Limit On Contributions To An HSA

Next » « Previous


The amount that you or another person can contribute to your HSA in total depends on the type of HDHP coverage you have and your age. For 2017:

  • Individual coverage: You can contribute up to $3,400 ($4,800 if you are age 55 or older).
  • Family coverage: You can contribute up to $6,750 (+$1,000 if you are age 55 or older). In the case of individuals who are married to each other, if either spouse has family coverage, both are treated as having family coverage. If each spouse has family coverage under a separate health plan, both spouses are treated as covered under the plan with the lowest deductible. The contribution limit for the spouses is divided equally unless they agree on a different division. The family contribution is reduced further by any contribution to an Archer MSA. However, both spouses may make the catch-up contributions for individuals age 55 or over without exceeding the family coverage limit.
  • The amount of your contribution is no longer capped at the amount of your deductible.

You must be an eligible individual and have the same coverage all year to contribute the full amount. If you do not qualify to contribute the full amount for the year, determine your contribution limit by using the worksheet for line 3 in the Form 8889 instructions.
