SEP IRA Contribution Limits

SEP IRA Contribution Limits

The following information is directly from and links to the IRS website


Contributions an employer can make to an employee’s SEP-IRA cannot exceed the lesser of:

  1. 25% of the employee’s compensation, or
  2. $55,000 for 2018 ($54,000 for 2017)

Note: Elective salary deferrals and catch-up contributions are not permitted in SEP plans.

If you’ve contributed more than the annual limits to an employee’s SEP-IRA, find out how to correct this mistake.
