Investing in securities involves risks, and there is always the potential of losing money when you invest in securities.
Bank of America, N.A. makes available The HSA for Life® Health Savings Account as a custodian only. The HSA for Life is intended to qualify as a Health Savings Account (HSA) as set forth in Internal Revenue Code section 223. However, the account beneficiary establishing the HSA is solely responsible for ensuring satisfaction of eligibility requirements set forth in IRC sec 223. If an individual/employee establishes a HSA and s/he is not otherwise eligible, s/he will be subject to adverse tax consequences. In addition, an employer making contributions to the HSA of an ineligible individual may also be subject to tax consequences. We recommend that applicants and employers contact qualified tax or legal counsel before establishing a HSA.
Bank of America does not sponsor or maintain the Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) / Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRA) that you establish. The programs are sponsored and maintained solely by the employer offering the plan, or by an individual establishing an independent plan. Bank of America acts solely as claims administrator performing administrative tasks pursuant to an agreement with, and at the direction of, the sponsoring employer or individual under an independent plan. The sponsoring employer or individual under an independent plan is solely responsible for ensuring such arrangements comply with all applicable laws.
