What is great about an HSA?
- You get the tax break going in (the money you contribute to the account, usually through payroll deductions, goes in pre-tax.
- The money you contribute grows tax-free.
- If you use it for out-of-pocket healthcare expenses, including deductibles, distributions are tax free too. (A 20% penalty and income taxes apply if you take money out before you’re 65 and spend it on something other than eligible healthcare expenses).
