A previous post on this topic:

answered a similar, but not exactly the same question I need help with.

The article pointed to in the response said that "if your employer offers a 403(b) and 401(k), federal law permits you to contribute a total of $11,000 to both combined."

I interpret that to mean if the same employer offers both, then you can contribute a total of $11,000 across both plans.

My question is this:

I currently max out my 401(k) plan with my for-profit employer, with a contribution that annualizes out to $10,999.92 .

I will soon be starting a second job, at a not-for-profit employer, with a 403(b) plan. Two different jobs with two different employers.

Can I contribute to both plans without hitting some "overall contribution limit?" How much can I contriubute to the second plan?
