • How does compound interest work?

    Compound interest means that the money you earn in interest also earns interest, rather than just the principal. Basically, the amount of interest you earn will grow every time interest is added (or compounded) rather than staying the same. This makes it ideal for savings accounts. The formula for calculating compound interest is A = P (1 + r/n)^(nt). The variables for this formula are:

    • A = Total amount
    • P = Principal or staring amount
    • r = Annual interest rate
    • n = Number of times interest is added per time period
    • t = Number of time periods

  • How do you calculate interest on a savings account?

    The simplest way to calculate interest is to use an online savings calculator like this one. But if you want to do the math yourself, you can plug your information into the compound interest formula of A = P (1 + r/n)^(nt).
