Dear Retirement Guru; I just received a transaction detail report for a job I had for 1 year: I quite June
30. It included a 401(a) pre and post tax accounts and a tax-deferred 403(b). My total
contributions for tax year 1998 for the 401(a) was $2.7K with $1.8K pretax. My 403(b)
contribution was $5.8K. I have a side job with a 457 plan which may come to 3K$ this calendar. I
also have a private practice sep- ira which may come to 1.2K$ by the end of the year. My question
is in regards to a 401(k) Thrift plan at my new job. If I were to participate in it before the end of the
calendar year 1998, how much could I contribute to it without incurring any bad vibs from the IRS?I am assuming there must be a limit to the sum of all the contributions for some of these retirement plans.
