Health Care Savings Program
Nov 15, 2007

The Health Care Savings program approved by IRS allows money to be set aside by employees for medical use (ins, meds, premiums etc.).

I am a union executive and was asked the question if this would be adverse to receiving SSI should that need arise after severing employment, when a person has funds in this medical set-aside. Any idea?

Response from Ms. Franzoi

Having an HSA has no impact on eligiblity for SSI.
