Fund your medical expenses and save for retirement at the same time with a Simsbury Bank HSA. Our highly-trained advisors are here to help you understand the ins and outs of your HSA, but the information below is a good place to start.
What exactly is an HSA?
A Simsbury Bank HSA is a premium interest tax-advantaged account that allows individuals to save up and pay for qualified medical expenses for the HSA owner, spouse and/or dependents.
Who is eligible?
HSAs are available to those covered under certain types of health plans that meet IRS requirements. These plans are known as high deductible health plans, or HDHPs.
What are the key benefits of an HSA?
There are many benefits to an HSA, including:
- Contributions to the HSA are tax deductible
- Employer contributions to your HSA are not counted as income to you
- Earnings are tax-deferred
- Distributions are tax free if used for qualified medical expenses1
- Balances can be carried over from one tax year to the next
- Assets in HSAs are portable; HSA accounts are your own property
- Balances can be used as a retirement savings account (For more information please see your benefits provider)
- Beneficiaries may be named for HSAs (A spouse can use the HSA as his or her own. Non-spouse beneficiaries must treat the inherited HSA as ordinary taxable income)
How does it work?
You can pay for your qualified medical expenses directly from your HSA account simply by writing a check, authorizing an online bill payment or using your Simsbury Bank HSA Debit Card*
1Simsbury Bank does not guarantee the Establishment Date of the HSA being the same as the date the participant enrolls in an HDHP. The Establishment Date will be the date the HSA is opened with Simsbury Bank. The IRS prohibits HSA funds to be used to pay for services obtained prior to the Establishment Date.
SimsburyBank HSA debit cards are blocked to transactions originating outside the US. Please contact your local branch if you reequire access to any foreign country.
