One of my personal finance goals for 2012 is to boost retirement savings to 15 percent of our gross income. This goal is being helped along by some changes to retirement savings that go into effect on Jan. 1. Changes include an increase in the maximum amount of money an individual can invest in a 401k each year and more transparency about the fees associated with maintaining that 401k.
