    Contribution Limits

    To begin or change your contributions to your 457 plan, you should contact your employer. Most 457 plans allow you to increase, decrease, stop and restart contributions as often as you wish, without fees or penalties. You may defer each year a maximum of 100% of your gross compensation* or an annual dollar limit, whichever is less. Please visit www.icmarc.org/contributionlimits to view current year contribution limits.

    Contribution limits increase in $500 increments to correspond with inflation rate increases (the limits will not necessarily increase every year).

    * Your gross compensation must first be reduced by any mandatory pre-tax ("picked-up") employee 401 plan contributions.

    Catch-Up Provisions

    The 457 plan offers two "Catch-Up" provisions which allow you to contribute over-and-above the normal annual contribution amount.

    The normal (or "pre-retirement") catch-up provision allows you to make additional contributions to make up for years in which you did not contribute the maximum that you were eligible to contribute under your current employer's 457 plan.

    The "Age 50" catch-up provision allows you to contribute an additional annual amount when you reach age 50 or older.

    "Pre-Retirement" Catch-Up

    Please visit www.icmarc.org/contributionlimits to view current year pre-retirement catch-up contribution limits. Contribution limits increase in $500 increments to correspond with inflation rate increases (the limits will not necessarily increase every year)

    Contribution limits increase in $500 increments to correspond with inflation rate increases (the limits will not necessarily increase every year).

    "Age 50" Catch-Up

    Please visit www.icmarc.org/contributionlimits to view current year age 50 catch-up contribution limits. Contribution limits increase in $500 increments to correspond with inflation rate increases (the limits will not necessarily increase every year)

    Contribution limits increase in $500. increments to correspond with inflation rate increases (the limits will not necessarily increase every year).
