HSAs cut into 401(k) contributions: Report

first_img The Gates divorce: Lessons for financial advisers 5 Why Tony Robbins, tax shelters and financial advisers don’t mix Of course, many workers who started HSAs did not change their 401(k) contributions, and some increased them. At the 10th percentile, the change in annual 401(k) contributions was -$5,127, while at the 90th percentile it was an increase of $1,143. The median change was -$34, according to the report.One of the factors linked to higher HSA participation — the employer match — had a negative effect on 401(k) contributions. But the 401(k) matches from employers had no clear relationship.“The generosity of employer HSA contributions affects employee 401(k) contributions: Those with a higher ratio of employer to employee HSA contributions were more likely to reduce their 401(k) contributions,” according to the report.The amount of people using HSAs has continued to grow for years, as has the average account size. But most users treat their HSAs like checking accounts for ongoing medical expenses, rather than as long-term savings vehicles. And the popularity of HSAs is stymied by their pairing with high deductible health plans, which are not ideal for everyone. 2 1 For reprint and licensing requests for this article, click here,MOST READ Subscribe for original insights, commentary and analysis of the issues facing the financial advice community, from the InvestmentNews team. 4 3center_img House committee poised to advance SECURE 2.0 retirement savings bill Newsletters For the report, EBRI used data for 5.5 million HSAs, representing $11.3 billion in assets, or about 27% of the total HSA business in 2016. The 401(k) data, also for 2016, was provided in partnership with the Investment Company Institute. That data reflected $2 trillion in assets across more than 27 million accounts in about 111,000 401(k)s.Among those data sets, there were 45,132 workers who had a 401(k) and an HSA, according to EBRI. Health savings accounts can be one of the best ways to save for retirement, as contributions, investment returns and eligible expenses are all tax free. If clients have access to an HSA, most financial advisers readily encourage them to take advantage of it.But the money to fund those accounts must come from somewhere, and for many, the most obvious place appears to be the 401(k). More than half of people with 401(k)s reduce their contributions during the first year they begin participating in an HSA, the Employee Benefit Research Institute found in a report published Thursday.The results hint that many people are financially unable or unwilling to direct a higher percentage of their income to savings when a new account is added.“The results show evidence of a crowding out,” according to the EBRI report. “Overall, 56% of 401(k) participants reduced their contributions in the first year that they made HSA contributions.”Surprisingly, the effect is most pronounced among those who had been making the biggest contributions to 401(k)s, both in terms of total dollars and as a percentage of income. And even as income levels went up, so too did the percentage of people cutting back on 401(k) contributions when starting an HSA, the report found. HSAs are one of advisers’ favorite savings tools, but they might be hurting 401(k) contributions, according to a new report. InvestCloud to acquire Advicent and NaviPlan planning software House panel unanimously passes SECURE 2.0 “Those contributing the most to their 401(k) experienced the largest 401(k) declines at the median in the first year of HSA contributions. 401(k) contributions fell 19% in year two among those contributing $8,501 or more in year one,” the authors wrote.About half of workers earning between $25,001 and $75,000 cut back on 401(k) deferrals after starting an HSA, EBRI found. But 55% of those with incomes of $75,001 and $100,000 made such reductions, and it was 64% among people taking home up to $150,000. At the highest income level, above $150,000, 75% of people reduced 401(k) contributions after starting an HSA. That relationship also appeared at the lowest income level, $25,000 or less, where 63% of people pared back their 401(k) saving.last_img read more

Walmart, Fortune 500 companies take 100% renewable energy pledge

first_imgWalmart, Fortune 500 companies take 100% renewable energy pledgeTiming of these goals varies, and this brings the total to 36 companies that have taken the RE100 pledge. September 25, 2015 Christian Roselund Markets Markets & Policy Share On Wednesday, the world’s largest retailer and a group of seven other companies pledged to get 100% of their electricity from renewable energy, as part of The Climate Group’s RE100 campaign. The other seven include investment bank Goldman Sachs and other well-known brands such as Johnson & Johnson, NIKE, Procter & Gamble and Starbucks. In addition to these eight a ninth company, Steelcase took the pledge despite already reaching 100% of its electricity sourced from renewables in 2014. Organizers of the 100RE campaign stress that the move to renewable energy is a benefit not only to cmpany brands but also their bottom line. “The most ambitious companies have seen a 27 percent return on their low carbon investments – no wonder new names keep joining RE100,” noted Climate Group CEO Mark Kenber. “Lowering risk, protecting against price rises, saving millions and boosting brand is what shaping a low carbon economy is all about.” The timelines of these companies to reach this goal vary from 2015 for Voya Financial to 2050 for Johnson & Johnson, with Goldman Sachs setting a 2020 target and Nike a 2025 target. The nine bring RE100 to 36 companies that have taken the pledge since the initiative was launched in 2014. The timing of Walmart’s pledge is unclear, and the company did not respond to pv magazine inquiries by press time. However, Walmart already has the most solar PV deployed on its facilities of any U.S. company, with 105 MW deployed in 260 projects as of November 2014.This content is protected by copyright and may not be reused.

No relief expected over weekend for hot, dry conditions in West

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — There are more than 60 large, uncontained wildfires burning in 13 western states on Saturday as the region deals with bone-dry humidity levels and temperatures in the 90s and above.Dangerous heat will remain in place for the next several days across parts of the West, including much of California, Oregon, Nevada, Washington and Arizona. Excessive heat watches and warnings, heat advisories and red flag warnings have been issued for parts of the region.On Saturday, high temperatures across parts of central and northern California, including the Redding area, will be above 100 degrees. Unfortunately, there is no significant cooldown coming to this region in the next few days. Temperatures will be near or above 100 degrees from Riverside County to Shasta County, California. Additionally, there will be little relief from the heat overnight.Fresno saw temperatures over 100 degrees again on Friday, the 22nd day in a row of over 100-degree heat, a new record streak for Fresno.Relative humidity on Saturday across parts of the West, including where some of the large California fires are burning, will be as low as 5 percent. The threat for fires will persist through the weekend due to the very dry air, high temperatures and locally gusty winds.Storms move through Plains, SoutheastA line of strong to severe thunderstorms is moving through southern Kansas and into parts of Oklahoma on Saturday morning. These storms will weaken through the morning hours. There are also some strong to severe storms moving through eastern Nebraska and northeast Kansas, where localized flash flooding is possible Saturday morning.However, new summer thunderstorms are expected to develop Saturday across Wyoming to western Kansas.There is slight risk for severe weather for this region, including Cheyenne, Wyoming; Colby, Kansas; and Dodge City, Kansas. The main risk will be for damaging winds, large hail and perhaps a brief tornado.Additionally, there will be numerous strong thunderstorms with locally heavy downpours across the Southeast coast this weekend.Any slow-moving summer thunderstorm has the potential to deliver locally heavy downpours. This is a particular concern across parts of the central Plains and parts of the Carolinas, where 2 to 3 inches or more of rainfall is possible through Monday. Localized flash flooding remains a possibility.The weather patterns looks wet through the next few days across the southeast U.S., with continued chances for torrential rain from summer thunderstorms.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

The talented young singer has been on a variety of singing shows and is in the process of building his career, Hutch said.“He does a lot of things for the American Cancer Society and sings at the Relay for Life every year,” Hutch said, “His main song that he sings at all these competitions and things is ‘Don’t Stop Believin’’ and because that’s the name of our event, he asked if he could perform.”At the event, guests enjoyed an Italian buffet dinner catered by Sodexo and were given raffle tickets for a free auction that included baskets donated by families of club members and local businesses such as Edible Arrangements, Let’s Spoon and Flourish Boutique, Hutch said. She said the event was purely a celebration, not a fundraiser.“Every other event [the club] does is primarily a fundraiser. … We raise money for the national organization which is great because that goes purely towards cancer research, but this is the one thing we do that’s local and it’s to show our support as a community and as a college and as a club,” Hutch said.To raise awareness for the event, the club placed a press release in the South Bend Tribune and hung posters around campus and in local areas including Memorial Hospital, Hutch said. She said approximately 75 people attended the event.“Students joined the guests for dinner, and I think everyone learned something from talking to [the guests].  For me, it was their attitudes that affected me so profoundly,” Hutch said. “Each individual seemed to truly understand and embody the importance of living in the moment.“The families whom I sat with at dinner said that battling cancer really made them realize that you can’t sweat the small stuff. It was so inspiring for me and the other students to hear this from our guests.”Junior Bridget Condon said she was touched by cancer patient who spoke during dinner.“He spoke about his experience with cancer and how the Saint Mary’s nursing students always made his treatment days a little better,” Condon said, “It really spoke to what we, not just as a club, but as a college, are all about. Whether we realize it or not, each and every one of our little acts of service can make a huge difference in the lives of other people,” she said.Condon said she hopes the event made people aware of the immense local support available for those battling with cancer.“It was great to be able to treat these heroes to a worry free night of fun,” Condon said. “While we cannot do everything, we can certainly do some things to show our love and support in their battles.”Tags: Stand Up to Cancerlast_img read more
