◊ Gross annual compensation is not always used to calculate includible income under a 403(b) plan. If you did not work the entire calendar year, or if you worked part-time, you may be able to use a longer period to determine includible income. In such cases you will need to consult with a tax advisor to determine how to calculate the annual addition for the 403(b) plan.

◊ This application automatically considers catch-up contributions under section 414(v) for participants age 50 and over. It does not automatically consider catch-up contributions permitted under section 457(b)(3) for 457 participants in the 3 years before retirement, or catch-up contributions permitted under section 402(g)(8) for certain 403(b) participants.
