    Hello, TaxInformation!

    That is a great question! You don't need to have earned income to contribute to an HSA. However, you should make sure you have taxable income before the HSA contribution as the benefit of HSA contributions is the tax deduction.

    To determine the amount of contributions you can make for 2023, you can use the worksheet and limitation chart on page 6 of the link below:
