Health Savings Accounts

Stay prepared with a Health Savings Account

Don't have money set aside for medical bills? A Health Savings Account (HSA) helps you save for the cost of future bumps and bruises.

If you're enrolled in a high-deductible health insurance plan, an HSA lets you put aside pre-tax dollars for future health care expenses.

There’s no minimum balance to open an HSA account with us. You can make contributions at any of our locations, or through your employer via payroll deduction. You’ll get a Liberty Bank HSA Debit Mastercard® to pay for your medical expenses at your doctor’s office or pharmacy.

Here’s what makes Liberty Bank’s HSA different:

  • No minimum balance
  • No annual or monthly fee
  • Competitive interest rates
  • Personal, friendly service
  • Digital banking, Bill Pay and eStatements
