About Health Savings Accounts
At M & F Bank, we’re in a prime position to offer Health Savings accounts (HSAs) to individuals, Third Party Administrators (TPAs), agents, brokers & employers. With lower fees, a wide selection of service options, and our experience with custodial accounts, M & F Bank offers clear advantages over other HSA providers. Use the convenient HSA calculators below to determine your potential tax savings when starting a HSA.
Often referred to as the “Medical IRA”, an HSA gives people an opportunity to set aside pre-tax income to use specifically for health expenses. Unlike medical flex plans, money in an HSA can earn interest, tax deferred, and any money not used by the end of the year rolls over to the next year.
HSAs are designed for individuals who have high deductible health plans and account owners can use the money for a variety of health-related expenses including eyeglasses or contact lenses, non-prescription medications, therapy, medical equipment, diagnostic testing, etc.

We’re intimately familiar with custodial accounts like the HSA. That means we can offer a higher level of service in establishing accounts, answering questions, and resolving any problems that may arise. In addition, we offer added peace of mind by being an FDIC insured financial institution. Not everyone who offers an HSA has this distinction.
With lower fees, our goal is to provide more for less. Individuals with a M & F Bank HSA also have access to:
• FREE Personal online banking and bill payment
• FREE telephone banking with 24-hour access via touchtone phone
• Client support by email at email@example.com or phone at (919) 687-7800 during our lobby hours: 9am – 5pm M-F.
With our in-depth knowledge and high level of customer support, you might think our fees would be higher than our competitors. Our setup and monthly fees are actually lower than other institutions that offer HSAs.
Interest will be compounded daily and credited monthly. Interest begins to accrue no later than the business day that we receive credit for the deposit of non-cash items (for example, checks). We use the daily balance method to calculate the interest on the account. The daily balance method applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day.
