I believe the exemption to conntribute to 2 Plans with a 457 exists only wirh a 457 and 403b.
Also, to Phoebe, you can not contribute 17k to both, unless you have a 457 plan and a 403b plan. You indicated you have a 401k and a 401a. As Mjolah described, if it is in fact a 401a, then no employee contributions are allowed. 401a Plans are funded entirely by the employer.

It does not matter what you believe. The facts are that you can contribute to a 401k and a governmental 457 at the same time up to the maximum for each.
