But I'm a sucker for the repetition...

So, I work two jobs, one has a 401k, and the other is a 401(a) TIAA-CREF. (I teach on the side...)

So here's the biggie:

I've been told that contributions to a 401(k) are different than a 401(a), because one is mandatory, and the other is voluntary.

I would LOVE to just put 100% of my salary for the teaching into the 401(a), and just live (easily) off the salary from which I am also contributing to the 401(k). Everybody knows I have two jobs, so that's not the issue. I just want to make sure Uncle Sam doesn't have a beef with me throwing wads and wads at my retirement, just because I can, and frankly, need to.

Meow On!
