Does the plan allow you to change your salary deferral on demand?

The general rule is that you should defer the amount of your salary that will be matched. At tthat point tyou you should contribute to your IRA

Most individuals will avoid making non-matched salary deferral contributions to their 401(k) plans due to high costs and poor investment choices..but this varies by plan.
