Want to Fund Your HSA with Your IRA? Here's How

Did you know that you can use your IRA to fund your Health Savings Account (HSA)? You may be able to take advantage of a little known part of the tax code that allows a transaction called a Qualified HSA Funding Distribution (QHFD). Here's how.

HSA Rules Get Tricky Once You Hit Age 65

An HSA has been described as offering triple tax benefits. One, contributions are deductible. Two, there is no taxation on funds while they are in the HSA and, three, distributions taken for qualified medical expenses are tax-free. Not a bad deal! When you reach age 65, however, there are some important changes in store for your HSA.
