Are Health Savings Accounts better than a 50% employer-match on a 401(k)? - Greg Geisler

Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are quasi-retirement accounts because of the ability to save tax at contribution, not be taxed on the earnings if the contributions are invested, and withdraw funds tax-free if the funds are used to pay for qualified medical expenses from either current or prior years. 

The tax treatment of HSAs is so favorable, that a contribution to it can end up making an individual wealthier than a contribution to a qualified employer-sponsored retirement account including the employer’s matching contribution! 

This fact raises the issue of whether there is a tax-efficient order for investing (e.g., HSAs, Roth and Tax-Deferred Retirement Accounts, Nonqualified) and Paying Down Debts? This presentation presents the tax-efficient order that will maximize wealth.

In “Are Health Savings Accounts better than a 50% employer-match on a 401(k)?” by Greg Geisler, you will:

  1. Learn when an employee’s HSA contribution increases wealth more than an employer’s 401(k) matching contribution and vice versa;
  2. Learn the order to invest and pay down debts to maximize wealth;
  3. Be able to rank order all of the different ways to invest under the income tax law: HSAs.
