2020 Health Savings Account limits
Share
clear

Good news, the annual HSA contribution limits continue to increase (a little bit). For 2020 a person with employee only coverage will be able to contribute $3,350, up from $3,500 in 2019. If you cover dependents on your medical plan you can put $7,100 away on a pre-tax, tax free basis. This is a $100 increase from 2019. 

One of the challenges I have with HSA rules is why a person has to have a $2,800 deductible to be eligible to contribute. I understand if you have a "shared" deductible it's only $1,400 but those are the exception to the rule. I am a huge HSA fan and encourage everyone who is eligible to try it because there is nothing to lose. 

Many financial experts are saying an HSA even without a match is a better long-term retirement strategy than your 401-k (traditional or Roth). The reason is that you can put in tax deductible dollars on the frontend, your money grows tax-free and if taken out for qualified expenses comes out tax-free. That is a fantastic program, get on board, set up your account and fund it as heavily as possible.
