The maximum amount workers can contribute to a 401(k) for 2018 is $18,500 if they’re younger than age 50. That’s a $500 increase from 2017, when the contribution limit was $18,000.What is the maximum allowable contribution for 401k?
Great question and I updated the post with the information. Your employer’s 401K maximum contribution limit is is $49,000 or 100% of your salary, whichever is the smaller amount. Though most employers rarely give anywhere near the maximum, with most employers matching 3% to 6% of employee contributions.What is the maximum age to contribute to 401k?
Most companies require those who contribute to 401K plans to be at least 21 years of age and to have been with the company at least one year. Beginning to save for the future at such a young age can to lead to a very prosperous retirement.
