More Insight on HSAs

  • History: Health Savings Accounts were created by Congress to let individuals pay for health expenses on a tax-free basis.
  • Tax Benefits: An HSA can provide significant Federal tax benefits such as tax-deductible contributions; pre-tax payroll deductions; tax-deferred savings growth; and tax-free medical expense payments.
  • When You Retire: Money in your HSA can be saved tax-deferred until you retire. Once you reach age 65, money can be used tax-free for medical expenses, or other purposes, subject to income taxes similar to other retirement savings plans.
  • Account Control: You determine when to use your funds and make payments. If you change jobs, the money in the HSA goes with you.
