HSA balances carry over each year and remain with you regardless of your employment status or healthcare coverage in the future. Use your HSA for qualified medical expenses, at any age. This generally includes most medical, dental and vision care expenses. Some health insurance premiums may also be considered eligible expenses.
HSAs are not ONLY for medical expenses. If you don’t use your HSA funds for medical expenses, you can withdraw them after age 65 and use them for ANY purpose, subject to your tax rate at that time. Withdrawals for non-medical expenses prior to age 65 are subject to an additional 20% IRS penalty tax, except for death or disability.
Contribution limits are determined by the IRS and subject to change each year. Check with your health insurance provider and/or tax advisor for eligibility requirements and details.
