make rollover contributions, he or she is eligible to contribute to this HSA; specifically, that he or she: (1) is covered under a high deductible health plan
(HDHP); (2) is not also covered by any other health plan that is not an HDHP (with certain exceptions for plans providing preventive care and limited
types of permitted insurance and permitted coverage); (3) is not enrolled in Medicare; and (4) cannot be claimed as a dependent on another person’s
tax return.

Contributions for any tax year may be made at any time before the deadline for filing the account owner’s federal income tax return for that year

dependents are tax-free. However, distributions that are not used for qualified medical expenses are included in the account owner’s gross
income and are subject to an additional 20 percent tax on that amount. The additional 20 percent tax does not apply if the distribution is made
after the account owner’s death, disability, or reaching age 65.
3. The custodian is not required to determine whether the distribution is for the payment or reimbursement of qualified medical expenses. Only the
account owner is responsible for substantiating that the distribution is for qualified medical expenses and must maintain records sufficient to
show, if required, that the distribution is tax-free.

Purpose of Form
Form 5305-C is a model custodial account
agreement that has been approved by the
IRS. An HSA is established after the form is
fully executed by both the account owner and
the custodian. The form can be completed at
any time during the tax year. This account
must be created in the United States for the
exclusive benefit of the account owner.
Do not file Form 5305-C with the IRS.
Instead, keep it with your records. For more
information on HSAs, see Notice 2004-2,
2004-2 I.R.B. 269, Notice 2004-50, 2004-33
I.R.B. 196, Pub. 969, Health Savings
Accounts and Other Tax-Favored Health
Plans, and other IRS published guidance.
Definitions
Identifying Number. The account owner’s
social security number will serve as the
identification number of this HSA. For married
persons, each spouse who is eligible to open
an HSA and wants to contribute to an HSA
must establish his or her own account. An
employer identification number (EIN) is
required for an HSA for which a return is filed
to report unrelated business taxable income.
An EIN is also required for a common fund
created for HSAs.
High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). For
calendar year 2011, an HDHP for self-only
coverage has a minimum annual deductible of
$1,200 and an annual out-of-pocket
maximum (deductibles, co-payments and
other amounts, but not premiums) of $5,950.
In 2012, the $1,200 minimum annual
deductible remains the same and the annual
out-of-pocket maximum increases to $6,050.
For calendar year 2011, an HDHP for family
coverage has a minimum annual deductible of
$2,400 and an annual out-of-pocket
maximum of $11,900. In 2012, the $2,400
minimum annual deductible remains the same
and the annual out-of-pocket maximum
increases to $12,100. These limits are subject
to cost-of-living adjustments after 2012.
Self-only coverage and family coverage
under an HDHP. Family coverage means
coverage that is not self-only coverage.
Qualified medical expenses. Qualified
medical expenses are amounts paid for
medical care as defined in section 213(d) for
the account owner, his or her spouse, or
dependents (as defined in section 152) but
only to the extent that such amounts are not
compensated for by insurance or otherwise.
With certain exceptions, health insurance
premiums are not qualified medical expenses.
Custodian. A custodian of an HSA must be a
bank, an insurance company, a person
previously approved by the IRS to be a
custodian of an individual retirement account
(IRA) or Archer MSA, or any other person
approved by the IRS.
Specific Instructions
