The annual limit for your standard 401k/403b/457 goes from $19,000 to $19,500 from 2019 to 2020. That means you have an additional $500 (or $1000 if you’re working for a state institution that has both 403b and 457) that you can put away for retirement in a tax-advantaged fashion.
I went on the awful university internal site and figured out how to futz with my 403b withholding (it took about 20 min and a ton of googling to figure out– this is still better than the paper way we had to do it before which always took at least an hour, including finding the forms and the addresses the forms needed to be sent to), from 2111.11 to 2166.66 given my 9 month salary. Then I went to the easy and painless 457 site and futzed with that withholding (5 min, most of that digging out my password). Then we determined that DH had to email their admin person in order to futz with his 401k, so he did that (20 min, mostly determining he couldn’t do it himself online).
So now we have an additional $1,500 going towards tax-advantaged accounts for 2020!
When was the last time you changed your retirement contributions?
