Health Savings

A Health Savings Account is an Account owned by an individual where contributions into the account are to pay for current and future medical expenses.

This savings account requires a minimum balance of $10,000 to earn a higher interest rate than the Regular Money Market. The interest rate and annual percentage yield on this account is determined by the bank and is subject to change weekly. The account's interest rate will never go below the rate being paid on the Regular Money Market Account. This account is designed for our customers who don't want to lock up their funds in a CD but want to earn a competitive rate.

If the account falls below the minimum balance requirement of $10,000, the interest rate and APY will be the same as our regular money market account rate on that day and a service charge of $5.00 will be imposed.

Limitations: During any statement cycle you may not make more than 6 withdrawals (debits) or transfers to another account of yours or to a third party by means of a preauthorized or automatic transfer or telephone order or instruction, computer transfer, or by check, draft, debit card or similar order to a third party.
