HSA contributions must be made by your tax return due date, and generally are tax-deductible. The maximum amount you (and/or your employer) can contribute to your HSA each year depends on if you have self-only or family coverage. Also, if you are age 55 before the close of a taxable year, your contribution limit increases by $1,000 for the annual catch-up contribution.
You can withdraw money from your HSA tax-free if the money is used to pay qualified medical expenses as permitted under federal tax law. This includes most medical, dental, and vision care, but generally does not include health plan premiums.
Use your HSA money for medical expenses now or in retirement. Keep in mind that HSA distributions not used for qualified expenses are subject to ordinary income tax and a 20% IRS penalty tax if taken before age 65 (unless due to death or disability). There is no additional tax on distributions made after the date you are disabled, reach age 65, or die.
