Frequently Asked Question

What is the maximum amount of money I can contribute to my 401k annually? Does the amount increase each year?

Answer: Elective deferral limits for 2015 is $18,000. But this can be reduced based upon plan restrictions and government regulations. In addition, there are special non-discrimination rules to prevent highly compensated employees (HCE) from being able to save substantially more than lower paid employees.
