Health Savings Accounts

What do you need to know about Health Savings Accounts?

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a tax-exempt account established solely for the purpose of paying out-of-pocket qualified medical expenses for you and your family when covered under a high-deductible health plan (HDHP). The funds are managed and controlled by you without restrictions of healthcare professionals or facilities. These funds can be rolled over year after year allowing you flexibility to manage routine as well as unexpected healthcare expenses. Your HSA follows you even if you change employment.

By working with Security National Bank, you can set up an HSA in much the same way as you would an IRA. Features of an HSA with Security National Bank include:

  • No minimum balance
  • No per check charge
  • No opening deposit required
  • No monthly fee Visa Debit Card ($6.79 one-time initial card fee)
  • $1.50 monthly maintenance fee
  • $25 service fee at account opening
  • Check safekeeping standard
  • Interest bearing account
  • Convenient monthly combined statement
  • Free Online Banking and Bill Pay
  • Interest compounded daily
  • Overdrafts are not permitted on account type

You can learn much more about Health Savings Accounts at  To open an HSA at Security National Bank, call (712) 277-6500 or set up an appointment with one of our Personal Bankers.

Debit Cards

Security National Bank has upgraded our VISA Debit Cards to chip technology, providing additional protection from fraud. To apply for your Security National Bank VISA Debit Card or ATM Card, stop by any Security National Bank location or call (712) 277-6500 or toll free at (800) 475-4762.

ATM Privileges

There is no charge for transactions completed on SNB ATMs. A transaction fee of $1.50, plus tax for each transaction not completed on an SNB Security 24 or Cash Center machine is assessed. This will be listed on your statement as Transaction Fee, Non-SNB ATM. On Generations Gold and Checking with Interest Accounts, this fee is waived on two transactions per statement cycle if you maintain an average daily account balance of at least $2,500 or more. On Money Market Gold Savings Accounts, this fee is waived if you maintain an average daily balance of $15,000 or more. Find any of Security National Bank's convenient ATM locations, or the ATM nearest to you, by using the ATM Locator Tool.

Reporting Lost or Stolen Cards

To report a lost or stolen card, immediately call 1-800-236-2442 (available 24 hours a day). Then notify Security National Bank during business hours at (712) 277-6500.

Standard Overdraft Practices

An overdraft occurs when you do not have enough money in your deposit account to cover a transaction, but we pay it anyway. We use the ledger balance less any Regulation CC holds to determine whether your account is overdrawn. Debit card transactions may be posted to your account several days after the merchant receives authorization. This means a transaction authorized against sufficient funds in your account may result in an overdraft when it eventually posts if intervening transactions have reduced the ledger balance.

We may authorize and pay overdrafts for checks; transactions made using your deposit account number, such as ACH or in person withdrawals; and recurring transactions using your debit card. We will NOT authorize or pay overdrafts for ATM transactions or everyday debit card (one-time) transactions unless you opt in.

Overdraft Fees

We may charge you an Overdraft Fee of $32.98 for each overdraft item we pay. We pay overdrafts at our discretion, which means we do not guarantee that we will always authorize or pay any type of transaction. If we do not authorize a debit card transaction, it will be declined at the merchant. If we do not pay a transaction, it will be returned unpaid and you may be charged a Return Item Fee of $32.98. We limit the number of Overdraft and Return Item Fees to 6 per day, regardless of how many items we pay or return on your behalf. In addition, we will not charge an Overdraft Fee if the end of day ledger balance is overdrawn by $10.00 or less.

Overdraft Protection Plans

We also offer overdraft protection plans, such as a link between a checking and savings account or a line of credit, which may be less expensive than our standard overdraft practices. To learn more, ask us about these plans.
