Rainy Day Savings Planner

When setting a savings goal to help cover those unexpected expenses, you can use our Rainy Day Savings Planner located within Goal Planner. This clever tool will help you work out how much you should aim to save, based on your situation.

Simply start setting up a rainy day (emergency savings) goal and follow the steps to calculate an amount to save. You'll need a few details like your current expenses and income, then we'll suggest what your emergency fund should be.

Questions you might have

How is the 'Still need to save' figure calculated?

The 'still need' figure is the difference between your chosen 'target goal' amount and the current balance of the savings account you selected to track your goal against.

What information does ASB save/store?

  • The rainy day savings goal options presented to you ($1,000 / 3 months' expenses / 6 months' expenses) and the goal amount you’ve chosen.
  • The selected account to track against rainy day savings goal.

Can I update my savings goal once it's achieved?

Yes, you can. You can either delete the achieved goal and start a new one or edit the existing savings goal and give yourself a new target.
