Now that benefits open enrollment is over for most plan sponsors, it is a good time to educate those employees who have selected a high-deductible health plan about the health savings account (HSA) that may coincide with it. Something employees may be struggling with is the competing financial priorities they have and how to allocate their savings dollars. We have sources that offer tips for that. One very important piece to building HSA savings is investing the money put into the account. Plan sponsors should consider how employees use their HSAs when crafting the investment lineup. This edition of PLANSPONSOR Weekend provides information to use in HSA decisions.
