Indexing your contributions allows you to factor inflation into your plan by increasing contributions proportionately so that their value remains stable. For example, if you want to contribute $1,000 per year, with an indexation of 2%, you'll have to contribute $1,000 in year one, $1,020 in year two, and so on. Without indexing, your $1,000 contribution will lose value over time.
