Health Savings Account (HSA)

Individuals and families with high health insurance deductibles can save money on current and future heath care expenses with a USU Credit Union Health Savings Account (HSA).

Health Savings Account benefits include:

  • Tax-Deductible – Contributions to the HSA are tax deductible, similar to an IRA.
  • Tax-Free – Withdrawals to pay qualified medical expenses are never taxed.
  • Tax-Deferred – Interest-earnings accumulate tax deferred, and if used to pay qualified medical expenses, are tax-free.
  • HSA Money Is Yours To Keep – Unused money in your HSA can rollover from year to year.

Members have several options to fund their USU Credit Union HSA, including:

  • Payroll direct deposit
  • In-person deposits

For added convenience, you may access your HSA funds by the following means:
