2017 HSA Limits

The 2017 HSA limits have been released.

2017 Maximum HSA Contribution:
Individual: $3400 (+$50 from 2016)
Family: $6750 (unchanged)
55+ Catch-up: $1000
Spouse 55+ Catch-up (in separate HSA account): $1000

2017 HDHP Minimum Deductible:
Individual: $1300 (unchanged)
Family: $2600 (unchanged)

2017 HSA eligible HDHP Max OOP:
Individual: $6550 (unchanged)
Family: $13100 (unchanged)

Silver Plan cost sharing reductions can bring the plan below the minimum required deductible for HSA eligibility.

Note: The $6750 HSA contribution limit applies to Family HDHP plans. However, if the husband has a self-only HDHP, he may contribute the $3400 individual HSA limit to his HSA. If the wife has a self-only HDHP, she may contribute $3400 to her HSA account for a total of $6800.

Am I correct that once one goes on Medicare you can no longer contribute to an HSA? If so, what happens if you go on Medicare mid-year?

Living well is the best revenge!

You can contribute a proportional amount to your HSA account. For example, if you go on Medicare six months into the calendar year, you can contribute 50% of the HSA max for the year.
Numbers is hard.

Retired in 2005 at age 58, no pension

Yes, you are correct. You need to prorate for the months that Medicare is not effective.

I am in that situation and was waiting for the 2017 HSA amounts to figure out my prorated amount.
