Thanks for visiting 401k Limits.  After many maddening encounters with the IRS website, my goal in creating this site was to provide easy to understand answers to retirement related questions.   Primarily this site provides information on 401k and IRA related subjects, particularly related to cost to living adjustment on contributions limits for these plans. I try to take a forward looking approach and forecast what various limits will be in the future based on changes in the Consumer Price Index.

Who am I?  My name is Chris Butterworth and I am an entrepreneur.  I was the kid that was reading Money Magazine while other kids were playing video games.  I graduated with my BA in Economics from Vanderbilt in 2006.  The following year after following an accelerated degree program I received my MBA in Marketing from the Owen Graduate School of Management (also Vanderbilt) at the age of 22.  After five years working in the private sector in brand management, I am now devoting myself full time to entrepreneurial pursuits. It’s worth noting that I am not a Certified Financial Planner — please consult one if you’re making major life decisions using this information.  The perspective that I offer is as a data geek not as a financial adviser.

Also, while I try to diligently research all of the posts presented on the blog, I’ve caught errors from time to time.  Please help me out if anything looks off.
