SelectAccount Discussion

    In reading the SelectAccount HSA custodial agreement, I see that only the Select Saver HSA is an FDIC insured product. The other three (thrift, basic, premium) are actually deposits in the general account of MII Life (dba SelectAccount), a life insurance company regulated under Minnesota law. As such the guarantee of principal and interest is solely based on the company’s continued claims paying ability. I have not been able to find any information about the financial strength of MII Life. Anybody have additional information or can point me in the right direction?

  • Concerned

    My current provider is pushing me into a new custodial account agreement. Until now, my employer has been paying the fees. Since we have changed health plans to a non high-deductible plan I guess that is over. Not happy about paying monthly fees, but SelectAccount does not give interest rates for “free” accounts. Should I assume that means that those are zero? (“Be glad we take your money.”? I have just under $6000 in my current account intending to save it for retirement 5 to 10 years from now. Info/suggestions are appreciated since I have about 15 days to decide and transfer the account.

      I have used SelectAccount for more than a year now and have been very happy with both their fees and customer service. For me it’s a great investing platform with Schwabb. But if you’re looking for no fees at all (with interest), then you may need to look elsewhere.

    • Hello, thank you for your question. Here is a link to our HSA products page which breaks down all of of account types and associated fees and interest rates: https://www.selectaccount.com/products/hsa/. It is true that the FreeSaver account type does not offer any interest. However it is worth saying that we will not charge you any typical banking fees many of our competitors will, so even with a monthly fee SelectAccount is still often less expensive than some “free” accounts. That being said, for only $1 a month you will gain access to our investment options through Charles Schwab as Mgoblue62 stated.
