Prior Year HSA Contributions Reminder

by | Jan 19, 2022

January marks the start of a new year and is a great time to remind your employees that they have until April 15th, 2022 to make contributions and max out their health savings accounts (HSAs) for 2021. 

Encouraging your employees to contribute to their HSAs will give them more money for future medical expenses, especially if they invest it in low-cost ETFs.  They also get a federal and state tax deduction when they file their 2021 taxes before April 15th.  However, if their contribution is made outside of payroll, they won’t be eligible for the 7.64% payroll/Medicare deduction. Even so, it’s still an incredibly powerful investment for today and for retirement. 

It’s important to note that the HSAs need to be established in 2021 to be eligible to make the contributions for 2021.

    HSAs Help Women Make Progress Towards Financial Security

    Women face more challenges when it comes to savings and retirement. It is primarily because women encounter a wage gap that follows them into their retirement years. Women only have 70% of the overall income in retirement that men enjoy. Many in that age group have no retirement savings at all.  In light of these facts, women need to plan for their retirement and consider health savings accounts (HSA) as a tool to help them achieve their goals and set themselves up to be financially secure.
