Help me with an HSA
« on: July 13, 2018, 08:26:40 AM »
I'm trying to help my in-laws with their HSA. FIL's employer deposits funds into an HSA at a local bank. It's a savings account earning .15%. MIL wants to keep some funds ($2k-ish) in the local bank to pay day to day bills, but they've got over $16k in the account right now, and that's substantially more than their deductible.

Can I help her transfer funds to Health Equity and let money accumulate in their HSA account at the local bank, just as it has been?

Yes.

How To Rollover an HSA On Your Own and Avoid Trustee Transfer Fee may have enough information.  If not, what do you seek?

Thanks, the situation in that article sounds exactly like theirs. It doesn't sound like there will be any problem.
