2012 401k Contribution Limit

The 401k employee contribution limit has finally had its first increase in 4 years in 2012. I historically max out my 401(k) contributions so I'll need to tweak my contribution levels to ensure I hit the max by the end of 2012.

401(k) Contribution Limit Catch-Up Contribution Limit
2012 $17,000 $5,500
2011 $16,500 $5,500
2010 $16,500 $5,500
2009 $16,500 $5,500
