The IRS reversed its March 5 decision to decrease the 2018 contribution limit for family coverage only. The new contribution limit is back to $6,900 (previously adjusted to $6,850).

To review the official IRS announcement, visit the Internal Revenue Service press release (published April 26, 2018).

This means individuals who have already contributed $6,900 are fine and do not need to return any money. And those individuals who have automatic contributions that would have exceeded the earlier $6,850 limit in 2018 are fine. No changes need to be made as long as they do not exceed the $6,900 family contribution maximum.

If you have questions, please contact your Total Benefit Solutions, Inc. account manager at (215)355-2121.

lquoteI'm writing to apologize and to express my dismay and regret for switching from your firm last year. What a gargantuan mistake that was! To recount the horrors of dealing with the firm we switched to would only cause me to relive them, something I'm not willing to do (at this point). What do I have to do to get back with you guys?
