Adding a beneficiary to your HSA or MSA
Sign in to your account to ensure you've selected a beneficiary for your health savings account (HSA) or Medicare Advantage Medical Savings Account (MSA).
Naming your beneficiary
Take a minute to ensure your HSA or MSA information is current and that you have a beneficiary selected. A beneficiary can be one or more individuals (i.e., spouse, children, relatives, friends).
Why it matters
If you do not assign a beneficiary, your HSA or MSA funds will default to your legal surviving spouse, if you have one, or to your estate. If your funds are left to your estate, it may face heavier taxation. For those reasons, it’s important to keep your beneficiary information up to date.
