An individual employee may contribute $3,600 compared with $3,550 for the current year, the IRS announced May 20. An employee with a family may contribute $7,200 in 2021, compared with $7,100 this year.
An employee age 55 or older may make an extra $1,000 "catch-up" contribution in 2021, the same as this year.
HSAs are available only to employees in high-deductible health-care plans.
