“We’re increasingly seeing HSAs function as a critical resource for Americans to fund their care today, tomorrow, and in retirement,” noted Harrison Stone, General Counsel, ConnectYourCare. “In fact, our research shows that 45% of account holders elect an HSA because of the long-term benefits, over more immediate benefits like tax savings and lower premiums. Annual contribution limit increases allow HSAs to maintain their value and further grow their role as a key retirement planning building block.”
