Yes, you can contribute to both a 401k plan and an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) in 2024. However, the contribution limits for each account are separate. IRAs are subject to income limitations. If your income exceeds the income limitations, contact one of our advisors to learn how you can still contribute to a Roth IRA.

For an IRA, the maximum contribution limit for individuals under the age of 50 is $7,000, with an additional catch-up contribution of $1,000 for individuals who are 50 years or older.

Can my employer contribute to my 401k plan in addition to my own contributions?

Yes, your employer can contribute to your 401k plan in addition to your own contributions. Employer contributions can come in the form of non-elective, matching or profit-sharing contributions. It’s important to check with your employer or plan administrator to understand the specific rules and limits for employer contributions.
