Changes to Retirement Limits

Are There Any Changes to IRA and Retirement Plan Limits for 2020?

Many IRA and retirement plan limits are indexed for inflation each year. On November 6, 2019 the IRS (Notice 2019-59) announced the inflation-adjusted numbers for 2020. The maximum IRA contribution for 2020 is $6,000, unchanged from 2019 (the catch-up limit for those 50 and older also remains unchanged at $1,000). However, certain phaseout ranges for determining the deductibility of traditional IRA contributions, and for determining whether and individual can contribute to a Roth IRA, have increased for 2020. For employer-sponsored retirement plans, the elective deferral limit for 401(k), 403(b), and 457(b) plans increases to $19,500 for 2020, and the catch-up limit increases to $6,500. The maximum amount that can be contributed to a defined contribution plan for 2020 increases to $57,000, and the maximum amount of compensation that can be taken into account in determining benefits for most plans for 2020 increases to $285,000.
