It’s Yours

Think of your HSA as a personal savings account. Any unspent money in your HSA remains yours, allowing you to grow your balance over time. When you reach age 65, you can withdraw money (without penalty) and use it for anything, including non-healthcare expenses.

Easy to Use

Swipe your benefits debit card at the point of purchase. There is no requirement to verify any of your purchases. We recommend keeping any receipts in case of an IRS audit or to withdraw funds tax-free upon turning age 65.
