The IRS has published an issue snapshot discussing catch-up contributions in 403(b) plans. 403(b) plans may permit participants to make age-50 catch-up contributions, which are also allowed in 401(k) and governmental 457(b) plans, but they may also allow a special 15-year catch-up contributions for participants. Under the special 403(b) catch-up, employees of a qualified organization may contribute an increased dollar amount under IRC Section 402(g)(1) if they’ve completed at least 15 years of service with the organization.
