Annual contribution limits

Each year, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) sets contribution limits for health savings accounts (HSAs).

Contributing the maximum to your HSA each year could help you build up your nest egg so you're prepared for expected, and unexpected, health care costs.

2021 HSA contribution limits:

  • An individual with coverage under a qualifying high-deductible health plan (deductible not less than $1,400) can contribute up to $3,600 — up $50 from 2020 — for the year to their HSA. The maximum out-of-pocket has been capped at $7,000. 
  • An individual with family coverage under a qualifying high-deductible health plan (deductible not less than $2,800) can contribute up to $7,200 — up $100 from 2020 — for the year. The maximum out-of-pocket has been capped at $14,000.

2022 HSA contribution limits:

  • An individual with coverage under a qualifying high-deductible health plan (deductible not less than $1,400) can contribute up to $3,650 — up $50 from 2021 — for the year to their HSA. The maximum out-of-pocket has been capped at $7,050.
  • An individual with family coverage under a qualifying high-deductible health plan (deductible not less than $2,800) can contribute up to $7,300 — up $100 from 2021 — for the year. The maximum out-of-pocket has been capped at $14,100.

You have until the tax filing deadline (typically April 15) to make contributions to your HSA for the previous year.

Don't forget: Eligible individuals, 55 or older, can contribute an additional catch-up contribution of $1,000 per year. If your spouse is also 55 or older, he or she may establish a separate HSA and make a “catch-up” contribution to that account.

Request an IRA distribution

You can make a one-time contribution from a traditional IRA or Roth IRA into your HSA. Contact your IRA administrator to request a distribution. Keep in mind that the amount of the contribution cannot be more than you are eligible to contribute to your HSA for the tax year. If your employer contributes to your HSA, make sure to take that into account.
