Savings and Investments
To maximize your long-term savings, your HSA funds are placed in one, two, or three types of balance accounts.
Your National Advisor’s Trust Summit HSA program requires the first $500 of your HSA funds to be maintained in a “Cash” balance account. This serves as the base component of your HSA and is “liquid.” Although the money in the cash account does not earn any return, amounts deposited beyond the first $500 automatically flow into “Savings,” which earns interest on a daily variable rate.
The second HSA balance account component offered by National Advisors Trust is a “FDIC Insured Savings Account”. This fund is also “liquid,” meaning that your savings balance is accessible whenever you need more money than is currently available from your cash balance account. Interest earned is shown in the “Account Owner’s Disclosure” section below. The earnings post to your account monthly.
An added feature of your savings account is the option of using the Summit Mastercard® debit card. Your card, if made available by your PSP and elected by you, is directly connected to the funds in your savings account. This option makes accessing your HSA funds as easy and convenient as a swipe of the card.
There is a third, and optional, balance account component of National Advisors Trust’s HSA program. Investments, if made available by your PSP, and elected by you, allow you to invest funds into a variety of Mutual Funds.
The Summit HSA Investment Program offers qualified account holders a diverse range of investment alternatives to choose from, along with four professionally-managed model portfolios that support varied investment objectives and risk tolerance. This investment program is intended for long-term investments only and is not to be used for short-term cash availability.

What are the benefits of investing your HSA funds?
Many Americans will depend on personal savings and investments during retirement. Utilizing your Health Savings Account as a long-term investment vehicle is an excellent way to add to your retirement strategy.
Whether you are a current HSA account holder or you are just now enrolling, it’s a good idea to consider investing some of your account funds. Here are just a few reasons why:
- Tax-Free Investments: All contributions and earnings in your HSA are considered tax-free by the IRS. They will not be taxed unless you withdraw them for non-medical reasons.
- Portability: There is no use-it-or-lose-it rule associated with HSAs. HSAs are owned by the account holder and roll over year after year. Even if your employment status changes, the money in the account is yours to keep.
- Flexibility: You can change the amount you want to invest and the way the funds are invested. Plus, you can always access the money in your account if the need arises.
- Multiple Investment Options: Pick from one of four investment models or create your very own custom investment portfolio.
