Have Your Payroll and HSA Systems Met?

by | Dec 14, 2021

Is your HR team understaffed and overwhelmed?  If you answered yes to this question, it wouldn’t be a big surprise since many businesses feel this pain.  According to a recent study, tedious administration tasks take up over 73% of a human resource department’s time (1).  While solutions exist, many are costly, and others require an upfront time commitment your HR team can’t afford to make.

Is HSA Automation Your Answer?  

One solution you could seek without spending much time or money is automating processes by leveraging your existing payroll and benefits systems. Many small and midsize employers are adding a health savings account (HSA) program to their benefits package. HSAs allow their employees the triple tax advantage (quadruple-tax advantage if you count FICA tax savings) of no taxes on contributions, earnings, or distributions when used for qualified medical expenses. However, the additional benefits come with the potential for adding work to an already overwhelmed team.  Luckily, existing options in the marketplace allow you to quickly and seamlessly add an HSA program without adding significant time and resources to manage it. 

The SavingsOak Automation Solution

SavingsOak makes it incredibly easy to offer your employees a modern and feature-rich HSA through existing technology integrations with over 125 of the largest payroll providers. Through these existing integrations, your HR team, specifically those handling benefits and payroll, can quickly push employee enrollment data and contribution data from your payroll system to the HSA platform without needing to log into a separate application, upload files and respond to error messages.

Once the SavingsOak HSA program setup is complete, your payroll system will automatically talk to the HSA system with the appropriate employee census data triggering an email from SavingsOak to your employees to complete the enrollment process. Enrollment for the employee takes less than 2 minutes, and they’re ready to start making pre-tax contributions!

Every employer offering a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP), or as we like to call them, lower-premium plans,” should also give their employees the advantages of an HSA.  SavingsOak makes it easy to set up the plan, submit employee information, and process payroll contributions – all within the comfort of your existing payroll system.  Give your employees a great benefit and ease the burden on your valued HR team today!

    HSAs Help Women Make Progress Towards Financial Security

    Women face more challenges when it comes to savings and retirement. It is primarily because women encounter a wage gap that follows them into their retirement years. Women only have 70% of the overall income in retirement that men enjoy. Many in that age group have no retirement savings at all.  In light of these facts, women need to plan for their retirement and consider health savings accounts (HSA) as a tool to help them achieve their goals and set themselves up to be financially secure.
