Important Information: New Rules Impacting IRA Rollovers in Effect Beginning January 1, 2015


Coverdell Educational Savings Accounts, Health Savings Accounts, Traditional IRAs, Roth IRAs, and SEP Plan IRAs are insured for an additional $250,000.


A Health Savings Account, or HSA, is an IRA-like account that is designed exclusively for covering medical expenses incurred by the person who establishes the account and his or her dependents.


In order for HSA assets to retain their tax-free status, they may only be withdrawn and used for certain expenses.1 These expenses include: most medical, dental and vision care, premiums for long-term care insurance, health insurance when unemployed, and certain health insurance premiums after age 65.  Funds used for non-medical expenses after age 65 are treated as taxable income.


HSA Options

HSA Certificate

Choose an HSA Certificate to maximize the growth of your HSA. Terms range from 3 months to 5 years. The One-Year Add-On HSA Certificate can be opened with as little as $50.00 and may be added to at anytime, making this a great option for payroll deduction. HSA Certificates allow for one withdrawal before the maturity date without an early withdrawal penalty. If you will be making more frequent withdrawals, we recommend the HSA IMMA for greater flexibility.


The HSA Insured Money Management Account, or HSA IMMA, is a variable rate savings that offers a tiered rate of return based on the daily balance. Minimum initial deposit is only $50 and you may make additional deposits for any amount and at any time. Electronic transfers are limited to 6 per month according to federal Regulation D and there are no limits to the amount of times you may access funds in person at one of our branch locations. This account can also provide overdraft protection for your HSA Checking.

1Be sure to discuss your specific tax situation with your tax advisor.

Rolling over your IRA is perfect when changing jobs or for keeping your retirement savings on track. An MSUFCU IRA is a great way to ensure your funds are invested to your tax benefit, whether the funds are with a Traditional or Roth.


Direct Rollover

Direct Rollover is a qualified retirement plan or tax-sheltered annuity distribution that is sent directly from the plan administrator to an IRA. Funds moved to an IRA via a direct rollover are not subject to federal income tax withholding.


Indirect Rollover

An IRA owner may withdraw funds from an IRA once in a 12-month period and pay no tax or IRS penalties provided the funds are rolled over to a similar plan within 60 days.



A Direct Transfer is a movement of IRA funds from an existing IRA (this includes an Accumulation, Rollover, Spousal, or SEP Plan) to a like plan. A Direct Transfer can only be made between IRA custodians or trustees. There are no limitations to the number of times that an IRA owner may initiate a Direct Transfer and there are no tax implications when transferring funds between financial institutions.
