Lilly HSA Plan Changes – Effective October 3, 2017

Sep 9th, 2017

Lilly has recently announced changes to the investment menu within the Health Savings Account (HSA). Effective October 3, 2017, all funds are moving from Class A to Institutional Class Shares. This will not be a change in the actual funds or underlying investments, but the fund ticker symbols will be different and fees will be lower. You will automatically be moved to the new investments on October 2. No action is required on your part.

If you have automated investing set up on your HSA, those instructions will automatically be transferred to the new Institutional Class shares of the same fund(s). No action is required on your part.

In addition, as of September 25, 2017, new investments into Dreyfus Premier Strategic Value (DAGVX.LW) and Dreyfus Appreciation Fund (DGAGX) will no longer be allowed. These funds are being eliminated from the HSA, however, if you currently invest in these funds, you may continue to hold the investments or move them to a new fund at any time.

Gabelli Asset Fund has a short-term trading fee. New investments in Class A shares will be blocked beginning September 22 to help participants avoid being subject to this fee. The Institutional Class Shares will re-open for new investments on October 3. Any automated investing scheduled during this blocked period will be executed on October 3.

Three new index funds will be added. Vanguard Mid Cap Index (VIMAX), Vanguard Total International Stock Index (VTIAX) and Vanguard Total Bond Market Index (VBTLX).
