The IRS has announced changes to retirement plan limits for 2022
Each year the Internal Revenue Service announces the cost-of-living adjustments applicable for all types of qualified retirement plans and IRAs. The various annual contribution limitations and other important indexes which govern all plans either remain unchanged year-over-year or may rise depending on whether the Consumer Price Index meets a threshold level dictating an increase.
For 2022, highlights include:
- The contribution limit for employees who participate in 401(k), 403(b), most 457 plans, and the federal government’s Thrift Savings Plan is increased to $20,500
- Limits on contributions to traditional and Roth IRAs remains unchanged at $6,000
- The Total Annual Contribution Limit (EE+ER) for defined contribution plans increases from $57,000 to $61,000.
- The Annual Compensation Limit increases from $285,000 to $305,000.
