Member FDIC Why open an HSA? High deductible (HDHP) insurance protects you from high medical bills. HDHP generally costs less than traditional coverage; money saved on premium can be put into HSA. Contributions are tax deductible. Funds can be withdrawn from your HSA (tax-free) to pay for qualified medical, dental, or vision expenses. After age 65, HSA funds can be used for non-qualified expenses without penalty. Only income tax is assessed. HSA funds earn interest tax-free. Funds rollover year after year – “use it or keep it” HSA money is yours – take it with you if you change jobs or health coverage.
