IRS raises HSA contribution limits for 2021
The IRS has issued annual inflation-adjusted limits for contributions to health savings accounts permitted to participants in high-deductible health plans. Most amounts have increased slightly from 2020 amounts.
For 2021, the annual limit on deductible contributions is $3,600 for individuals with self-only coverage under an HDHP (a $50 increase from 2020) and $7,200 for family coverage (a $100 increase from 2020).
The limits on annual deductibles are also subject to annual inflation adjustments. For 2021, the lower limit on the annual deductible for an HDHP is $1,400 for self-only coverage and $2,800 for family coverage, both unchanged from 2020. The upper limit for out-of-pocket expenses is $7,000 for self-only coverage and $14,000 for family coverage, both increased from 2020.
