How It Works
The 50/30/20 Rule is a guideline developed by U.S. Senator and bankruptcy law expert, Elizabeth Warren. The rule states that your after-tax income should be divided as follows: 50% to needs, 30% to wants, and 20% to long-term savings. This calculator will show you exactly how much of your income you should dedicate to each category if you follow this guideline—just enter your monthly income after taxes.
