The maximum dollar amount an employee can contribute to their 401(K) is increasing $500 to $17,500 for 2013. Those who are 50 and older can contribute as much as $23,000.
Let’s break down $17,500.

$1.9977 per hour (based on 8,760 hours per year).
$.0333 per minute.
Better get to saving.
Oh, and in case you’re interested…
The geometric average monthly rate of return for the S&P 500 Index since 1926 is .779%. If a person invests the maximum of $1,453.33 per month for 25 years and gets that kind of return, they could have $1.75 million.
Something to think about.
