Makeup contribution

In NQDC plans, this is a company contribution made when a participant’s NQDC deferrals cause a decrease to the company match in the participant’s 401(k) account. The combined 401(k) and NQDC matching contributions must at least equal the match that would have been made if the participant had contributed only to the 401(k).
