Key features

Saving and Spending Accounts (1)

Tax-free money

Money goes in tax-free and comes out tax-free when it’s used for eligible expenses.

Convenient payroll deductions

Contribute to your accounts easily and effortlessly.

Helpful budgeting tool

Plan for upcoming expenses by setting aside money each paycheck.

How much could you save?

Here’s an example. Let’s say Tom decides to set aside $2,000 in an HSA or FSA for the year. Normally, on that money, he’d pay $480 in federal income tax, $100 in state income tax, and $153 in FICA tax. Therefore, by contributing that $2,000 to his HSA or FSA, he’ll get a $733 tax savings for the year.

Without an HSA or FSA, Tom would pay … Savings
24% in federal income tax $480
5% in state income tax $100
7.65% in Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) tax $153
His total tax savings for the year with an HSA or FSA $733

This hypothetical illustration is for educational purposes only. Dollar amounts or savings will vary depending on income, state and city tax rules, and other factors. Please consult a tax, legal, or financial advisor about your own personal situation.

(Video) Differences Between Health Savings Accounts and Flexible Spending Accounts

Health Savings Account

With the $3,000 and $1,850 Deductible plans, you’re eligible to open and contribute money to a Health Savings Account (HSA) through TRI-AD. The HSA is a tax-free savings account that you own. You can use it to pay for eligible healthcare expenses anytime, even in retirement. You can change your contribution amount at any time during the year and it will be effective the first of the following month, subject to payroll timing.

Saving and Spending Accounts (7)

Carry unused money over.

  • All the money in your HSA is yours to keep, year after year.
  • You can build up savings to pay for future health care expenses. You can even invest your money once it reaches a minimum balance, which gives you the potential for tax-free earnings growth and a way to plan ahead for your medical costs in retirement.

*Money in an HSA can be withdrawn tax-free as long as it is used to pay for qualified health-related expenses. If money is used for ineligible expenses, you will pay ordinary income tax on the amount withdrawn, plus a 20% penalty tax if you withdraw the money before age 65.

Saving and Spending Accounts (8)

Contribution limits

The IRS sets annual limits on the total amount of money that can be contributed to your HSA. In 2023, the limits on contributions are:

  • $3,850 for employee-only coverage
  • $7,750 for family coverage

Add $1,000 to these limits if you're age 55 or older.

Who’s eligible for an HSA

In order to establish and contribute to an HSA, you:

  • Must be enrolled in either the $3,000 or $1,850 Deductible medical plan.
  • Cannot simultaneously participate in the Health Care FSA.
  • Cannot be enrolled in any other medical coverage, including a spouse’s plan or Medicare.
  • Cannot be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s tax return.

You should review IRS rules for making HSA contributions if you will turn age 65 during the year.

For more information, See IRS Publication 969.
