For 2019, 401(k) Contribution Limit for Employees Rises to $19,000
'Catch-up' contribution for those 50 and older stays at $6,000, while contribution limit from all sources hits $56,000


By Stephen Miller, November 1, 2018

Employee 401(k) contributions for 2019 will top off at $19,000—a $500 increase from 2018—while the "all sources" maximum contribution (employer and employee combined) rises to $56,000, up $1,000, the IRS announced Nov. 1.

Plan participants who contribute to the limit next year will be able to receive up to $37,000 from match and profit-sharing contributions ($56,000 minus $19,000).

For participants ages 50 and over, the additional "catch-up" contribution limit, which is set by law, will stay at $6,000.

"Retirement plan contribution limits are adjusted for inflation each year," said Harry Sit, CEBS, who edits The Finance Buff blog. "Inflation has come up a bit lately."

HR and payroll managers should plan to adjust their systems for the new year and to inform employees about the new limits in year-end open enrollment materials. Because the IRS announced the 2019 contribution changes so close to the beginning of the fall open enrollment period, many plan sponsors may need to provide addendums to benefits materials that have already been printed.
