The basic salary deferral amount for 401(k) and similar workplace plans remains the same in 2021 at $19,500. The catch-up amount for those 50 and older remains at $6,500. While these limits remain unchanged, the overall limit for these plans goes up from $57,000 to $58,000 in 2021. That helps workers whose employers allow special after-tax salary deferrals, as well as self-employed individuals who can save to the limit in individual 401(k)s or SEP retirement plans.
For everyone else, the IRA contribution limits are flat, remaining the same for 2021 at $6,000, with a $1,000 catch-up limit if you are 50 or older.
