Increases to Retirement Contributions

The maximum amounts you may contribute to a retirement plan are going up for 2019.

If you are an employee that participates in a 401(k), 403(b) or most 457 plans, you may now contribute up to $19,000 in 2019, up from $18,500 in 2018.

Contributions to an Individual Retirement Plan (IRA), either Traditional or Roth, can be up to $6,000 in 2019. Those age 50 and over can contribute an additional $1,000 as a catch-up contribution.

Income limits for determining eligibility to make deductible contributions to Traditional IRAs, to contribute to Roth IRAs and to claim the saver’s credit are also increasing for 2019. Click here to read more about these changes.
