Take care on your journey

Save on taxes

Annual contributions are tax-deductible, and qualified withdrawals are free from federal income tax.

You own it

Your HSA funds stay in your account from year to year, just like an IRA. Your savings belong to you.

Grow tax-free

The dividends you earn on your savings aren’t taxed, so you can keep all the dividends you earn over time.

Take it with you

Unlike an employer HSA, this account belongs only to you. Wherever you go, you can take it with you.

More options

HSA funds can pay for medical expenses not covered by insurance, now or in the future.

Are you eligible?

Ask your tax professional if an HSA is right for you. In the meantime, you can apply for an HSA below.

Trail notes

No. An HSA is not insurance, and it’s not a replacement for health insurance. Instead, it’s a savings account that can help you pay for out-of-pocket medical expenses that your insurance doesn’t cover, like deductibles and co-pays.

Let’s say your insurance policy has a $5,000 deductible, and you need $20,000 of medical care. Your insurance will pay for only $15,000 of those expenses, leaving you to come up with the first $5,000 on your own.

 

This is where an HSA can really help. It empowers you to set aside money for the expenses that insurance doesn’t cover, so that when you need care, you know that your expenses are already taken care of. Meanwhile, insurance provides financial security for expenses that go well beyond what you can afford to save on your own.

Most medical, dental and vision services are eligible for HSA spending. You can also use your health savings for prescription drugs.

It can also pay for certain health insurance costs. If you’re covered under COBRA or Medicare Part A or B, you can use your HSA to continue your policy or pay for premiums. You can also use HSA money to pay for premiums if you’re currently receiving unemployment compensation. Long-term care insurance is another type of premium that you can pay for with HSA money.

The APY is a percentage rate that effects the total amount of dividends to be paid on an account based on the dividend rate and frequency of compounding for an annual period. The Dividend Rate APY may change at any time as determined by the Credit Union’s Board of Directors. Dividends are paid from current income and available earnings after required transfers to reserves at the end of the dividend period.

The compounding and crediting of dividends and dividend period applicable to each account is set form in the Rate Free Schedule (above).The Dividend Period is the period of time at the end of which an account earns dividend credit. The Dividend Period begins on the first calendar day of the month and ends on the last calendar day of the month. Dividends posted to the account on the last day of the month are based on the daily periodic method. For all accounts, dividends will begin to accrue on non-cash deposits (e.g. checks) on the business day you make the deposit to your account.

The minimum balance requirements applicable to each account are set forth in the Rate and Fee Schedule (above). For all accounts dividends are calculated by the Daily Balance method which applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day. On Saving and Money Market accounts, no more than six (6) pre-authorized, automatic, or telephone transfers may be made from these accounts to another account of yours or to a third party in any month. If you exceed these limitations your account may be subject to a fee or be closed. Annual Fee $10.00.

Federal regulation limits savings accounts to six transfers or withdrawals per month if by check, point of sale debit card, pre-authorized, automatic, telephone or computer transfer. Items presented for payment that exceed the transaction limitations will be denied.
