The above 401(k) limits can help determine if you are maximizing your retirement savings potential. This is because most companies have some sort of 401(k) match. Because of this, every employee’s priority should be to contribute up to the 2022 $20,500 limit through their salary deferrals as they receive free money from their employer for doing so. If you are over 50, you will want to take full advantage of the catch-up contributions as they are meant to help you ramp up your retirement savings as you get closer to your retirement date. The maximum IRS limit of $61,000 ($67,500 if over 50). This limit considers the funds the employee and employer put into a 401(k). Contributions up to this limit benefit the employee to store away even more for retirement even if they are not getting any company match on the funds. The contributions up to this IRS limit are also a very useful tool in that they can be eligible for Mega Backdoor Roth Conversions.
