2018 Updated Contribution Limits
We often find ourselves being asked… What is the max amount that I can contribute this year to my retirement plan? For that reason we wanted a handy place to turn, and thought you might want to glance at the brackets prior to yearend.
2018 maximum contributions to 401K and 403B retirement plans
The limit has increased from $18,000 to $18,500. If you are over 50 you may add $6,000 for catch- up funding.
2018 IRA (Individual Retirement Arrangements) max contribution limits
The maximum amount of contribution to a traditional IRA is unchanged at $5,500. The catch- up limit for those over 50 is $1,000. There are phase- outs regarding IRA contributions see next section.
2018 IRA phase out information
If either the tax payer or their spouse was covered by a retirement plan at their work, the deduction for a traditional IRA maybe phased out or eliminated.
