Question by Cindy16: How much I am allowed to contribute to my ROTH IRA as a married couple?
My husband and I currently have one ROTH IRA under my name.
I also have 401k at my job, and he has his 401 at his job.
I am wondering could he also contribute to an ROTH IRA?
If so, what is the limits for him?

Depending on your age. If you are over 50, then you can contribute $ 6000 each as long as you have made at least $ 12,0000 in income. If you are under 50, then the max is $ 5,000 each.

Now if you make more than 166,000 as a couple, then those limits are less.

If you do make over $ 166,000 then I would make a trad ira contr and then convert to a roth.

If you do make over $ 166,000 I would always talk with a tax advisor on anything that you do, especially when it comes to roths.

My wife’s company just added a 401k and I am considering contributing to it but was wondering if there are limits to max 401k contributions if we file married/jointly? I currently max out my 401k account and I know with our combined income status IRA contributions are no longer tax deductible so I am worried adding to her 401k will bring the same limitation.

Right now we each have 50 bucks a month put in to the Growth fund of america and the Capital World Growth and Income Fund…. wise allocation? or should we be doing something else

Hello. The above says it all. My wife and I are both over 50, and we file married/filing jointly. If we both put $5000 in our IRAs, do we get a $10,000 deduction, or do we max out at $5000?

thanks a bunch…

With the new rule in effect as of March 2008 allowing a direct 401k rollover to Roth IRA, could you shed some light on this scenario: A couple, both over 60 files jointly and will be earning less income when retired. Currently both are working and earn 100,000. When retired their income will be 46,000. They have 300,000 combined in their 401k and would like to know if it makes financial sense to rollover to a Roth Ira. Thank you for your help.
