I have finally caught up and read all 445 messages since become Foolishly intelligent.

Here's my situation: I am 42 with a sizable self-directed IRA that was created from a 401K rollover and regular IRA contributions (mostly deductible). In 1997 I started with section 72t withdrawals-substantially equal payments- that must continue until I'm 59 1/2. I still want to contribute $2000 annually while I am still working. Rolling over the IRA to a Roth IRA is out of the question because the amount is quite large and even if spread over 4 years would put my AGI over 100K. I want to contribute the $2000 to a Roth IRA. When I calculate my 72t withdrawals in subsequent years will I use my regular IRA balance, or the sum of my regular IRA plus the Roth IRA?

Any other issues I should consider.

Z-Bar
