With the cost of basically everything going up right now, this should be welcome news for people who have retirement accounts.

403(b), 457 plans: Ditto for most of these plans. The contribution limit goes up to $20,500 in 2022.
IRAs: The income range that determines if you’re eligible to make deductible contributions to your Individual Retirement Arrangements will increase. For a full list of specific “phase-out” ranges, visit the IRS announcement here.
