  • 401(k) Employee Contributions Above $2,400, A Possible Rothification Threshold

    As some tax reform proposals reportedly might modify the tax treatment of some 401(k) employee contributions to require them to be treated as so-called Roth contributions, EBRI has summarized its most recent information about the distribution of 401(k) employee contributions around a $2,400 threshold, broken out by salary and by age. We describe which 2015 401(k) contributors would be affected by a $2,400 Rothification proposal and what portion of their contributions would be above $2,400 (and thus subject to mandatory Rothification). We also provide background on a major EBRI study that assesses the projected impact of certain tax reform proposals on employee and employer behaviors and on retirement income adequacy using EBRI’s Retirement Security Projection Model®.
