The reference to using Sterling HSA with a Vanguard account is absolutely incorrect and misleading: after multiple calls with Vanguard, Vanguard has definitively concluded that Vanguard will not setup an account per SterlingHSA's specifications.

Any thoughts?

Saturna Capital's brokerage account has a $10 surcharge for Vanguard funds, as well as other fund families. http://www.saturna.com/sbs/fundvest_families.shtml has the list of funds that incur a surcharge.

I have updated the page. LadyGeek 01:34, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

One note: I am currently a BenefitWallet user. The monthly fee I am charged is 2.95/month, even with a balance exceeding $6,650.00. So that may warrant an update. I offer this link for support: https://mybenefitwallet.com/hsa/forms/ratesandfees Thanks for this resource!

Dear 71.163.22.17, thanks for posting this. Your comment, along with a few other items I've read from different people explaining different fees, led me to to figure out that BenefitWallet has different fees for different plans, so I updated the section accordingly. It appears that the fees for the investment platform are the same for all, but for the checking portion, it seems that different plans have different fees. I'm going to guess that larger employers with bigger balances can negotiate lower fees, and the participants in smaller plans probably get stuck with higher fees (that happens with 401(k) plans a lot too). --Hoppy08520 10:22, 13 February 2016 (EST)
