HSA contributions and limits

Because your HSA is a bank account, anyone can contribute to it, including your employer and your family or friends. But you’ll likely be the primary contributor.

No matter who puts money in, you’re allowed so much each year.

2018 contribution limits

Individual: $3,450

Family: $6,850 (lowered from $6,900 on 3/5/18 per IRS regulation)

Note: Those aged 55 or older can contribute $1,000 as a "catch-up" contribution any time during the year.

High-deductible health plan limits

When you have an HSA, you also have a high-deductible health plan (HDHP), which sets the limits for how much you have to pay for your health care services until the health insurance starts paying.

Family: $2,700

2018 HDHP maximum out-of-pocket amounts
