Frequently asked Questions

  • What are Emergency Savings?

    Emergency Savings are financial safety net for future financial surprises and/or unexpected expenses. Financial planners recommend that an emergency savings should typically have three to six months' worth of expenses in the form of highly liquid assets. The Emergency Savings goal shouldn’t be high and unattainable. A person can start small and build up the Emergency Savings corpus gradually.

  • How can an Emergency Savings be built?

    An Emergency Savings can be built by setting aside a particular sum depending on your Emergency Savings Goal. For example: If your Emergency Savings Goal is ₹ 60,000 and you if you want to achieve it in 12 months, you need to set aside ₹ 5,000 per month for building your Emergency Savings. In addition to your regular expenses, set aside the amount needed to build your Emergency Savings. For this, if required, rationalise your expenses.  

  • How much should one’s Emergency Savings Goal be?

    The amount in the Emergency Savings Goal depends on the income, expenditure and existing savings of a person. However, since the factors aren’t as simple as they seem, Axis Bank’s Emergency Savings Planner takes into account these complexities into its calculations of the person’s Emergency Savings Goal.

  • How frequently should you review the Emergency Savings Goal?

    Your Emergency Savings Goal could change if you get married or if you have children as this will lead to a change in your expenses. Similarly, any change in your lifestyle too will lead to a change in your expenses. Any likely expenses arising from changes in your life stage or lifestyle should be factored in while calculating your Emergency Savings Goal. Hence, review your Emergency Savings Goal at least once a year and change your monthly savings accordingly.

  • Why should Emergency Savings be highly liquid?

    As emergencies can arise without any prior intimation, one should be able to access the funds as and when required. That is why the Emergency Savings instrument shouldn’t have a (large) maturity period or a penalty on pre-mature withdrawal. Additionally, the initial investment or principal amount should remain intact and should offer fixed positive returns. It should not vary depending on any change in interest rates or market fluctuations. Thus keeping these points in mind, a Savings Bank Account is the safest and most easily accessible instrument to keep your funds.

  • What are ‘Existing Savings’?

    Existing Savings’ is the money already lying in the savings account(s) of any bank for the individual.

  • Is the interest earned on Savings Bank Accounts taxable?

    Interest earned on Savings Bank Accounts up to Rs 10,000 annually is tax free. Anything beyond that is added to your income and taxed as per your tax slab.
