Ep 9: How to use your HSA as a Retirement Account
Play • 15 min

You could use your Health Savings Account (HSA) to pay for current medical expenses. However, if you can, I recommend that you invest the full HSA amount into the stock market and allow it to grow and compound.

The HSA is the only account that has triple-tax benefits: you don't pay taxes on contributions, growth or withdrawals (for qualified medical expenses).

Did you know:

  • You can save your receipts for current medical expenses and pay yourself back in the future?
  • You don't have to have the money in your HSA currently, as long as the account is open, start saving receipts.
  • After the age of 65, you can withdraw money from your HSA for any reason and pay taxes on the gains?
  • This is like having an additional 401k account!
  • Qualified medical expenses include dental, vision, hearing aids, chiropractic care, eyeglasses and more!
  • You can contribute up to $3,600 as an individual or $7,200 as a family
  • Plus an additional $1,000 as a catch-up if you're over age 55
