Adult Children HSA

Non-Dependent Children Can Now Open a Separate HSA

When the Affordable Care Act (2010), went into effect it included a provision that children be allowed to remain on their parent’s health insurance plan until the age of 26. This created a unique HSA provision that allowed those individuals to open an HSA (and contribute) as long as they are no longer a tax dependent. This is an incredible opportunity for young individuals to create a long-term health savings vehicle that you can use or invest for their entire lives.

How Much Can Families Contribute to a Health Savings Account?

Who can contribute to the Family HSA limit?

Individuals can contribute toward the annual family HSA maximum if they have an HSA-eligible plan and their health plan covers themselves + at least one additional person. A married couple can also choose to have individual HSAs if each individual is covered under an eligible HSA health plan. In this latter case, their total HSA contribution for they year cannot exceed the total yearly family contribution ($6,900 for 2018). Each spouse can contribute half the amount or one can contribute 90% and the other 10%, but when combined, it can’t exceed the family maximum.
