HSA Family Contribution Limit Decreased

In an unusual turn of events, the IRS announced yesterday that the family contribution limit for HSAs has decreased to $6,850 from the previous amount of $6,900. This does not impact the individual contribution limit, which remains at $3,450, or catch-up contribution limit of $1,000 for eligible participants age 55+.

This change is a result of the tax reform law (PL 115-97) changing the annual inflation adjustment factor from the Consumer Price Index (CPI) to a new factor: Chained CPI.  

The family contribution decrease is effective for the calendar year 2018.
