Preparing for Retirement

Invest some of what you earn today for what you plan to accomplish tomorrow.
  • Increase Your Palmetto Health Tax-Sheltered Annuity Savings Plan Contributions. If you are an eligible team member, you can earn a dollar-for-dollar match of your contributions from Palmetto Health, up to at least 3.5 percent of your biweekly pay. That’s like getting “free” money! You can save up to $18,000 per year (including the Palmetto Health contribution). If you’re over 50, you can save an additional $6,000. Learn more.
  • Consider Contributing to a Health Savings Account. One of the benefits of a Health Savings Account (HSA) is that you can roll over the balance year after year. In effect, you can use your HSA as supplemental retirement income once you reach age 65. Learn more.
