Template: HR Reminder for Team to Update HSA Contributions

Each year, the IRS announces new maximum contribution limits for health savings accounts (HSA). Use this HR communication template to prepare your employees for the new year by updating their HSA contributions accordingly.


What Is a Health Savings Account (HSA)?

A health savings account (HSA) is a personal bank account with significant tax advantages that can be used by an individual to pay for qualified medical expenses, typically on high-deductible health insurance plans. 

People with HSAs need to be enrolled in a compatible, high-deductible health plan (HDHP) to utilize their benefits properly. They can then use the money from their HSAs for qualified medical expenses, which can be determined by reviewing the HDHP. 


2024 HSA Contribution Limits

The IRS released 2022-2024 cost-of-living adjusted limits for HSAs and HDHPs due to expected inflation. These new contribution caps include:

  2023 2024
