TSP contribution limit increases in 2013

Federal employees can contribute a maximum of $17,500 annually to their Thrift Savings Plan next year — up from the $17,000 limit this year, according to the IRS.

The increase is due to a cost-of-living adjustment, which is 1.7 percent next year.

The catch-up contribution limit for employees 50 and over will remain $5,500.

This year feds could contribute post-tax dollars to a Roth-style TSP. The combined contributions to both the traditional and Roth TSP cannot exceed the $17,500 limit next year.
