2018 Retirement Savings Account Annual Contribution Limits 457 & Roth/Traditional IRA

The annual contribution limits for the 457 Deferred Compensation Plan increased by $500, while the Roth and Traditional IRA limits remain unchanged from those in 2017.

The annual contribution limit for the 457 Deferred Compensation Plan remains $18,500 ($24,500 if age 50 or over; or $37,000 if qualified for the pre-retirement catch-up). Your contributions are made on a pre-tax basis which reduces your taxable income at the end of the year.

Contributions to the Roth IRA or the Traditional IRA are made on an after-tax basis. The annual contribution limit remains $5,500 ($6,500 if age 50 or over).


As we usher in a new year, take time to review your retirement savings accounts to determine if you are on track for a comfortable retirement. You can make changes to your contributions at any time during the year. If you have questions concerning your accounts, contact ICMA-RC at 800-669-7400.

If you have any questions, please contact a representative of the Health & Benefits Office at 301-454-1694.
