Description:

Most employers and HR professionals know about health savings accounts (HSAs), but how can you guarantee that you are making the most out of this tax-favorable vehicle and staying in compliance?

Once you make the decision to offer HSAs to your employees, you must address a variety of issues in connection with implementing the new benefit program, including effective communications to employees and ensuring that you are in compliance with all of the relevant laws.

Join us when a skilled employee benefits attorney will explain how to master your organization’s compliance obligations concerning HSAs.

You’ll learn:

  • Implications of offering HSAs, and how they affect your ERISA compliance obligations
  • Who may contribute to an HSA, and whether the employer must make contributions
  • Maximum HSA contribution limits for 2018
  • Whether and how Medicare or VA eligibility affect HSA eligibility
  • How to get a handle on the issue of “aging out” and Medicare for purposes of determining HSA contribution ineligibility
    “Comparability” requirements for employer contributions and corresponding tax implications
    What to do if your company over-contributes to an employee’s HSA
  • Whether an employer may legally specify who benefits from or is able to use funds the company contributes to an HSA
  • What to do if you have an employee signing up for Medicare who will need to drop his or her HSA benefit—is a mid-year FSA sign-up permitted?
  • How new DOL regulations barring “conflicted” investment advice for 401(k) plan participants could extend to advice given to workers enrolled in HSAs

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
