2023 IRS Retirement Savings Contribution Limits

The start of the New Year is a great time to focus on retirement savings contribution limits. Thanks to the power of compound interest. The more you save this year, the more financially secure you may be during retirement.

Are you ready to make more headway on your retirement savings in 2023? Make sure to note the new IRS 2023 limits for how much you can contribute.

401(k), 403(b), 457 plans, and the Thrift Savings Plan

The contribution limit for 2023 is $22,500, up $2000 from $20,500 in 2022. Individuals age 50 and older are eligible for catch-up contributions of $7500 for a total of $30,000.

Traditional or Roth IRA

For those who contribute to retirement savings accounts outside of their employer, annual contribution limits have increased for both traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs. In 2023, eligible individuals can contribute up to $6,500, up from $6,000, to their IRAs.

Eligibility for Traditional or Roth IRA contributions

The income ranges for determining eligibility to make deductible contributions to traditional Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), to contribute to Roth IRAs, and to claim the Saver’s Credit all increased for 2023.

Traditional IRA

Taxpayers can deduct contributions to a Traditional IRA if they meet certain conditions. If during the year either the taxpayer or the taxpayer’s spouse was covered by a retirement plan at work. The deduction may be reduced, or phased out, until it is eliminated, depending on filing status and income. (If neither the taxpayer nor the spouse is covered by a retirement plan at work, the phase-outs of the deduction do not apply.) Here are the phase-out ranges for 2023:

  • If you are a single taxpayer covered by a workplace retirement plan, the phase-out range is increased to between $73,000 and $83,000, up from between $68,000 and $78,000.
  • For married couples filing jointly, if the spouse making the IRA contribution is covered by a workplace retirement plan, the phase-out range is increased to between $116,000 and $136,000, up from between $109,000 and $129,000.
  • If you are an IRA contributor who is not covered by a workplace retirement plan and is married to someone who is covered, the phase-out range is increased to between $218,000 and $228,000, up from between $204,000 and $214,000.
  • And lastly, for a married individual filing a separate return who is covered by a workplace retirement plan, the phase-out range is not subject to an annual cost-of-living adjustment and remains between $0 and $10,000.

Roth IRA

The income phase-out range for taxpayers making contributions to a Roth IRA is increased to between $138,000 and $153,000 for singles and heads of household, up from between $129,000 and $144,000. In addition, for married couples filing jointly, the income phase-out range is increased to between $218,000 and $228,000, up from between $204,000 and $214,000. The phase-out range for a married individual filing a separate return who makes contributions to a Roth IRA is not subject to an annual cost-of-living adjustment and remains between $0 and $10,000.

The income phase-out range for contributions to a Traditional or Roth IRA for single filers is $138,000 to $153,000. For married couples filing jointly, it’s $218,000 and $228,000.
