NEW I.R.S. CONTRIBUTION LIMITS

The I.R.S. just increased the annual contribution limits on IRAs, 401(k)s, and other widely used
retirement plan accounts for 2020. Here’s a quick look at the changes.

-Next year, you can put up to $6,000 in any type of IRA. The limit is $7,000 if you will be 50 or older at
any time in 2020. 1,2

-Annual contribution limits for 401(k)s, 403(b)s, the federal Thrift Savings Plan, and most 457 plans also
get a $500 boost for 2020. The new annual limit on contributions is $19,500. If you are 50 or older at any
time in 2020, your yearly contribution limit for one of these accounts is $26,000. 1,2

-Are you self-employed, or do you own a small business? You may have a solo 401(k) or a SEP IRA,
which allows you to make both an employer and employee contribution. The ceiling on total solo 401(k)
and SEP IRA contributions rises $1,000 in 2020, reaching $57,000. 3

-If you have a SIMPLE retirement account, next year’s contribution limit is $13,500, up $500 from the
2019 level. If you are 50 or older in 2020, your annual SIMPLE plan contribution cap is $16,500. 3

-Yearly contribution limits have also been set a bit higher for Health Savings Accounts (which may be
used to save for retirement medical expenses). The 2020 limits: $3,550 for individuals with single
medical coverage and $7,100 for those covered under qualifying family plans. If you are 55 or older next
year, those respective limits are $1,000 higher.
