What Does Employee HSA Success Look Like?2 min read • March 08, 2018
Adding an HSA to your benefits offering is easy, or at least it is with Lively. It takes 5 minutes, is 100% online and paperless. But what happens next? How can you ensure that your HSA adoption rates are high, employees are happy, and your benefits offering is a success? Here are the steps you can take to ensure your HSA rollout is smooth and seamless.
Lively HSA is simple and easy to use. It’s free for employees. If employees want to add investments through TD Ameritrade they can (it’s free!). There are no hidden fees for other account costs for employees. Opening an HSA creates flexibility for employees to use pre-tax dollars for future out-of-pocket medical expenses.
Personalize HSA Benefits
Understand how each employee segment will use an HSA to help them get the most out of it.
- Younger employees, with lower expected health costs, can save or invest their HSA for the future.
- Employees with families, with higher expected health costs, can use the pre-tax savings to save money on out-of-pocket medical expenses
- Employees closer to retirement can save or invest their HSA to use on the $275,000 of expected medical costs in retirement. Plus after 65 years, they can use their HSA funds for anything, not just health-related expenses. Just pay income taxes – no penalty!
The HSA solution has benefits that work with every employee segment in your office. We just need to show them how best to take advantage of their HSA.
