Subject: Retroactive 401(k) Contributions? Date: 1/14/2005 12:31 PM

I switched jobs last year before being able to max out my 401(k). Due to my income bracket, traditional IRAs and possibly Roth as well (need to get down and dirty in my AGI calculation) are not available to me.

I'm wondering if it is possible to:

a) Contribute to a employer-sponsored 401(k) after you have left said employer (my account is still active, they didn't "kick me out")

b) Contribute "retroactively" like an IRA. For instance, can I contribute $5K on 1/15/05 and have it count for the 2004 tax year?

Thanks for any comments. I'm learning tons from you guys in the short time I've been here!
