---You start your job and make less than 95,000 or 150,000 (joint) so you start a Roth IRA. Over the next few years, you start
to make more money so you no longer qualify for the Roth so you stop contributing to the Roth and make a traditional IRA----

I think not. You are eligible for a standard IRA up to I believe around 51,000 individual. If you do not qualify for that, you can contribue to a Roth. After you are above the Roth limit, you can make NON-DEDUCTABLE contributions to a standard IRA. The deposits as well as the withdrawls will be taxed I believe. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

And you cannot do a direct rollover from a 401k to a Roth IRA. You have to rollover to a regular, then convert.

I hope this helps.
