The Amazing Financial Benefits of HSAs and FSAs | Rida Wong

FSAs and HSAs have been a hot topic in recent months due to multiple legislative changes regarding deadlines and product eligibility. All of these changes have the potential to impact you if you don't fully understand them. Let’s get in the know with Rida Wong, President of Health-E Commerce, and understand the amazing financial benefits of HSAs and FSAs.Get this -More than 70 million Americans are currently enrolled in a flexible spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA) which can help them save money on taxes every year and pay for healthcare expenses now and in retirement (for HSAs). Now, just like flavors of ice cream, HSAs and FSAs have some things in common and some things that differ. Once you’re in the know, you can choose what flavor of tax-advantaged account works for you. But what I love about each of these is the ability to use those tax-advantaged dollars (think of it like buying stuff at wholesale prices) for everyday purchases like band-aids, over-the-counter allergy meds, makeup wipes, lotion, and so much more. Our guest Rida is going to demystify it all.LinksFSAstore.com http://www.fsastore.com HSAstore.com http://www.hsastore.comWellDeservedHealth.com http://www.welldeservedhealth.comEpisode SponsorsTry Warby Parker’s free Home Try-On program: Order 5 pairs of glasses to try at home for free for 5 days – there’s no obligation to buy!

How to Talk to Kids About Money (with Gregg Murset)
