Retain Clients with Holistic Wealth Planning that Includes HSAs
Recent stock market swings caused by COVID-19 illustrate that a traditional defined contribution plan is unlikely to be able to meet the long-term needs of many retirees already struggling to cover skyrocketing healthcare costs.
Enter HSAs—a smaller, yet bright star in the retirement plan universe. They are a viable option for immediate funds in an emergency as well as an important tool for long-term planning.
Our expert panelists discuss:
- Why HSAs are a great tool for setting aside pretax income for medical expenses.
- How HSAs are similar to—and different from—a traditional 401(k).
- How HSAs can be used during an emergency.
- Ways to maximize HSA features and benefits to create a successful and comprehensive wealth portfolio.

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:
