I am in the position of not being able to maximize my 401k contribution in 2004. I took a large pay cut with a promotion(?) and am only allowed to contribute 15% of my salary to my 401k based on my prior years compensation. This means I won't be able to contribute the full $13,000 allowed in 2004. Is there some allowance in the government rules so I can maximize my contribution for this type of situation or am I out of luck.
