Presentation Summary

Tax regulations are only getting more complicated. As service providers and consultants, knowing how and when to utilize these benefits can increase your value proposition. Retirement and health plan solutions are often siloed and as a result they are underutilized. During this presentation we will help you understand how these plans work and where and when they should be utilized. 

Learning objectives:

  • Fundamentals of consumer driven health accounts
  • Which clients and circumstances are appropriate for each type of plan
  • HSA/Recordkeeper integration opportunities & benefits
