Save small. Win big.

Do you try to save more for your future but find life keeps getting in the way?

With almost half of Australians reportedly living pay-cheque to pay-cheque^, it seems many of us will struggle to put our saving plans into practice.

Building wealth doesn’t have to be complicated or mean making big sacrifices. Adding just $10 extra per week to your super could significantly boost your savings for the future. The more you can contribute, the more this effect is multiplied by compound interest as your savings grow.

Just look at the difference regular contributions could make to your super balance.

Could you spare $10 per week?

By contributing $10 per week (after tax), you could save*:
Period of investment (years) 10 20 30
Amount saved $6,102 $14,664 $26,680

How about $20?

By contributing $20 per week (after tax), you could save*:
Period of investment (years) 10 20 30
Amount saved $12,203 $29,328 $53,360

$50?

By contributing $50 per week (after tax), you could save*:
Period of investment (years) 10 20 30
Amount saved $30,508 $73,320 $133,401

$100?

By contributing $100 per week (after tax), you could save*:
Period of investment (years) 10 20 30
Amount saved $61,015 $146,641 $266,802

Whatever you can spare out of your weekly budget, it’s important to start saving sooner rather than later. Your future self will thank you.
