Yes, the main requirement to be eligible for an HSA is to have a qualified High Deductible Health Plan in place as your insurance. There are no requirements that you be employed. Please see IRS Pub 969 for details on HSAs.


Thank you for the prompt and informative response. It was very useful.
It looks like any money can be put in the HSA, not just earned income.

(Sorry for the delay in thanking you and the other responder. We had a family emergency.)
