If You Have a High Deductible Health Plan an HSA Checking Account Can Help Reduce Out-of-Pocket Expenses
- HSA contributions, withdrawals for qualified medical expenses, and asset growth are all tax free.
- You own and control the money in your HSA Checking Account. Funds can be used whenever you need them. Unused funds rollover from year-to-year, allowing you to save for future medical expenses. The money in your account is also yours to keep, regardless if you switch employers.
- Taxable income is decreased by having an HSA, so fewer taxes need to be paid out.
- Your accounts are insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund to at least $250,000. Visit mycreditunion.gov to learn more about your Share Insurance Coverage and to access resources including a Share Insurance estimator tool, publications, videos, and more.
