Lincoln Financial Group introduces comprehensive health savings solutions for plan sponsors

New solution supports financial wellness, including medical expense management and retirement readiness, for employers and employees.

Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE:LNC) announced today the launch of an expanded suite of health savings solutions designed to empower retirement plan sponsors with a holistic approach to employee financial wellness. The comprehensive offering now includes a fully integrated Health Savings Account (HSA) that serves as a tax-efficient tool to manage qualified medical expenses, achieve savings and pursue retirement readiness.

Research shows that 45% of Americans surveyed say covering out-of-pocket medical expenses of $500 or more would be a financial hardship.¹ With healthcare costs projected to increase by an average of 5.4% annually over the next decade, employers are increasingly turning to HSAs paired with high-deductible health plans (HDHPs) as a strategic solution to help contain rising expenses and meet employee needs.² The HSA allows employees to set aside pre-tax money for eligible healthcare expenses and it can also be used to save for retirement. When given the opportunity, 60% of employees chose to enroll in an HSA-qualifying health option.³

“In the US, financial wellness is tied to overall health. Lincoln’s health savings solutions provide a comprehensive, integrated approach to both. By offering HSAs as part of their benefits package, plan sponsors can empower their employees to take control of their financial future, effectively managing healthcare expenses today while building a robust retirement savings nest egg,” said Ralph Ferraro, senior vice president, Retirement Plan Services, Lincoln Financial Group.

HSAs are an integral part of Lincoln’s health savings solutions, offering numerous advantages for employers and employees:

  • Streamlined administration and investment flexibility
  • Enhanced employee recruitment and retention
  • Triple tax savings
  • Flexibility to use funds
  • Holistic financial wellness support

Lincoln’s new HSA offering is powered by industry leading vendors, WEX (NYSE:WEX) and BPAS (Benefit Plan Administrative Services).

The HSA offering is just one way Lincoln is making benefits more beneficial for employers, employees and their families. The company continues to expand its financial wellness program through its proprietary financial wellness tool, Lincoln WellnessPATH®, and Lincoln’s Financial Wellness Marketplace.
