Certificate of Deposit (CD) 
If you’re looking to earn a higher interest rate 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. 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

    IRAs offer special advantages for the savings you've earmarked for your retirement. With FDIC insurance up to $250,000 and free and flexible distribution options, IRAs are a great way to fund your personal retirement savings plan. Whether you want a Traditional or Roth IRA, Bank Iowa will help you plan successfully while maximizing your tax-free savings. 
    Traditional IRA 
  • Contributions are tax-deferred until withdrawal
  • May be eligible to deduct contributions on current tax returns

    Roth IRA  
  • Unlike Traditional IRAs, incurs the tax now
  • “Qualified distributions” will be tax free

  • Penalty-free early withdrawal for certain expenses (buying a first home, college, uninsured medical coverage, etc.)
    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) 
    HSAs provide a convenient, tax-advantaged way to make healthcare 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. 
  • Make tax-deductible contributions – up to $3,100 for individual coverage or $6,250 for family coverage
  • Save money for future medical costs while earning tax-free interest
  • Pay expenses just as you would from any checking account
  • Carry-over your balance automatically from year to year

  • Cannot be covered under another type of health plan or be enrolled in Medicare
