2011 IRS Pension Limits and Social Security Wage Base

The IRS just published the retirement plan limits for 2011.  Most of the limits for retirement plans are unchanged – again.  They’re the same as 2009 and 2010:

Maximum annual pension plan benefit


Maximum annual addition for defined contribution plans


Maximum 401(k) elective deferral


Maximum catchup contribution (age 50 and over)


Highly compensated employee (HCE) threshold


Maximum annual recognized compensation


The Social Security wage base will also stay the same as 2009 and 2010, at $106,800.
