Thank you all for the replies ... although, I have a another simple question.

I can afford, and plan to contribute, the max of $14k to my 401k in calendar year 2005. Pretty simple, just figure out what percentage of my salary I need to deduct to get me to $14k for the year. Now, my company will make matching contributions (I forget the exact details, but it's more-or-less the standard).

OK ... here is my question. Is there anything related to that corporate matching contribution that may make me want to reduce my % contribution as to take advantage of something related to the matching process? I just want to make sure I'm maximizing my company's match and want to know if my contribution percentage can negatively affect that.

I hope this makes sense. Thank you again.
