Tax law places limits on the dollar amount of contributions to retirement plans and IRAs and the amount of benefits under a pension plan. IRC Section 415 requires the limits to be adjusted annually for cost-of-living increases.

The limit on contributions by employees who participate in 401(k), 403(b), and most 457 plans increased in 2022 to $20,500.

The catch-up contribution limit for employees age 50 and over who participate in these plans remains unchanged at $6,500.
