InvestED | What is SUPER CATCH-UP?

It is officially Summer!  Favorite summer past times of grilling burgers, hotdogs, swimming, boating, gardening, camping and just spending time outside is here.  A staple in many American refrigerators in the summertime, and throughout the year, is Ketchup.  Ketchup has a way of giving those grilling favorites that much needed edge to just simply make it better.  Just like ketchup gives our grilling favorites the edge needed, catch-up contributions in a 401k can serve the same purpose. 


If you or someone you love is still working and is or going to turn 50 this year, while the normal contribution limit to a 401k/403b plan is $23,000 for 2024, those 50 and older can make catch-up contributions of an additional $7,500, totaling $30,500.  The extra amount contributed can really give an investor’s portfolio the extra boost needed to stay on track or get back on track for retirement goals. 

On December 29, 2022, Congress passed the SECURE 2.0 Act, which stands for Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement.  Several of the provisions outlined in the act have delayed start dates.  Beginning in 2025, Section 109 of the SECURE 2.0 Act allows employees who are 60-63 years old to contribute at a “super” catch-up rate!  The super catch-up allows for investors to make an additional 50% increase to the $7,500, which would result in $11,250 in additional catch-up contributions in 2025.  This catch-up contribution is planned to index to inflation and could mean possibly more contributions in future years.
