How you make money

A health savings account (HSA) is the only type of account with a triple tax break. This means potential tax breaks on contributions, investment growth, & health-related purchases. An HSA is one of the best places to put your money if you're looking to maximize growth potential and minimize your tax burden. 

Balances in your Starship Spending Account (“Spending”) earn . 01% Annual Percentage Yield (“APY”) on deposit balances $0.01 – $1,999.99 and .04% APY on deposit balances $2,000 and above. We use the Spending account’s end of day balance to calculate the interest earned that day. 

If you invest some or all of your health savings in a Starship Investing Account you will also earn through stock price appreciation + dividends. For reference: according to historical records, the average annual return from the S&P Index since its inception in 1926 through 2018 is approximately 10%–11%. The average annual return since adopting 500 stocks into the index in 1957 through 2018 is roughly 8%. Adjusted for inflation, the historical average annual return is around 7%. However, it's important to note that each Robo has their own investment strategy that can influence returns.
