The Internal Revenue Service has released the 2011 cost-of-living adjustments for compensation and benefit limits related to retirement plans. The following chart summarizes 2011 retirement plan limits and other benefit plan limits. These limits are adjusted as often as every year to account for increases in the cost of living, or as established by statute. By statute, several of these numbers may not be reduced. All 2011 limits noted below remain the same as 2010 amounts. The 2010 limits are also listed for reference purposes.
