2016 Limits

Every year the IRS releases the 401K limits, outlining the maximum amount that we can invest in our 401K’s. The limit for 2016 has yet to be released, but that’s not going to stop us predicting what it will be!

Using the ‘Wisdom of the Crowd’ we are asking our readers to estimate the 401k limits for 2016. We believe that taking the collective opinion of a group, rather than one single expert will result in a more accurate estimate. If you would like to take part in this experiment, with a chance to win $25 if you are closest then press on the button above.

We do not have enough results yet to show you the crowd sourced 2016 401K limits, however you can see how close the results were from last year. Please check back soon because as soon as we have enough submissions, we will publish the results.
