This account is intended for the purpose of paying medical expenses associated with high deductible health plans. Please check with your employer to confirm eligibility to contribute to an HSA. Please check with your tax advisor to determine the maximum contribution you are allowed to make.

First American Bank is required to report all distributions and contributions to the IRS, including transactions made in error. 

Balance Information: We use the daily balance method to calculate the interest on the account. This method applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day. You must maintain a minimum balance of $0.01 in the account each day to obtain the disclosed annual percentage yield.

Limitations: You must deposit $0.01 to open this account. If you close your account before interest is credited, you will not receive the accrued interest. Accrued interest may be paid when the entire balance of the closed account is transferred to a new First American Bank Account.

Account Fees: Monthly paper statement fee: $3.95. Minimum daily or combined average balance of $2,000 must be maintained in a HSA, checking, savings, or money market to avoid the monthly maintenance fee for a paper statement of $3.95.

The primary owner (designated by the first named owner on the signature card or on the statement) must enroll in our Online Banking Service and accept the Online Banking Agreement before the account will be converted to free electronic statements. During the first 90 days after opening, the fee for any paper statements generated will be waived. If, after 90 days, the primary owner has not accepted the Online Banking Agreement, the account is subject to the paper statement fee.

An overdraft charge is imposed for overdrafts created by checks, in person withdrawals, ATM withdrawals, or by other electronic means, as applicable. See service fee schedule for complete information. Fees may reduce earnings on this account.

This disclosure contains information about terms, fees, and interest rates for some of the accounts we offer.

*A $3.95 monthly fee will be charged if the customer elects to receive a paper statement.  The fee will be waived if; 1) the customer elects to receive eStatements only; or 2) a combined minimum average daily balance of $2,000 is maintained between the checking portion of the Health Savings Account and an associated checking, NOW, savings or money market account.

* In the funding screen please click "Funding by Check" if your employer will be making your contributions via payroll deposits. You do not need to enter a dollar amount in the funding screen as HSA accounts may be opened with a zero balance.
