New Retirement Contribution Limits for 2023

The Internal Revenue Service has released new limits for the coming year for retirement accounts. Due to high inflation we are seeing some of the highest increases ever to allow you to contribute to your 401(k), IRA, Roth IRA and other retirement accounts. 

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)

IRA contribution limits are up $500 in 2023 to $6,500. Catch-up contributions for those over age 50 remain at $1,000, bringing the total limit to $7,500.

Roth IRAs

The income phase-out range for Roth IRA contributions increases to $138,000-$153,000 for single filers and heads of household, a $9,000 increase. For married couples filing jointly, phase-out will be $218,000 to $228,000, a $14,000 increase. Married individuals filing separately see their phase-out range remain at $0-10,000. The contribution limits are up $500 in 2023 to $6,500. Catch-up contributions for those over age 50 remain at $1,000, bringing the total limit to $7,500.

Workplace Retirement Accounts

Those with 401(k), 403(b), 457 plans, and similar accounts will see a $2,000 increase for 2023, the limit rising to $22,500. Those aged 50 and older will now have the ability to contribute an extra $7,500, bringing their total limit to $30,000.

SIMPLE Accounts 

A $1,500 increase in limits for 2023 gives individuals contributing to this incentive match plan a $15,500 limit. Those over age 50 get a $3,500 catch-up to allow them to contribute $19,000.

Other Changes 

In addition to changes in contributions limits, the IRS also announced several other changes for 2023, including an increase to the annual exclusion for gifts to $17,000 per person and an increase to the estate tax exclusion threshold.
