This is a pretty dumb question, and I think I know the answer, but just wanted to double-check with the board here.
In May, I switched careers from the public sector to private. Up to the point of my resignation, I had already contributed the max into my 457(b) plan ($15.5K). My new company has a 401(k) plan. My understanding is that I can contribute another $15.5K of tax deferred money into the 401(k) plan.
I checked with online sources, and they all seem to suggest that's correct. (ie. 457(b)wise : 457(b) FAQs
Can an employee contribute to a 457(b) and a 403(b)?") However, I have not found the answer on the IRS website. There is a small lingering doubt in my mind, since I haven't heard it directly from the horse's mouth, so to speak.
Any knowledge/personal experience is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
