| Retirement Planning Key Numbers
An increasing number of retirement plan and IRA limits are indexed for inflation each year, and many of the limits eligible for a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) adjusted upward for 2012. Some of the key numbers for 2012 are listed below, with the corresponding limit for 2011. (The source for these 2012 numbers is IRS Information Release IR-2011-103.)
1 Must aggregate employee deferrals to all 401(k), 403(b), SAR-SEP, and SIMPLE plans of all employers; 457(b) contributions are not aggregated. For SAR-SEPs, the percentage limit is 25% of compensation reduced by elective deferrals (effectively a 20% maximum contribution).
2 Special catch-up limits may also apply to 403(b) and 457(b) plan participants.
