Family HSA Contribution - Two HSA Accounts

The spouse decides they would like to take advantage of his/her employer’s HSA contributions and opens an HSA of their own. For tax year 2020, the total HSA contributions for both spouses cannot exceed $7,100.
Family HSA Contribution - One HSA Account
One taxpayer elects not to open an HSA account. Other taxpayer will contribute the entire amount into the HSA account.
