You can save for future qualified medical expenses.
You can use your HSA funds today or save them for future qualified medical expenses. Your HSA may be a great tool for retirement planning in terms of health care expenses. To learn more about qualified medical expenses, visit www.irs.gov.
Your money never expires.
Even if your coverage is through your employer and you change jobs or become unemployed, the money in your health savings account stays with you and is yours to use. It never expires and can always be used for qualified medical expenses regardless of your underlying health insurance in the future.
