How do I put money in my HSA?


If your HSA is offered as part of your benefits package through your employer, typically, your employer will allow for pre-tax payroll deductions to contribute to your HSA. If this is the case, you can sign up and make your election during your employer's open enrollment period. After you elect, deductions will be taken automatically pre-tax from your pay. If your employer doesn't allow for pre-tax payroll deductions or if you are enrolled in a privately held HSA, you may contribute to your HSA by writing a check or by electronically transferring money. Since money contributed is pre-tax, you may then deduct your contribution on your income tax return using IRS Form 1040 and Form 8889.
