IRS Announces Increase in 401K Maximum Contributions for 2012

Posted by McDonald & Osborne Posted on Oct 09 2015

After four straight years of stagnant 401K contribution limits, the IRS officially announced an increase for 2012! G.E. Miller’s 20SomethingFinance article does a fantastic job in revealing:

  • A brief history of 401K contributions limits
  • Advice on how to calculate the percentage of your salary you need to have withheld to reach your max contribution.
  • And how supplement your 401K with retirement planning alternatives.

Will you be maxing out your contributions in 2011? What about for 2012, will you take advantage of the increase?
