List to HashMap?

I have a method which presently returns a List.
Now my method needs to return (account, status) instead of just account.
I am thinking I need to change the method to return hashmap instead of list.
Can anyone suggest me better solution?

Sounds like a beginner's question . . .
Can you incorporate status and account into a single object?

What sort of object is account ? Can you not add a status field to it ?
It is sorta covered in the

PMD: LooseCouplingRule, what does this REALLY mean?
search for a value within list of HashMaps
Would a HashSet be a way to solve this problem?
