$800 (if you contribute $400 or more) - Employee + Spouse
$800 (if you contribute $400 or more) - Employee + Child(ren)
$1,000 (if you contribute $500 or more) - Employee + Family
- You receive 50% of the Company funding in January. If you contribute equal to or greater than the 50% during 2022, the Company will match the additional 50%.

*New Hires, New HSA participants and Qualifying life event participants, please see section below regarding HSA Company contributions.
New hires may contribute to their HSA once they become benefit eligible. However, the employee will not receive any Company money during the first calendar year of participation. In 2023, the employee will then be eligible to receive the initial 2023 Company money and the 2023 employer match (as long as the employee is contributing at the appropriate level to the 2023 HSA plan).
- New Hire Example: John Doe is hired Jan. 28, 2022. He may start contributing to the HSA plan once he is benefit eligible; however, during the 2022 calendar year he will not receive any company seed or match. Starting with his first paycheck in 2023, he will receive the 2023 company seed. As long as the employee is contributing to HSA plan, he will receive a match per the terms of the 2023 HSA plan.
New HSA Participants and Qualifying Life Event Participants
New participants to the HSA in 2022 may contribute to their HSA. However, the employee will not receive any Company money during the first calendar year of participation. In 2023, the employee will then be eligible to receive the initial 2023 Company money and the 2023 employer match (as long as the employee is contributing at the appropriate level to the 2023 HSA plan).
Qualifying Life Events During the Year
If an HSA participant has a qualifying life event during the year and changes their HSA coverage (for example changes their HSA plan contribution from Employee Only to Employee + Spouse), they may continue to contribute and receive appropriate company match, however their initial employer seed money provided in January 2022 will not be modified.
