Save More for Retirement in 2022

On November 4, 2021, the IRS announced the cost of living adjustments affecting the dollar limitations for retirement plans for 2022. In October, the Social Security Administration announced a benefit increase of 5.9%, the largest increase in nearly 40 years. Following suit, many retirement plan limits have increased as well, compared to the 2021 levels. Contribution and benefit increases are intended to allow participant contributions and benefits to keep up with the cost of living from year to year. Click below to take a deeper dive into the 2022 limits, and as always, please reach out to your Rea retirement plan specialist for questions.
