Maximum contributions to health savings accounts will jump slightly next year, the Internal Revenue Service announced. It will increase $50 for individuals and $100 for families.

The agency said the maximum 2015 HSA contribution will be $3,350 for individuals with self-only coverage, up from $3,300 this year. For those with family coverage, the maximum contribution will be $6,650, up from $6,550.

HSA contribution limits are updated annually to reflect cost-of-living adjustments.

The annual limitation on deductions for an individual with family coverage under a high-deductible health plan will be $6,650 for 2015.

The maximum out-of-pocket employee expense will increase next year to $6,450 for single coverage from $6,350, and to $12,900, from $12,700, for family coverage.

The increases are detailed in Revenue Procedure 2014-30, and take effect in January.
