How much can I contribute into a Defined Benefit Plan?

Using the retirement calculator below you can calculate the maximum annual retirement contribution limit based on your income. Enter your name, age and income and then click "Calculate."

The result will show a comparison of how much could be contributed into a Defined Benefit Plan, Individual 401k, SEP IRA or SIMPLE IRA based on your income and age. If you are taxed as a sole proprietorship use your NET income when using the calculator. If you are incorporated, then only use your W-2 wages when using the calculator. For example with an S corporation K-1 distributions (corporate profits) are not included in the calculation only W-2 wages.

Note: The calculations are based on a traditional defined benefit plan. The calculator is for illustrative purposes and is an estimate. A 401k and a profit sharing plan can potentially be added to a defined benefit plan. A fully insured defined benefit plan may allow a larger contribution than a traditional defined benefit plan. A cash balance plan may be a better option for corporations with employees. Contact us and we can send you a proposal with specific calculations based on the demographics of your business. Here are case studies providing real examples.
