To create an HSA saver mindset, draw from the 401(k) playbook
Longer life expectancy, less help with retirement funding and economic and global circumstances are making it more difficult for people to retire. By some estimates, just to cover their cost of health care in retirement, an average couple may need $300,000—after taxes. The good news is that employers are uniquely positioned to help employees use their HSAs to fuel their retirement savings. In this program, Brian M. Hutchin from UMB Healthcare Services will describe how, by borrowing a page from the 401(k) playbook, companies can shift their workforce to a saver mentality and build a culture in which long-term financial wellness is a priority for everyone.
