| December 18, 2023

The Internal Revenue Service has released new limits for the coming year. After months of high inflation and financial uncertainty, some of these cost-of-living-based adjustments have reached near-record levels.

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)
IRA contribution limits are up $500 in 2024 to $7,000. Catch-up contributions for those over age 50 remain at $1,000, bringing the total limit to $8,000.

Roth IRAs
The income phase-out range for Roth IRA contributions increases to $146,000-$161,000 for single filers and heads of household, an $8,000 increase. For married couples filing jointly, the phase-out will be $230,000 to $240,000, a $12,000 increase. Married individuals filing separately see their phase-out range remain at $0-10,000.

Workplace Retirement Accounts
Those with 401(k), 403(b), 457 plans, and similar accounts will see a $500 increase for 2024, the limit rising to $23,000. Those aged 50 and older can now contribute an extra $7,500, bringing their total limit to $30,500.

SIMPLE Accounts
A $500 increase in limits for 2024 gives individuals contributing to this incentive match plan a $16,000 stoplight.
