Maximum Contribution Amount (415 Limit)

Federal law limits the total amount of contributions that may be contributed to certain Vincennes University retirement plans on behalf of an employee for any calendar year. The total amount contributed cannot exceed the lesser of 100 percent of the employee's compensation for the year or the "applicable dollar amount."

The maximum contribution amount limits the total amount of employer contributions and salary deferrals that can be made on behalf of an employee.
