I’m clueless when it comes to cars. I take the bus to work, MAX to the airport and pretty much avoid driving at all costs (thanks Uber!). And despite my best efforts, my life is still dependent on them. You can imagine my anxiety when it comes to dealing with mechanics. They might as well be speaking a foreign language. As with most of life’s mundane occurrences, I can relate with Seinfeld’s George Costanza and Jerry Seinfeld conversation about mechanics.
As a financial planner, I’m sympathetic to those intimidated or frustrated with the financial services industry. After all, getting a new carburetor is one thing, investing your nest-egg or navigating the tax-code is whole other. For those that feel this way about coordinating their finances, this blog post is for you and is going to focus on one area of financial planning that has gained popularity in recent years: Health Savings Accounts.
