Savings Accounts

The difference is in the details. Let First U.S. help you reach your goals and create a financial cushion. With a First U.S. savings account, you can take steps to financial freedom when you set up an emergency fund, save for a particular goal or special occasion, and enjoy peace of mind by building a stable financial future for you and your family.

Non-checking account transfers and withdrawals are limited to six (6) per calendar month per Federal regulation.

Health Savings Account

Taking care of your financial health. If you're currently covered by a High Deductible Health Plan, you may be eligible to take control of your health care costs with a Health Savings Account (HSA) from First U.S. HSAs are an easy and convenient way to save and pay for qualified medical expenses. Best of all, there's no "use it or lose it" feature.

HSAs offer multiple tax advantages:

  • Funds are tax-free when used for qualified medical expenses
  • The tax benefits mean you save with every contribution and reduce costs on medical expenses
