Health Savings Accounts have always presented a challenge to the custodians or trustees who offer them. We are used to having more control over products we have to report to the IRS. Unlike IRAs, HSAs are pretty much ‘self-administered’ by the client – which is the good and bad news. What is the bank’s job when it comes to overviewing and maintaining Health Savings Accounts correctly?
Health Savings Accounts are celebrating their 19th birthday in 2023 and they still remain a mystery to both the clients who own them and the custodians/trustees who house them. While most of the bank’s responsibility revolves around opening them correctly and providing contribution and distribution reporting to the IRS every year, we seem to get involved in ‘fixing’ the client’s both intentional and unintentional mistakes. This webinar will clarify what is our job and what is the client’s job in regard to paying attention to how much they are contributing and what distributions are being used for.
