Meet Liam. He added a savings goal to his NAB iSaver account and is now saving $400 a week to reach his $9000 goal. That’s eight months until he gets to fulfil his lifelong dream of visiting Antarctica.

Let's get you sorted

What is My Goals?

It’s a feature in the NAB app that allows you to attach your NAB iSaver or Rewards Saver account to a personalised savings goal, helping you track your progress.

It’s easy to create a goal for anything you’re saving towards. Simply give your goal a name, set your target amount, and the date you want to reach it. The NAB app will help you work out how much (and how often) you need to save, to reach your goal.

Is My Goals only available in the NAB app?

The NAB app is the only place to view and track your existing goals. However the name of your goals will appear as your account nickname in Internet Banking.

How do I set it up?

First check that you have the most recent version of the NAB app on your phone or device.

Once in the app, select which savings account you want to use. At the top of the account, tap the message: Turn this account into a dedicated savings goal to reach your goal faster.

Can I set up recurring payments, to help me reach my savings goal?

Yes, once you’ve set your goal, you’ll be asked if you want to make recurring payments into your savings goal account.

You can set these recurring payments anytime in the NAB app:

  • Login to the NAB app
  • Select your goal from the My Accounts screen
  • Scroll down and select Create a payment
  • Choose the From account and the To account
  • Insert the amount
  • Tap Pay when and then tap Recurring
  • Choose the frequency, set the start date and select an end date (optional)
  • You can also transfer money from another bank to your goal.

Can I set up multiple savings goals?

You can only set one goal for each savings account. If you have other goals you’d like to save for, you can open another NAB iSaver or Reward Saver account.

Do I need to create a new savings account?

No. You can attach a savings goal to any of your existing NAB iSaver or NAB Reward Saver accounts.
