Traditional IRA & Roth IRA

2021 & 2022 Contribution Limits Remain Unchanged:

Under Age 50: $6,000

Age 50 and Older: $7,000

SEP IRA

2021: $58,000

2022: 61,000

SIMPLE IRA

2021: $13,500 

2022: $14,000

As you can tell from the numbers, limits are increasing for 2022. The biggest change is the amount you can contribute to a Solo 401(k). Regular 401(k) plans get a nice $1,000 boost as well.

Although the IRA contribution limit remains the same, you can contribute a little more to a SEP or SIMPLE IRA. Plus, you can earn a little more and make tax-deductible or Roth contributions.

The ability to save more for retirement is a nice bonus each year. Remember, you have until the end of the year to make employee contributions to a 401(k) plan. Plus, you have until the following April to contribute to an IRA or as the employer to a Solo 401(k) plan!
