Schedule your contributions
Check to see if your employer offers payroll deduction. Or arrange to make regular deposits yourself. When you sign in to your account, you can set up one-time or recurring contributions.
Additional ways to contribute
You can transfer funds from or roll over to another HSA. Sign in to your account and download the HSA Rollover/Transfer Request for more information.
You may request a one-time contribution from a traditional or Roth IRA. Ask your IRA administrator for details.
If you have payroll contributions, the timing will be determined by your payroll calendar. Generally, your funds are available within one business day of deposit. Sign in to your account to check your balance.
Save on taxes
With an HSA, you get tax savings in three ways:
- Deposits are exempt from income tax.
- Savings grow income tax-free.
- Money spent on qualified medical expenses comes out of your HSA income tax-free.
Contributing the maximum allowed by law each year lets you get the most tax savings. Be sure to keep these contribution limits set by the IRS in mind.
