Hi, Fools!

My employer offers a 401k and a three fifths match. I only found out recently that I was entitled to contribute so I only started now. My employer - who claims I should have known - tells me I cannot 'catch' up by contributing more now and receive a match for those first nine months of the year that I missed until now.
Is my employer right? Can anyone tell me under which conditions it would be possible to 'catch up' and benefit from the 401k option and match?

Any arguments that I can use to convince my employer are welcome.

Many thanks to all you fools!
