  • Contributing to a Health Savings Account

    Contributing to a Health Savings Account is easy – and it comes with some great tax advantages.

    Who Can Contribute?

    • Employers and employees can contribute to HSA accounts as long as the account holder meets the requirements for HSA eligibility
    • Family members or any other person can make contributions on behalf of an eligible individual

    Tax Advantages:

    • Contributions are 100% tax-deductible
    • Funds grow on a tax-deferred basis and if the funds are used for an eligible expense, the funds are tax-free
    • Funds rollover from year to year and funds used after age 65 are used tax-free for eligible expenses including Medicare premiums or at your normal tax rate for any other reason

    Contributions Are:

    • Tax-deductible for the account holder unless made by the employer
    • Owned by the account holder and remain theirs until the funds are used
    • Able to be made at any point during the contribution year, up to the individual's tax deadline (usually April 15, just like IRAs)
    • Catch-up contributions for those 55 and older are $1,000

    How to Make Contributions:

    • At a branch by simply making a deposit to your account
    • Mail a check
    • Payroll deduction
    • Transfer within Online Banking
