401(k) Contribution Deduction Limits Might Just Save You Money

Contribution Guidelines Increase Savings for Taxpayers in 2024.

Posted By

Those who are participating in retirement plans will witness an increase in contribution limits from $22,500 to $23,000. These plans include: 401(k), 403(b), and a majority of the 457 plans, including Thrift Savings Plan. Additionally, the annual contribution limits for individual retirement accounts (IRAs) will rise from $6,500 to $7,000. 

With that said, the IRS has opted to maintain the IRA catch-up contribution limit for individuals aged 50 and over at $1,000. IRS confirms the catch-up contribution limit remains $7,500 for employees aged 50 and over for various plans in 2024. In addition, individuals aged 50+ enrolled in programs can potentially contribute up to $30,500 starting in 2024, per the IRS.

Contributions: Saver’s Credit

The IRS did not adjust the IRA catch-up contribution limit as per SECURE 2.0. Additionally, the Income ranges are what determines the contribution limits (Tractional & Roth IRAs) and eligibility to claim the Saver’s Credit. The deductibility of contributions to a traditional IRA is subject to specific conditions. Deduction reductions are based on the filing status and who has a workplace retirement plan. The changes in limits are as follows:
