Dear Investors:I read that you are required to have a Roth for 5 years to take money out without taxes when you are 59 1/2. If I invest in a different fund each year for 5 years, will only the first fund count towards the 5 year limitation?For example, Year 1 I invest in Seligman.Year 2, I choose Putnam.Year 3, I choose First American. Etc. Etc.Each year, I have funds invested in Roth, but in entirely different organizations. Will all 5 contributions be considered in the same "pool" to qualify for the 5 year waiting period, or will I have to wait 5 years on each company? For example, at the end of 5 years, only the Seligman was actually there for 5 years. Does this force me to invest in the same company for five years? If all 5 investments were in Seligman, then all 10,000 should be eligible instead of only 2000.Rich Locus
