The match is the main issue. SOme plans will "true-up" at the end of the year, for people who deferred the max early. However, most do not and most plan sponsors do not understand the difference.

My advice is to divide the max by pay, and then work into your deferral percentage, assuming you are not allowed to differ a fixed amount. That way you get all the match.
