Setting savings goals can help you achieve what you want sooner
You’re more likely to be a successful saver if you know upfront what it is you’re saving for. Even better, you can turbocharge your focus when you’re clear on how much you need to save, when you want to save it by and what you’ll need to save regularly to get there.
Westpac Life and Bump accounts both include our handy Savings Goals1 feature that lets you set up to six personalised goals with just the one account. You can customise the name your goal, decide how much you need to save and how often you’ll need to save on a regular basis to reach it. Once your goals are set up, you can easily track your progress anytime you want in the Westpac App.
