excess aggregate contribution

Definition

Contributions to a 401K plan that cause the plan to fail the ACP test, which determines whether a retirement plan favors highly compensated employees. In applying this test, plan administrators must consider contributions from both the employer and the employee. The test determines whether these contributions represent excess aggregate contributions.
