Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are one of the most effective consumer savings products available. And one of the fastest growing. In fact, as of mid-year 2021, there were over 31 million HSA accounts with $92.9 billion in assets (2021 Mid-Year Devenir HSA Research Report). With flexible withdrawal options and other tax advantages, HSAs have a broad appeal as a smart approach to planning for the future.
But many people miss a golden growth opportunity if they aren’t considering the investment options that are available with their HSA. myHSAinvestments helps manage, protect and grow your health care dollars through an easy-to-use online experience.
