With health care costs consistently on the rise, and the uncertainty of the health care environment, it’s more important than ever to adequately save for health care costs and retirement. Participation in a health savings account (HSA) allows you to save pre-tax dollars to prepare for retirement. Although your funds can be used to pay for immediate health care expenses tax-free, you can also save the money for health care expenses later in life. You can continue to contribute year after year and withdrawals can be made at any point in time. Whether you withdraw the money tomorrow, five years from now, or in retirement, funds used for qualified health care expenses are tax-free when you save your receipt. To assist with current and future health care costs, Union Bank offers two distinct HSA options, allowing us to meet the individual needs of our customers.
