Certificate of Deposit (CD)

If you’re looking to earn a higher interest and don’t need immediate access to your funds, consider opening a CD. Since CDs are FDIC-insured, you’ll enjoy the security of a savings account with the higher interest associated with an investment.

With a CD, your savings are invested at a set rate for a specified period of time. You’ll typically receive a higher interest rate on CDs with longer terms and higher balances. Early withdrawal penalties may reduce earnings.


  • Choose from maturity term options ranging from 3 to 60 months
  • Receive a fixed interest rate on your daily balance until maturity
  • Open with as little as $500
  • Pay no service fees
  • Eliminate the uncertainty of investing
  • Enjoy the security of FDIC insurance

Coverdell Education Savings Accounts (CESA)

Allows you to plan for your child's education by making annual non-tax-deductible contributions while the earnings grow tax-free. Unlike a Traditional or Roth IRA, CESAs can be used to fund more than just college – even elementary and secondary school expenses qualify without any penalty.


  • Maximum annual contribution of $2,000 per child
  • Individuals and non-individuals may contribute, including relatives, friends, corporations and tax-exempt organizations
  • Distributions are tax-free provided they do not exceed "qualified education expenses" incurred at an eligible education institution (qualified elementary, secondary and higher education expenses)
  • Funds can be transferred to another CESA for a member of the same family provided the new beneficiary is younger than age 30 (with the exception of a special needs individual)

Health Savings Account (HSA)

A Bank Iowa HSA provides a convenient, tax-advantaged way to make health care more affordable for those with a high deductible health plan. Tax-exempt contributions can be used to pay for qualified health care expenses for you and your family at any time without tax liability. You choose your contribution level and then use your HSA like a regular checking account to pay for qualified medical expenses. 


  • Make tax-deductible contributions that are FDIC-insured
  • Save money for future medical costs while earning tax-free interest
  • Pay expenses just as you would from a regular checking account
  • Carry-over your balance from year to year (there’s no “use it or lose it” policy)
  • Keep your HSA, regardless of a change in coverage or employment
  • Use your HSA funds to supplement income without penalty if you are 65 or older
  • No initial set up fee
  • No opening deposit required
  • No minimum balance to maintain your HSA account
  • Free online, mobile and text banking and bill pay
  • Free ATM/debit card

  • Cannot be covered under another type of health plan or be enrolled in Medicare
  • Must not be claimed as a dependent on another person's tax return
  • For contribution limits, a complete list of qualified medical expenses and maximum out-of-pocket expenses, visit
