HRA VEBA Accounts
HRA VEBA (Health Reimbursement Account a Voluntary Employees’ Beneficiary Association)
An HRA is a type of health plan that puts you in control. It’s a savings account for your family’s medical care expenses and premiums. The money comes from your employer. Depending on your employer’s plan design, you can begin spending your HRA right away, or save it up until you meet certain eligibility requirements, such as separation from service or retirement.
You get to put your money to work by choosing from a menu of available investment funds. To learn more, read our Investment Fund Information brochure. Also, our Investment Fund Overview contains quarterly performance data for each fund. To get the most current versions of these items, go to hraveba.org and click Investments.
