Why would I want to invest my HSA funds?
You can invest excess HSA funds to help grow your future healthcare savings. Your investment returns and earnings are all tax-free.
- Your HSA funds can roll over from year to year.
- While your 401(k) is tied to your employer, your HSA is not.
- Your HSA funds go with you if you retire or change jobs.
Once you reach age 65, you can use these funds tax-free for eligible healthcare expenses. You can use the funds for ineligible healthcare expenses; however, you’ll be subject to your regular income tax rate*.
How do I invest my HSA funds?
You are in complete control of your HSA investments through HSA Central. Even better, you can set up your healthcare savings so that funds are automatically invested when you exceed the minimum $3,000 cash balance threshold for your HSA. Here’s how easy it is:
- Log into HSA Central.
- Choose View Investments from the I Want To… section.
- Start investing, view fund options and performance, set investment allocations, realign your portfolio, and more.
- Earnings on your HSA from interest and investments are tax free.
