Question: Does the employer's match count against the $10,500 401k contribution limit?


No, the $10,500 is the limit YOU are allowed to contribute. The thing to be careful of is this: If your employer matches (say 4%) of your contributions monthly and you reach the $10,500 limit in September due to your high contribution rate, you will loose the employers 4% contribution for the remainder of the year. At least that's how it is where I work.
