What’s in It for Me?

  • Cradlepoint contributes $ to your HSA! It’s FREE money! See the chart for contributions.
  • You can set aside pre-tax money from your paycheck to help pay for additional out-of-pocket health care expenses. HSAs give you triple tax advantages:
    1. Your contributions to the HSA are not taxed.*
    2. Payment of qualified expenses is tax-free.
    3. Earnings are tax-free.*
  • The HSA is an individual account you own! The entire balance is yours to keep. If you leave the company, the account goes with you.
  • You can make changes to your HSA contributions at any time. Unused funds always roll over to the next plan year.
  • Freedom to control and manage your healthcare spending and savings to grow your balance for future qualified medical expenses, such as those in retirement.

How Much Can I Contribute?

Contributions cannot exceed the annual IRS maximums. In 2022, the IRS maximum for individual coverage is $3,650 and for family coverage is $7,300. If you are age 55 or over, you may contribute an additional $1,000.
