On Sept. 29, Milwaukee Magazine Associate Publisher Katie Williams hosted a free webinar discussion with Associated Bank’s CFA and VP of Investment Portfolio Management Lora Olenchek and Associated Bank’s SVP and Director of HSA and Health Benefits Melissa Hukriede.
The conversation was all about how to maximize the benefits of your Health Savings Account. From how to get the account started and make contributions, to how to make payments using your HSA, the experts covered both the basics and some more advanced scenarios.
“An HSA is a pre-tax savings vehicle for medical expenses,” Olenchek says. “They are what we call a triple-savings advantage for investments. Basically it’s really a kind of unique investment type because not all investment vehicles are going to let you contribute, let your assets grow and let you make withdrawals all tax free.”
After the discussion, the pair took viewer questions.
