Rules changes for IRAs, 401(k)s & other savings vehicles.

The IRS has made minor adjustments to retirement plan limitations for 2014. As inflation has been tame in 2013, these COLAs aren’t dramatic; as a result, some retirement plans won’t see any next year. Here is a roundup of the changes for 2014.

IRAs. Not much change here: the 2014 contribution limit is still set at $5,500, with an additional $1,000 catch-up contribution permitted for those 50 and older.

The AGI phase-out ranges affecting your ability to deduct traditional IRA contributions have been slightly adjusted north:
