Hmmm... maybe I had it backwards.
Can I transfer funds from a NON-Roth, regular IRA to an HSA?
I thought there was a one-time option to do this for $5,000.
Hi again Jeff
First, let me apologize for the delay in answering your follow up question. Normally these hit our que, and will prevent us from answering any other questions until we take care of someone who has a follow up question (and I totally agree with that process)
For some unknown reason, that didn't happen this time.
You are correct that you may make a one time option to transfer funds from a Traditional IRA to your HSA, however, the $amount is limited to the maximum HSA contribution for the year minus any contributions you've already made for the year.
For 2015 the HSA contribution limit is $3350 for single coverage and $6650 for family coverage. Please see below:
I hope this helps.
tI see that you read my answer, but didn't rate it. Do you have any questions or concerns that I can help you with?
