Who can contribute to my HSA?
Anyone can make an after-tax contribution to your Fidelity HSA. Generally, contributions another person makes to your HSA will not be tax-deductible for the contributor, and the IRS's annual contribution limits will still apply. See IRS Publication 969 for more on annual HSA contribution limits.
Can my employer contribute to my HSA that is not offered through them?
Check with your employer about their HSA contribution policies and capabilities. You can also make after-tax contributions from your paycheck—those contributions are federal income tax-deductible.
My spouse is 55 years or older. How can we take full advantage of HSA catch-up contributions?
Only the HSA owner can make a catch-up contribution, so if your spouse is eligible to make a catch-up contribution and you’re not, your spouse will need to open their own HSA to make a catch-up contribution. If both you and your spouse are 55 years or older during the tax-year, you can both make a catch-up contribution to the HSAs you each own.
What happens if I contribute more than the IRS's annual limits to my HSA?
If you contributed above the IRS's annual limits unintendedly, submit a completed Fidelity HSA Return of Excess ContributionLog In Required form to Fidelity in accordance with applicable instructions. If you take no action until you file taxes, you’ll be responsible for paying taxes on and may be penalized for the amount you contributed above the IRS’s annual contribution limits.
Where can I find my Fidelity HSA account number to make contributions to my Fidelity HSA?
Your account number can be found on your Account Summary page when you log into Fidelity.com. The Fidelity routing number is 101205681. These account and routing numbers can only be used for depositing money in your HSA, not for spending your HSA money. For further information and instructions, see our resource on determining your routing and account numbersLog In Required.
How can I make a one-time IRA contribution to my HSA?
You can make a once-in-a-lifetime4 contribution to your HSA from your IRA. This is sometimes called a "qualified HSA funding distribution from an IRA or a rollover from an IRA." These contributions are not subject to federal income taxes or the 10% penalty for early withdrawals. If you choose to do a one-time IRA contribution, you can effectively use your IRA money to pay for medical expenses, such as a major unexpected expense, without having to pay federal income taxes or penalties on it, as you would if you took an early IRA distribution to pay for that expense. However, contributions from an IRA will count toward the IRS's annual limits on HSA contributions—unlike a rollover between two HSAs—and those IRA contributions are not tax deductible.
- Fidelity IRA to Fidelity HSA transfers: Contact a Fidelity HSA representative to initiate a transfer of your Fidelity IRA to your Fidelity HSA.
- External (non-Fidelity) IRA to Fidelity HSA transfers: Request a one-time distribution from your non-Fidelity IRA and have your IRA custodian send a check made payable to Fidelity Management Trust Company (or FMTC), FBO [your name]. Also include a deposit slip or letter of instruction with the check. Include the account number and the contribution tax year in the check memo field when you mail the check to Fidelity. Learn how to deposit a check by mail. If your IRA custodian needs other instructions, please call 866-402-7610 to speak to a Fidelity HSA representative.
