How Much Should I Contribute to My HSA?
1. How flexible are you with your paycheck? How much extra money do you have for savings or disposable income?
b. I want to build my savings but right now it’s like the Great Wall of China, fifty bucks a paycheck might get me there in about 1,000 years.
c. I’m pretty flexible. A few hundred dollars a paycheck usually supports my local bar and I can still save some money.
d. I’m fortunate enough to spend money how I see fit. I wouldn’t sweat a few grand into something new.
e. I’m a CEO with nothing to-do but read online blogs.
2. How much in eligible medical expenses are you expecting this year?
b. Less than $1,000, Costco prescriptions = affordable.
c. $1,000 – $2,000, if that’s all it takes to be healthy it’s worth it.
d. $2,000 – $4,000, life’s short and expensive.
e. $4,000 – $6,000, might be skipping our European tour this year.
f. $6,000+, that whole ‘apple a day’ thing didn’t really work out.
g. I have no idea (budgeting? What’s that?).
3. What are your financial priorities?
b. My financial planning is done one year at a time.
c. I have a retirement goal that I’m on track to achieve.
d. I’m hoping to kick my feet up and drink a Mai Tai as soon as possible, that’s why I’m putting 50% of my pay in my 401(k).
