Your health savings account has reached a designated balance, also known as the investment threshold.
That means you can choose to invest some of your HSA dollars as part of your long-term savings strategy.
To set up your investment account, go to the investment tab and click 'Dashboard'. You can then enroll in an investment account.
First, you will be prompted to set up your fund elections.
This is when you select your investment options and decide how to spread the money among those funds.
You can change mutual fund elections at any time.
Then you will decide how much money you want to transfer into your new investment account.
You can also use money in your investment account to help pay for qualified medical expenses. Simply sell the funds you own and transfer the money to your HSA cash account.
Or make investing even easier with recurring transfers – any funds that exceed your designated balance will automatically be transferred into your investment account.
Remember, the funds in your investment account can grow tax-free. And you can keep investing as long as you maintain the HSA investment threshold amount.
If you are eligible, don’t wait! Go ahead and set up your investment account today!
