The IRS has announced the 2022 contribution limits for retirement and health savings accounts. This includes contribution limits for 401(k) and 403(b) plans, income limits for IRA contribution deductibility, and the salary threshold to classify “key” and “highly compensated employees”

While contribution limits for individual retirement accounts (IRAs) won’t increase from 2021 to 2022, there is good news for retirement savers who participate in a workplace employment plan like a 401(k).

Let’s take a look at the updated limits below:

2022 401(k) and 403(b) individual contribution limits (IRS 402(g) Limit)

Age 49 and under


Age 50 and older

Additional $6,500

The IRS has also set limits for the total amount that may be contributed to your retirement savings 401(k) account from all sources combined (IRS section 415 limit). This includes any employer matching or profit-sharing contributions, and any employee after-tax contributions. For 2022, this limit has increased from $58,000 to a new maximum of $61,000.

Every plan is different, so it’s important to refer to your Plan Document for any compensation or other applicable limits.
