Annual Compensation and Contribution Limits for Qualified Retirement Plans

The tax law places limits on the dollar amount of contributions to retirement plans and IRAs and the amount of benefits under a pension plan. The Internal Revenue Code (IRC) requires the limits to be adjusted annually for cost-of-living increases. BCG is pleased to present this table for your convenience.
