Greetings, WSGrunt, and welcome. You asked:

<<My employer contributes to a SEP-IRA for me. Can I also contribute to the same IRA, and, if so, what are the limits/rules regarding such contributions?>>

Yes, you may treat the SEP-IRA as if it were your traditional IRA and make a contribution of up to $2K to the SEP-IRA each year. That contribution may or may not be deductible depending on your adjusted gross income and your income tax filing status. For details, see out IRA area at http://www.fool.com/money/allaboutiras/allaboutiras.htm. The SEP is treated as any other employer-provided qualified retirement plan for the purpose of determining the deductibility of IRA contributions.

Regards..Pixy
