Saving is easy once you get into the habit - the hardest bit is getting started!

One way to get your savings working is to set up a regular direct payment from your current account into a savings account. This way, you'll automatically add a little bit each month, making it much easier to keep track of your savings.

As your savings build up, they’ll grow faster– even if you’re only paying in the same regular amount. With most savings accounts, the interest on your savings also generates its own interest.

This interest-on-interest is called compound interest, and long-term it makes a big difference to your savings balance!

Some savings accounts have minimum and maximum monthly payments, or other restrictions. Make sure to pick one that meets your own needs.

Always read the terms and conditions before you choose a savings account to make sure it’s right for you.
