Planning For 2024: Retirement Plans & HSA Contribution Limits

It's always a good time to plan for your financial future. As the upcoming new year approaches, it provides a good reason to consider the new contribution limits for retirement plans and health savings accounts (HSAs) in 2024.

Retirement Plan Contributions 

The IRS recently announced that beginning in 2024, taxpayers will be allowed to contribute an additional $500 into their 401(k), 403(b) and most 457 plans. The 2024 contribution limit for these retirement plans will increase from the current level of $22,500 to $23,000.

Individuals age 50 and above are also eligible for catch-up contributions to their 401(k), 403(b) and most 457 plans. This means that these individuals can contribute above the $23,000 limit. The 2024 catch-up contribution limit will remain $7,500. In total, employees age 50 and above can contribute up to $30,500 in these retirement plans!

The limits for IRA/Roth-IRA contributions in 2024 will increase by $500 from $6,500 to $7,000. The IRA /Roth IRA catch-up contributions for individuals age 50 and above will remain $1,000. In total, employees age 50 and above can contribute up to $8,000 in their IRAs/Roth-IRAs.

Additionally, recent legislation has also made changes to HSAs contribution limits in 2024. Below are several of the important highlights to note.

Higher Health Savings Account (HSA) Limits In 2024


  • In 2024, the maximum annual contribution amount is $4,150 for an individual (up from $3,850 in 2023).
  • The catch-up contribution amount for those age 55 or older is $1,000 per year.


  • For families, the maximum annual contribution amount is $8,300 per year in 2024 (up from $7,750 in 2023).
  • For a family in the 35% marginal tax bracket, a maximum contribution can result in a federal income tax saving of nearly $3,000 plus any state income tax and other benefits.

Almost anyone enrolled in a high deductible health plan that is HSA-qualified can set-up an HSA and benefit from the tax advantage. HSAs are an increasingly popular tax-favored benefit for workers and their families.
