  • Employees, self-employed people, employers, family members and other people can contribute to a Health Savings Account (HSA).
  • Contributions must be made in cash.
  • Contributions can be made any time throughout the year. The most benefit comes from funding the plan early in the year.
  • There are limits on the amount that can be contributed to an HSA that change each year.
  • Rollovers from MSAs and other HSAs are permitted and don't have to be in cash.
  • You are penalized if you contribute more than the legal limits. Excess contributions can be withdrawn without penalty the same year.

For additional information, see:

NOTE: You must reduce the amount you, or any other person, can contribute to your HSA by the amount of any non-taxable contributions made by your employer that are excludable from your income. This includes amounts contributed to your account by your employer through a cafeteria plan. (Employer contributions are reported on your W-2.)
