No matter where you stand on the healthcare debate, an HSA is always a great idea. It helps you save for future medical expenses, earn interest, and gain valuable tax advantages. You own and control the money in your HSA, no matter if you change employers or insurance. Access to funds is simple — available by check, online banking, or a complimentary Visa® debit card.

Most adults under 65 who are not enrolled in Medicare and are covered under a high-deductible health plan (HDHP) can qualify for an HSA, but it is up to the account holders to determine their own eligibility. Please contact your tax advisor for further eligibility requirements.
