  • 265K compensation limit on 403b/401k?

    I can't seem to find the answer...someone brought up that if you make over 265K (I think base salary), then you are limited in what can be contributed to 403b/401k. Seems to affected employer match/contributions? Does it affect my contributions? Very confused and did more than a simple google search and couldn't figure it out. Thanks in advance.

    I believe $265,000 is the maximum amount an employer can use when calculating matching contributions.  This is determined by the IRS, and I believe may be going up to $270,000 next year.

    There are others on this forum far more knowledgeable than I am on this topic.

      That's right.

      And it is going up to $270k for 2017.  Good research!
