The number one issue employees have in dealing with individual retirement accounts (IRAs) and health savings accounts (HSAs) is a lack of confidence. With a tax code over 73,000 pages, it is no wonder employees shy away from these products.
How would you answer these questions?
- Do I have earned income?
- Can I take a deduction by contributing to a Traditional IRA?
- Can I use my IRA as loan collateral?
- Can I borrow from my IRA?
- Can I use my IRA to help purchase a house for my step-son?
- What medical expenses qualify for my HSA?
- Can I deduct my HSA contributions?
Most employees would advise the member to see their financial advisor. Without the confidence to handle IRAs or HSAs, basic questions can cause panic. However, having the ability to answer both basic and complex questions can make the difference between building or losing banking relationships. This program will build employee confidence, and unlike any other IRA and HSA programs, will teach staff how to be the professional that members seek.
