2014 Contribution Limits for 403(b) Plan (December 2013)

The Internal Revenue Service recently announced the annual 403(b) limits for 2014. They are as follows:

•     Pre-tax Elective Deferral      $ 17,500 (same as 2013)
•     Age 50 & Over Catch-up      $ 5,500 (same as 2013)
•     Overall by Employer/Employee      $ 52,000 (was $51,000 in 2013)
•     Annual Compensation      $ 260,000 (was $255,000 in 2013)

If you are currently contributing to the 403(b) retirement plan, your contribution will automatically continue in 2014 without the need for a new 403(b) Contribution Agreement (with the exception of participating Temporary, Limited and Casual employees who must submit a new agreement annually). Remember, if you choose to contribute the maximum amount and you will be turning 50 during 2014, your contribution will automatically include the additional $5,500 catch-up. The university will no longer offer the 15-year catch-up contribution effective January 1, 2014. If you are directly impacted, you will receive a separate notification regarding this decision.
