Devenir's 2021 year-end HSA research report shows there are $98 billion in HSA assets nationwide in more than 32 million accounts. Over 7 percent of HSAs have at least a portion of their funds invested. 

When can HSA participants change their contributions?  

One of the perks of an HSA is that participants can change their contribution amount at any time! 

Who is eligible for an HSA?   

Your employees must be enrolled in an HSA-eligible health plan (or HDHP) to be eligible to participate in an HSA. 

How do HSA catch-up contributions work?  

HSA participants who are 55 years of age or older can contribute an extra $1,000 annually. That means these HSA participants eligible for catch-up contributions have 2023 limits of $4,850 for self-only and $8,750 for family coverage.
