This is jogging my memory anyhow. The last place I worked that had a 401k plan also matched 6%. Now seems that the last couple of years I worked there I decided to put as much money away as possible and received a call around Oct/Nov that I was going to exceed my limit and had 2 choises.

1....Stop contibuting until Jan of the next year

2....Put money into a taxable account

So I picked the latter and put some money into a taxable account; still saving but not tax deferred. But have read somewere that now with a company match you can sock away around 40k. But in 2005 I can only contribute 14k, and even if the company matched 100% another 14k, that would be 28k..........were does that 40k figure come from??????
