A note from retirement specialist Gary Najarian: You may have heard that contributions levels are rising for 2012 (see attachment, note that these limits also apply to 403b plans). The employer sponsored retirement plan remains a cornerstone of good retirement planning. As I do each year I encourage you to look at your allocations, contribution amounts, employer match etc. These balances should work in concert with your total household assets in helping you reach you retirement goal.
