What is an HSA? An HSA is a tax advantaged medical savings account that is owned by an individual (as opposed to company owned HRAs).
Why set up an HSA? Funds added to your HSA are not subject to income tax at the time of deposit. HSA funds also roll over from year to year to accumulate if they are not spent. Money in your HSA can be used to pay for qualifying medical expenses.
- HSA balance rolls over each year.
- The account is always yours, even if you change jobs or retire!
- Interest earned from investing in an HSA is tax-free!
- Qualifying plans usually have lower premiums.
- Funds added to your HSA are tax free, federal & state*!
(*Exclusions apply for AL, CA, NJ)
- Contributions to your HSA lower your tax liability.
Who is eligible for an HSA? You may qualify for a Health Savings Account if…
1. You are not claimed as a dependant on another person’s tax return.
2. You do not have a full purpose FSA (including those through a spouse).
3. You are only covered by an HSA-qualified health plan. (Other plans like Medicare may disqualify you from establishing an HSA.)
