Health Savings Account (HSA)

Health Savings Account (HSA)

Peoples Bank offers health savings accounts (HSA), which is an account established by an individual to pay for medical expenses. HSAs are offered in conjunction with a high deductible health insurance policy; the high deductible policy provides protection against major medical expenses while the HSA is used to pay for day-to-day medical expenses. An important benefit of an HSA is that you can use the savings to pay for eligible medical expenses for you or your family tax-free; contributions are tax-deductible and distributions are tax-free. Money you do not spend can carry forward to future years and you can even use the money penalty-free after age 65 for any purpose you want.*

Am I eligible?

To be eligible for an HSA, you must be:

  • You can’t be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s tax return.
