Is there a maximum contribution amount?

Yes. In 2015, you can contribute a maximum of $1​8,000. If you are age 50 or older, you may be able to contribute an additional $​6,​000 in catch-up contributions. (Note: There is also a special rule for eligible employees with 15 or more years of full-time service. They may be able to contribute up to $3,000 more for five years, or a maximum of $15,000.)

Contribution limits are indexed to inflation and may change in future years. Note that if you participate in both a 403(b) and 457 plan, you can contribute the maximum to both.
