Expect the unexpected: HSA questions from employees

employee question

As an employer, you are busy running your business and you probably don’t have a lot of spare time to learn all the detailed ins and outs of every benefit you provide to your employees. When HSA questions come up, it can be frustrating to track down answers and communicate with your employees. You’re not alone; this is a common problem for many employers.

 

Employees who receive benefits will usually approach their employer first when they have questions. What if you had someone to refer them to for answers? From contribution and tax questions to spending and investment questions, HSAs (like most benefits) have a learning curve.

Here are a few ways HealthEquity helps employers field these questions:
