Key considerations before you open an HSA

How does a health savings account work?

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a tax-advantaged savings account specifically designed for covering your qualified medical expenses. Any contributions you choose to make are tax-free and tax-deductible and withdrawals are tax-free when utilized for qualified medical expenses. Plus, all interest earned on the account remains tax-free! Although health savings accounts can be offered through your employer, you can take the account with you if you change jobs.

Who is eligible to open an HSA?

Due to federal regulations, you must meet the following qualifications to open an HSA:
  • You must be covered by a high deductible health plan.
  • You must not be covered by another general coverage medical plan or Medicare.
  • You must not be eligible to be claimed as a dependent.

Can I rollover my health savings account funds?

Yes! Contributions roll over year after year so you don’t have to use the funds in the same year you put them in.

I live in California and have been a member of this fabulous credit union for over 30+ years doing all of my banking and loan requests from the west coast. I have never considered switching to a different banking institution because of the personalized service, electronic banking system, bill pay feature and the ability to speak with someone live when I need to.
