We're all getting older and we need to plan for the day when Medicare kicks in, at 65 years old. Danielle has an effective, tax-advantaged strategy for financing your eventual retirement and Medicare benefits. It all starts with an HSA (Health Savings Account) and a high-deductible medical insurance policy. If you're under 55 you can put away $3500 per annum and deduct it from your taxable income. Over 55 and the number goes up to $4500. Best of all there are no minimum distribution amounts and you can pass any balances on to your heirs. If you're in your 50's or even younger this can be a great way to minimize taxes and you'll be able to pay your deductible and out of pocket expenses in pre-tax dollars, a great savings.
