The IRS has announced the annual 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.

Good news! Contribution limits for individual retirement accounts (IRAs) will increase from 2023 to 2024, and even more so for retirement savers who participate in a workplace employment plan like a 401(k).

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

2024 401(k) and 403(b) Contribution Limits  

Maximum employee elective contribution (age 49 and younger)

$23,000

Maximum employee elective contribution (age 50 and older)

Additional $7,500

Maximum employee elective deferral plus catch-up contribution (age 50 or older)

$30,500

Defined contribution maximum limit, employee + employer (age 49 or younger)

$69,000

Defined contribution maximum limit (age 50 or older), all sources + catch-up

$76,500

Highly compensated employees’ threshold for nondiscrimination testing

$155,000

Key employee officer compensation threshold

$220,000

Annual compensation limit for HCEs and key employees

$345,000

 

 

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 2024, this limit has increased from $66,000 to a new maximum of $69,000.  

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