HSA Investment Options
Mutual Fund Platform:
Certificates are also available, for a higher yielding investment option. There can be a downside to putting your HSA funds into certificates however. If you have to cash out an HSA certificate early to pay for health care costs you will have an early withdrawal penalty to pay. That is why we recommend that you not have all of your HSA funds in certificates. A good strategy would be to keep an adequate proportion in HSA savings, with the remainder in various certificates maturing at different time periods. This would give you maximum return while lessening the potential for surrendering a certificate early.
