Getting Started with Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) in Zenefits

If your group offers a Health Savings Account (HSA) eligible plan, you can sign up for an HSA administered through Zenefits.

To begin the setup process, you can take the steps below.

  1. Click the Health Savings Account app.
  2. Proceed through the self guided setup flow where you'll enter:
  • Company information
  • Start date for the HSA
  • Company contribution towards the plan
  • Bank information
Keep in mind, only administrators with HR permissions will have access to set up an HSA account. This means brokers with our Certified Broker Partner program do not have access to set an HSA up on behalf of a group. The group administrator(s) will need to set this up on their own.

Note: If you don't see the Health Savings Account app and you're an administrator with HR permissions, this means your group doesn't currently offer an HSA eligible plan.
