*Brokerage accounts are the sole responsibility of the account owner. Carefully weigh the advantages and disadvantages of investing your HSA funds before doing so. Investment accounts are not FDIC insured and are not bank guaranteed. Investment accounts are not deposit accounts or obligations of HSA Bank and may lose value. Performance data and ratings represent past performance and are not a guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate and investors' shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than original cost

**Available for current members. HSA Bank does not charge a fee for a rollover or transfer: please check with your current HSA Administrator regarding fees associated with the closing of your previous account(s).

Tips for Navigating the HSA Transfer or Rollover Process

It is important to understand the elements of a Health Savings Account transfer or rollover when making the decision to consolidate. HSA Bank has provided a brief list of tips to help you navigate the process:

  • HSA to HSA transfers are free and can be completed without limit
  • HSA rollovers are free, but can only be rolled over once within a 12 month period
    • Members can deposit HSA funds to a personal account then send a personal check
    • Can also sign over the closing check by endorsing the back and including "For Deposit Only – HSA Bank"
  • HSA Bank does not count HSA transfers or HSA rollovers against the current tax-year IRS contribution limit. However, if you made current tax-year contributions to your prior HSA, those contribution amounts will be counted toward the annual IRS contribution limit, and will be reported to the IRS by your previous custodian.
  • HSA Bank does not charge any fees for transfer or rollover of your HSA accounts, your existing provider may charge an account closing fee.

When Transferring Funds From an IRA to an HSA

  • A transfer of an IRA to an HSA can occur once per person, per lifetime
  • The transferring IRA and HSA must be owned by the same individual (no such thing as a joint IRA or HSA)
  • This transfer does count toward the annual contribution limit
  • Can be transferred from a Traditional or Roth IRA without further restrictions
  • Can be transferred from an SEP or Simple IRA as long as the IRA is no longer considered "ongoing" by IRS definition
  • IRA Funds are non-transferable to spouse or partner HSA accounts
