2019 Maximum Allowable Contributions Limits for 403(b) and 457 plans

The IRS has recently announced the 2019 Maximum Allowable Contribution (MAC) limits for 403(b) and 457 plans. Elective contribution limits have increased from their 2018 levels.

The elective deferral limit for 403(b)/457 plans will now stand at $19,000. Employees age 50 and over will be entitled to contribute an additional $6,000 to their 403(b) or 457 plan(s) thereby increasing the elective deferral limit to $25,000. Individuals with at least 15 years of service with their current employer may be entitled to contribute up to an additional $3,000 above their age-based limit, potentially increasing the limit to $28,000 for a participant utilizing both the age based and the full amount of the service based catch-up provisions.
