How much money do I need to save?

Australians have been saving around 10 per cent of their household income for about the last five years. In recent months that savings rate has declined to a seven year low of 7.6 per cent.

The Reserve Bank said many people in mining states increased their savings sharply during the mining boom and are now drawing down on these savings to support a similar level of spending.
