IRS Increases IRA Contribution Limit for 2019

You’ll be able to contribute more to your IRA and Solo 401(k) in 2019.

The IRS announced on November 1st a cost-of-living adjustment to the annual contribution amount for IRAs. In 2019, people 50 and under will be able to contribute $6,000, up from $5,500.

The amount individuals over 50 can contribute remains at $1,000 above the normal rate, which is an increase to $7,000. According to IRS.gov, “The additional catch-up contribution limit for individuals aged 50 and over is not subject to an annual cost-of-living adjustment and remains $1,000.”

This is the first increase to the contribution limit since 2013.

There was also an increase for Solo 401(k)s and SEP IRAs.  Here’s a snapshot of the new contribution limits:
