Save for medical expenses with an HSA
With this account, you can make tax deductible contributions and use the funds to pay for medical expenses for you, your spouse and your dependents. Covered medical expenses include prescriptions, doctor visits, dental and vision expenses.
With a Health Savings Account, you can deposit funds into an interest bearing account, and deduct the contributions on your tax return. There is no deadline for when you have to spend the money. You can roll over the funds each year and use them when you need them.
To qualify for an HSA, you:
- Must be covered by a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP)
- Cannot be claimed as a dependent on a federal tax return
- Cannot be enrolled in Medicare
- May not exceed these annual contribution limits:
- Self: $3,500; for those 55 and older: $4,500
- Family: $7,000; for those 55 and older: $8,000
If HSA funds are used for any purpose other than a qualified medical expense, those funds are taxable, and will be penalized an additional 10 percent. The card also may not be used for cash withdrawals at the ATM.
Contact a Personal Banker for additional information.
The interest rate and annual percentage yield may change. At our discretion, we may change the interest rate on the account daily. Interest begins to accrue no later than the business day we receive credit for the deposit of noncash items (for example, checks). Interest will be compounded monthly and will be credited to the account monthly on the daily collected balance. If the account is closed before the interest is credited, you will receive the accrued interest.
