On October 19, 2017, the Internal Revenue Service announced that the annual maximum contribution limit for retirement plans in tax year 2018 would increase from $18,000 to $18,500. Contribution limits are determined by either an increase or decrease in the cost-of-living index and directly affect the amounts a participant can contribute to the MO Deferred Comp Plan. This means MO Deferred Comp participants who wish to max out their retirement savings can contribute an additional $500 per year to their deferred comp account to combat the rising cost of living. The catch-up contribution limit, for those age 50 or older, will remain at $6,000 in 2018. Below are the contribution limits for the 2018 tax year.
|Maximum Annual Deferral – under age 50||$18,500|
|Age 50 and Over Catch-up Provision Limit||$6,000 ($24,500 total)|
|Pre-Retirement Catch-up Provision Limit||$18,500 ($37,000 total)|
