Bigger and Better 401(k) and IRA Contribution Caps in 2023

Maybe inflation isn’t all bad.  Social Security checks are going up 8.7%, you can buy a 1-year CD earning 4.5% interest, and (for those who aren’t spending every last time on more expensive groceries) we are seeing a big jump in retirement contribution limits for 2023.  To summarize:


401(k), 403(b), 457 plans:  Under age 50 limit will be $22,500 and catch up contribution for those 50 and older is $7,500


Traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs:  $6,500 for those under age 50.  The catch up contribution for those 50 and over remains $1,000.


Roth IRA income limitations:  $138,000 – $153,000 for singles/head of household filers.  $218,000 – $228,000 for married filing jointly.


SIMPLE IRAs:  Employee contributions are raised to $15,500 in 2023.


Be sure to adjust your percentages accordingly for January 1st payrolls if your intention is to capture the full amount of savings allowed.
