If you have a 401k, SEP IRA, simple IRA, or HSA, you’ll be able to contribute more to your account(s) next year, which can help you build your retirement savings! The limit on contributions changes from one year to the next due to inflation. However, the limits don’t change every year, and this year they don’t impact all types of retirement accounts.
How have the contribution limits changed?
The contribution limits have increased slightly for some types of accounts, and they have stayed the same for others.
2020 Investment Account Contribution Limits:

|Traditional, Roth IRA & ESA||$6,000||$6,000|
|Catch up Contributions for Simple IRAs||$6,000||$6,500|
