HSA withdraw questions

I am taking the HR block basic tax course. We discussed HSA's and he and I had a point of discussion:

I interpret HSA rules to be that you can withdraw HSA monies in any year after the HSA was created for a valid medical expense.

The instructor said you can only withdraw from an HSA in the year you incurred the medical expense.

Other opinions?

The instructor is wrong. You are correct.
"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)

You are correct sir !

And you should also get a 1099 SA from your HSA trustee to show how much was taken out of the account for the tax year.
