HSAs Can Be Powerful Retirement Saving Tools

HSAs Can Be Powerful Retirement Saving Tools

Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are tax-advantaged savings vehicles for funding health care expenses not covered by insurance. And for those in relatively good health, they also may serve as attractive retirement savings vehicles.

To be eligible to contribute, an individual must be covered by a high-deductible health plan (HDHP). In 2024, an HDHP must have a deductible of at least $1,600 for individual coverage or $3,200 for family coverage. For 2024, you can contribute up to $4,150 to an HSA, $8,300 if you have family coverage (plus an additional $1,000 if you’ll be 55 or older this year). Contributions are tax-deductible and withdrawals used to pay for qualified unreimbursed medical expenses are tax-free.

Any funds you don’t need for medical expenses will continue to grow on a tax-deferred basis, providing a valuable supplement to your other retirement accounts. In general, once you reach age 65, you can use your HSA funds to pay for anything. Amounts spent that aren’t for qualified medical expenses will be subject to state and federal taxes, but not subject to a penalty. Contact the office with questions about adding an HSA to your plans for retirement.
