Posted January 3, 2023


It’s 2023! To kick off another year of providing you with the employee benefits tips and information you need, we wanted to look back at your favorite blog posts from the last year. Here are our top 10 blog posts from 2022: 

Your HSA when you change jobs

Were you among the 20% of workers expected to quit their jobs in 2022? Fortunately, your health savings account (HSA) is an employee-owned account, so it stays with you, even when you switch employers. Check out our blog post and podcast episode to learn more about your HSA options when you change jobs. 

How much should you contribute to your HSA?

An HSA comes with three key tax-free perks: Contributions are tax-free, earnings are tax-free, and withdrawals for eligible expenses are tax-free. Considering how much the average American is expected to need to cover healthcare costs in retirement, you might be wondering how much you should contribute to your HSA. This blog post will help you decide. 

2023 HSA limits announced

The IRS announced significant increases to HSA contribution limits in 2023 as a result of rising inflation. Self-only HSA participants can contribute up to $3,850, while family HSA participants can set aside $7,750 in 2023. And those who qualify for catch-up contributions can add an additional $1,000 to those limits. Learn more about the limits here. 

Why adding an FSA makes an HSA even better

Did you know that you can participate in both an HSA and a flexible spending account (FSA)? It’s true! But it’s important to know that this applies to only certain types of FSAs. Check out this blog post and watch our podcast episode to learn more about limited FSAs and why they’re the perfect complement to HSAs. 

Get to know the IRS use-or-lose rule

The IRS’ use-or-lose rule is the reason why FSA funds must be spent down by the end of the plan year. What happens when funds aren’t spent by the end of the year? And how does it affect FSA carryovers? Find out in our blog post. 

What is a dependent care FSA? 

Nearly two-thirds of parents say that childcare costs have risen in the last year. One way to combat these rising costs and save money is to participate in a dependent care FSA. Dependent care FSA participants can save on eligible childcare, elderly care, and other dependent care costs. Learn more about these plans and how much you can contribute to a dependent care FSA. 

2023 FSA and commuter limits announced

2023 contribution limits for FSAs, commuter benefits, and other plans also increased considerably due to inflation. For example, the medical FSA contribution limits rose to $3,050 for 2023, which is a $200 increase from 2022. Find out more about these limits, as well as limits for QSEHRAs and adoption assistance.
