"The $11,000 is the max *you* can contribute." That's pretax. You can contribute additional after tax funds up to the full percentage max. So the percentage max is sum of before and after tax contributions. Employer's match is not included in either number.

If you are classified as highly compensated employee, usually management, then your total contribution is limited to a different total figure--that depends on contributions level by other employees.
