With ongoing changes in healthcare, an investment health savings account (HSA) is an increasingly important part of a comprehensive retirement package.

In fact, more and more people are turning to HSAs to pay retirement healthcare expenses not covered by Medicare. Why? Because studies indicate that the average couple retiring at 65 years old today will need more than $260,000 to cover these expenses.1 And better to pay these expenses tax free from an HSA than taxed from a retirement plan.  An HSA provides triple tax savings:  funds are deposited on a pre-tax or tax-deductible basis, earnings grow tax free and withdrawals for qualified medical expenses are tax free, making them especially attractive for investors.

Through our partnership with HealthSavings Administrators, we’ve created an investment HSA with access to a range of fully diversified, risk adjusted portfolios designed to suit individual investor needs.  To learn more about OBS’s health savings offering, click here or contact us.
