Are HSAs the Next Retirement Account?

November 11, 2022 | Matt Nowak, AIF®, Defined Contribution Specialist, Assistant Vice President

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a type of savings account that allows an individual to set aside pre-tax money to pay for qualified medical expenses, such as doctors, dentists, vision care, and prescriptions. Individuals are eligible to contribute to an HSA if they are covered under a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP), most often offered by an employer.

This newsletter covers the growth of HSAs as a potential savings and investment vehicle for retirement, reviewing how HSAs work, contribution limits, and the recent trend by defined contribution plans to provide a consolidated holistic view of a participant’s retirement assets.
