Health Savings Account (HSA)

    Cover health care costs the smart way with tax-advantaged savings. An HSA lets you make tax-free contributions, earn tax-free dividends, and withdraw cash tax-free to pay for qualifying medical expenses.

    That means you save on taxes in three different ways! And, there’s no “use it or lose it” policy. If you don’t use the money one year, it’ll be there for you the next. 

    Summary
    • Greater personal control over healthcare management and expenses
    • Prepare for qualified medical expenses
    • An HSA can provide tax savings:
      • Tax deductions when you contribute to your account
      • Tax-free withdrawals for qualified medical, dental, vision expenses, and more*
    • Contributions are tax-free and can be made by you, your employer, or a third party
    • Funds can be withdrawn at any time**
    • No monthly service fee
    • No minimum balance requirements
    • Unused funds remain in account year after year; no "use it or lose it" policy
    • Keep your HSA in your name, regardless of career or life changes
    • No minimum deposit to open

    Resource

    *Consult a tax advisor.
    **You can withdraw funds at any time for any purpose. However, if funds are withdrawn for reasons other than qualified medical expenses, the amount withdrawn will be included as taxable income, and is subject to a 10% penalty.
