This doesn't make sense to me. Let's say i contribute X pretax and Y aftertax. I think they are saying that they will contribute 35% X + 35% Y . And they are saying they will contribute no more than 6% of (X+Y).

But but ... but...

But 35% X + 35% Y is 35% (X+Y). which is much bigger than 6% (X+Y)

Am i just being daft?
