A Variety of Savings Options
Saving money is a necessary skill that serves you well throughout your life. Your savings needs may be different from your neighbors, but at First National Bank, we don’t believe in taking a cookie-cutter approach when it comes to helping you save money. That’s why our customer service staff works with each of our customers individually to educate them about the benefits that our savings accounts, CDs and HSAs all offer.

Are you going to be able to live comfortably in your retirement? If you’re not sure, then it’s time to start thinking about how you want to live in your retirement by opening an IRA. First National Bank offers Traditional and Roth IRAs.*
Health Savings Accounts
No one likes to think about becoming ill, but it is important to be prepared for medical expenses when they happen. First National Bank offers health savings accounts (HSAs) that are covered by high-deductible health plans and offer tax incentives to encourage you to save for your future health needs. Other eligibility requirements for HSAs include:
- Not being covered by any other health plan that isn’t a high-deductible health plan
- Not being enrolled in Medicare
- Not being claimed as a dependent on another individual’s tax return
HSAs at First National Bank in Fairfield are interest-bearing checking accounts, and include a free debit card to be used to pay for medical expenses.
*Please direct tax-related questions about which IRA is best for you to your tax advisor or the IRS.
