HSA For Retirement Savings: How Health Savings Accounts Fit Into the Bigger Picture

The HSA for retirement savings seems to be gaining traction at a steady pace. The latest numbers put total Health Savings Account (HSA) assets around $30.2 billion at the end of 2015, which is triple the 4.2 billion amount reported in 2009 by the 100 largest HSA administrators. The lure of HSAs as retirement savings is the triple tax advantage of tax-deductible contributions, tax-free earnings, and tax-free withdrawals.
