Getting the Most Out of Retirement Plan Solutions

Hosted by: PLANSPONSOR

In the universe of retirement options, there are a lot of bright stars—401(k)s, IRAs, Roth 401(k)s, and more. And while each of these plans offers its own distinct advantages, shining among them in the retirement stratosphere is the often-overlooked HSA (health savings account). HSAs have gained tremendous popularity thanks to their ability to create peace of mind today, while generating income for the future.

Our expert panelists—Matt Clarkin, President and Co-founder of Access Point HSA and Matt Richardson, SVP, Sales Manager at UMB Healthcare Services—will discuss how HSAs complement the range of other retirement plans and what to look for in an HSA custodian partner. Join us as we discuss:

 
What’s fueling the rising tide of HSA adoption.
How HSAs stack up against other retirement savings options.
The role and opportunity for both financial advisors and plan sponsors to implement HSAs as part of a well-rounded offering.

The Truth About HSAs and Retirement

September 20, 2017
Hosted by BenefitsPRO

When is a medical plan also a savings plan? When it's a high deductible plan paired with a health savings account (HSA).

The continued adoption of high deductible plans has created a steady increase in HSA ownership over the past decade. And while many HSA accountholders are enjoying the advantages of a tax-free way to pay for today's health care expenses, only a small minority are benefitting from the real power of HSAs-funding future health care needs in retirement.

Hear why more and more financial advisors are calling HSAs "the new 401(k) or IRA." And how HSAs are creating fresh opportunities for brokers and financial advisors to help their clients' employees take control of health care spending and retirement planning.

This lively webinar will explore the key role HSAs play in creating financial security, specifically:

  • How HSAs are shrinking the widening retirement income gap.
  • Avoid taxes like a millionaire-on any salary.
  • Investing for growth.
  • Engaging employees in saving for the future.
