The limit on elective deferrals—the most an employee can contribute to a 403(b) account out of salary—is $19,000 in 2019. But the 2019 limit on annual additions (the combination of all employer contributions and employee elective deferrals to all 403(b) accounts) generally is the lesser of $56,000 or 100% of includible compensation for the employee's most recent year of service.
