    For 2020, 401K contribution limits are increasing by $500 from $19,000 to $19,500 (over 50 catch-up contribution limit increases to $6,500) so change your withholdings accordingly.

    No change to the IRA contribution limit which is $6,000

    Does anyone know if it will continue to increase every year, or is it done changing after 2020 for the foreseeable future?

    It is tied to inflation somehow. So theoretically yes, will continue to increase. Although maybe not every year.

    HSA limits are getting a minor increase for 2020. Individual limits are up $50 to $3,550 and family limits are up $100 to $7,100. The over 55 catch-up contribution limit stays the same at $1,000.

    That's the point!

    52-54 is my targeted window of peace'ing the fuck OUT.


    Of course, rich is objective. I'll be rich in free time to do what I want, when I want, with the same income I have now. I will not be "rich" as many people consider it.

    The only thing you can't make more of in this life is time.

    I’m done at 55 as well.
    I can go and do something else if I feel, for shits and giggles until mama retires, but I’m walking at 55.

    I'll say it now. If I'm still doing this bullshit full-time on my 51st b-day I'm going to be disappointed in myself.

    Not sure if that's good or not compared to most who save and plan well, but nice to know I could very well be a millionaire in my early 50's in straight retirement savings alone.
    Did a few straight investment return calculators just now. Apparently that retirement one is way off.

    With current balance, assuming continue contribution of $19,500 until end date, plus my company match, at a 6.5% rate of return, I'll be at somewhere around $1.6m at age 55. I think I'll be good with that.

    With the IRA's, puts me over the $2m mark. Once again, assuming only until 55, and 6.5%, at current contribution levels.

    Lot of assumptions though. Also doesn't factor in raises or inflation, but oddly enough, my raises (or lack thereof) seem to always match inflation exactly. Funny how that works......


    Starting to see that light at the end of the tunnel. Living like a broke dick might end up paying off in the end.
