Quotes To Remember 

“You get that basically nice deduction in the beginning when you contribute the money, just like your IRA, it grows tax-free, on both settings it grows tax-free. And then like the Roth, it comes out tax-free.”

“FSA, very simple. Use it, lose it. You can carry $500, or technically the employer has the ability to say up to two-and-a-half months of a leeway or grace period, if you will.”

“I think this is probably for a lot of people, they’re like, “All right. Well, I decided that I got an HSA. I have an HSA. How should I use it?” So we talked about saving receipts, and we talked about using it as healthcare expenses come in.”
