HSAs Could Be a Retirement Advisor's New Best Friend

The HSA may become an advisor’s best friend for tax advantaged long-term savings.  HSA balances are growing fast as healthcare consumerism takes off, creating opportunities and threats for retirement plan advisors.  While HSAs can be a new source of income for retirement plan advisors, they also can siphon off 401(k) contributions as healthcare cost shifting to employees accelerates.  Learn how you can help participants and sponsors save more and get improved tax benefits from holistic coordination of 401(k) and HSA deferrals.  Boosting HSA and 401(k) savings isn’t just a path to more revenue, it’s a way for strategically minded advisors to deliver more value to the C-suite.

The 401k Coach has teamed up with Dalbar, Inc. to bring you this webcast to review how advisors can proactively set reasonable compensation and make more money at the same time. We will look at two different methods of assessing compensation: cost based and benefit based.
