How the HRA Works
Posted On: Jun 14, 2019

How the HRA Works

Established as a Voluntary Employee Benefit Association (VEBA) trust under Section 501(c)(9) of the Internal Revenue Code, the HRA offers employers the opportunity to help their employees pay for post-employment health care expenses on a tax-free basis.

The plan allows employers to make tax-free contributions to their employees’ accounts.  Employees may make tax-free withdrawals from those accounts upon separation from service or retirement.  The money can be used to pay for health insurance premiums and/or qualified out-of-pocket expenses (such as prescription drugs, eyeglasses, and office visit co-pays) incurred by employees and their eligible dependents.  For specific information about eligible expenses, employers should refer to their plan summary. 

Because the HRA program allows tax-free contributions by employers, it not only creates a post-employment benefit for employees, but it may provide a way for employers to lessen their future tax liability.

  • If contributions to the HRA are being made from accumulated leave, such as sick and vacation leave, employers can reduce their future tax liability associated with payment of these amounts.
  • Employers save all payroll taxes associated with contributions, thus providing additional funds for the employer to utilize to support their overall benefit programs for employees.
  • Employees’ account balances are not subject to federal or state income taxes when deposited, while growing, or when withdrawn for qualified expenses.
  • Ownership of the HRA account can be either the employer or the employees.
