2024 HSA Contribution Limits

January 18, 2024

For groups who offer a high-deductible health plan

Each year, total contributions to a health savings account (HSA) may not exceed the annual limits set by the IRS. This is good information to share with your employees who have a qualified high-deductible health plan with an HSA account.

The 2024 limits are:

  • Deductible minimum that qualifies for an HSA: $1,600 for individual; $3,200 for family
  • Maximum out of pocket: $8,050 for individual; $16,100 for family
  • HSA contribution limit: $4,150 for individual; $8,300 for family
  • Catch-up contribution for 55+: $1,000 (unchanged from 2023)

Keep in mind, your employee must have a qualified high-deductible health plan to contribute to an HSA.

What’s a health savings account?

HSAs allow a person to set money aside for IRS-approved medical expenses. Think of it as a bank account just for healthcare expenses.

What are the benefits of an HSA?

  • HSA contributions are tax free.
  • A person can use HSA money to pay copays, deductibles, and coinsurance.
  • HSA money never expires—even if the person changes jobs, changes health plans, or retires.
  • A person can even invest HSA money in a range of mutual funds, stocks, and bonds.
