All types of IRAs and employer-sponsored retirement plans are subject to annual contribution limits set by the federal government. The limits are generally adjusted periodically to compensate for inflation and the increase in the cost of living.
For the 2011 tax year, you can contribute up to $5,000 to all IRAs combined, the limit will be adjusted for inflation annually. For instance, if you have a traditional IRA as well as a Roth IRA, you can only contribute a total of the annual limit in one year, not the annual limit to each.
If you are age 50 or older, you can also make an annual $1,000 “catch-up” contribution.
Employer-Sponsored Retirement Plans
Employer-sponsored retirement plans, such as 401(k)s and 403(b)s, have a 2011 contribution limit of $16,500; individuals aged 50 and older can contribute an extra $5,500 as a catch-up contribution.
