If 2013 came and went and you did not manage to put away money for retirement, you may be in luck. If you have an individual retirement account (IRA) or a Roth IRA you can make your contribution up until you file your 2013 taxes, including extensions. This gives you a little extra time to knock this important item off of your to-do list. The contribution limits for 2013 were $5,500 ($6,500 if you are over 50).
