Employer established a HSA and made a one time contribution of $750 per employee and spouse or dependent for total of $1500. Can employer withdraw moneys from employee's HSA debit card account? Say if you drop a dependent can they take back $750. Thanks
According to this (page 3):
Excess and Erroneous Employer Contributions. Whether an employer can recoup excess contributions made to an HSA depends on the facts. If an employer makes contributions to an HSA on behalf of an individual who was never HSA-eligible, then, yes, the employer can correct the error and recoup any amounts contributed.
But as I had mentioned in my comments, you can only make changes in terms of add/dropping dependents under specific circumstances.
If you meet one of those criteria for dropping your dependent, then your employer probably won't deduct the $750 since it wasn't an error. It would be best to contact your HR department.
