How much can I contribute into my 401(K)?

What is the maximum amount that I can contribute to my 401(k) plan?

The maximum amount an employee can contribute to a 401(k) plan is determined annually. You may be allowed catch up contributions in addition to annual limit, if you are age 50 or older. Refer to “Elective Deferrals” in Publication 525,taxable and Nontaxable Income. The maximum amount applies to an employee’s aggregate pre-tax contributions to a 401(k) plan and 403(b) plan. There are several different limits that apply to a 401(k) plan in addition to the overall contribution limit. These limits, your salary, and the type of 401(k) plan to which you are contributing may limit your 401(k) contributions to a lesser amount.

The rules for retirement plans are complex. Your plan administrator should have written information about your particular plan that explains these limitations as well as other regulations that apply.

Why Wedding Insurance?

Ever had a sleepless night, worrying about what could go wrong?
Unfortunately, some of what you’ve imagined can happen. A bride’s most common “nightmare” is usually dress-related…it’s damaged or defective, or the bridal salon goes out of business. Severe weather can wash out your big day. These are just some of the risks for one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make (the average U.S. wedding is $26,000). You’d protect your car, why not your wedding?

These are some of the things that are covered under Travelers’ Wedding Insurance Policy:
Lost Deposits
We can reimburse your deposit if a vendor goes out of business, declares bankruptcy before your wedding, or simply fails to show up.
Severe Weather
If severe weather (such as a hurricane) forces you to postpone your wedding, we can provide reimbursement for non-recoverable expenses.
Ruined Photos
If your photographer’s film is defective, or negatives are lost or damaged, we can help reconvene your wedding party to take new photos or video.
Sudden Illness
If the wedding needs to be postponed because sudden illness prevents the bride, groom or their parents from attending, you can receive reimbursement for non-recoverable expenses.
Venue Requires Insurance
As an additional option to your policy, you can add liability coverage to protect yourself in case a guest is injured or causes damage to property.

As long as your wedding day is more than 14 days away, there’s still time to insure the day of your dreams.  Please contact our office if you would like to inquire about obtaining this coverage.
