  • No minimum balance to open – or to earn dividends.
  • Debit card – Your HSA debit card makes it convenient to pay for qualified expenses at thousands of locations that accept Visa debit cards.

Do you offer a 'family' HSA and can I deposit money online?

1) We set up an HSA with another credit union and just recently found out that we have maxed out the contributions we can make for the year because it was set up as an individual account. The IRS limit is higher for a family account, but that CU doesn't offer a family account. 2) can I scan a check online to deposit into your HSA. I know you offer it for checking account deposits, but does it work with the HSA?
Asked by: Anonymous
1) Yes, you can setup a family HSA account with DCU. 2) Not at this time but you can scan the check into your checking/savings account and then do an online transfer into your HSA a/c.

Can my employer make deposits into my HSA account?

My current employer makes pretax deposits in an exisiting HSA account with HSA bank. I would like to switch over to DCU because of all the fees associated with the HSA bank account. Can my employer deposit my withholdings directly into my HSA account with DCU? Is there any information on how to do this?
Asked by: Anonymous
The link has changed. You will now have to go <Account Manager>. Then select <Account Info>. Then select <Manage Accounts>. Select <Direct Deposit>. Hope this helps anyone trying to do the same. DCU customer service rocks!!
