Health Savings Account (HSA)

Adult onset chicken pox isn't something you typically plan for — but it could happen. Be prepared for any medical scenario with a taxed-advantaged Health Savings Account from Blue Ridge Bank. Set aside year-round and receive interest above standard savings on every dollar.

And regardless of life changes, your HSA always remains in your name — not your boss's, company's, spouse's, etc. You can't plan your health, but you can be prepared. Even out the playing field with an HSA.
