How much can I contribute?
Through automatic payroll deduction, you may contribute either a dollar amount or a percentage between 1% and 100% of your eligible pay. If you select a specific dollar amount, it may not exceed the Plan percentage limits which are based on your compensation. You may change your deferral dollar amount or percentage as applicable. Any changes made would take effect at the beginning of each payroll period.
If you have not exceeded IRS dollar contribution limits and/or Plan percentage limits, you may be able to make an additional deferral contribution to the Plan. With proper notification to your Plan Administrator, you could make an additional deferral contribution up to 100% of a bonus paid to you.
