401(k) contributions by definition (salary deferral)must come from payroll deductions. Since your new employer doesn't have a 401(k), you have no method of contributing additional dollars this year.

Since you were in a 401(k) plan this year, you may only make deductible contributions to an IRA if you don't exceed the income cap of (?)$30,000.

If you don't make over $95,000/$150,000 (single/joint) AGI, you can make a non-deductible contribution to a Roth IRA and reap the rewards of tax-free growth.

If you make over the Roth IRA limits, you could make a non-deductible contribution to a traditional IRA to reap the rewards of tax-deferred growth.
