Small Changes to Contribution Limits for 2014
In 2014, the maximum amount you may defer from your salary is $17,500 or 100% of your includible compensation (as defined by the Program and the Internal Revenue Code), whichever is less.

The Special 457(b) catch-up contribution amount remains the same in 2014, which means you can contribute up to a maximum of $35,000 to the Program if you are within three years of normal retirement age. The additional amount you may be able to contribute under the Special 457(b) catch-up contribution will depend upon the amount that you were able to contribute in previous years but did not.

The age 50 catch-up contribution remains at $5,500 in 2014, which means you can contribute up to a maximum of $23,000 to the Program if you are age 50 or older during the 2014 calendar year.

If you are eligible for both catch-up options, you may not take advantage of both in the same year.
