The IRS adjusted this amount due to the passing of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and its application of the chained consumer price index for employee benefit contribution limits.
The HSA contribution limit for individuals with a self-only high-deductible health plan remains at $3,450 for 2018.
If you're an employer, notify your employees of this change. If any employees reduced their contribution limits as a result of the limit reduction in March, notify them of this change and adjust their contribution elections, if necessary. You should also update the maximum family limit in your benefits administration system and recalculate payroll deduction amounts for those who need to update their contribution for 2018.
