HSAs are a fantastic way to save for medical expenses while receiving tremendous tax benefits. Lucky for you, Lockheed Martin employees have access to an HSA! With HSAs being so great, some people may wish to contribute as much and for as long as possible. As you approach age 65, it may be a good idea to begin thinking about how Medicare and HSAs interact with each other.

You cannot contribute to an HSA after age 65 if any of the following applies:

  • You are enrolled in Social Security
  • You are enrolled in Medicare
  • You are no longer in a high-deductible health plan

Please note that if you are receiving Social Security by the time you are 65, you will automatically be enrolled in Medicare and therefore ineligible for further HSA contributions! Just remember, 65 is an important age because that’s when Medicare enrollment begins for most individuals. To learn more about HSAs, please schedule an appointment with us today!
