Save smart


Health Savings Account (HSA) is a tax-advantaged savings tool that provides triple tax savings for participants in CDHP:

  • Contributions to your HSA can be made with pre-tax dollars through payroll deductions, which reduces your taxable income. Any after-tax contributions that you make to your HSA are also tax-deductible on your tax filing at the end of the year.
  • Interest and investment earnings on HSA funds grow tax-free.
  • Withdrawals from the HSA are also tax-free when used to pay for qualified healthcare expenses.
  • You can contribute to your HSA through payroll deductions, and Caterpillar will contribute “seed money” to your HSA.

Flexible Spending Account (FSA) allows you to set aside money for certain expenses before payroll deducts taxes from your paycheck. This means the amount of income your taxes are based on will be lower, so your tax liability will be lower. With an FSA, you can reduce your taxes while paying for things you’d have to pay for anyway.

Caterpillar offers two Flexible Spending Accounts:

  • Health Care (General Purpose or Limited Purpose)
  • Dependent (child or elder) Care
