What would the Roth eligibility be for a spouse with a very small earned income? I'm basically a non-working spouse, but have about $350 in earned income for 1998. Can I open a spousal Roth IRA in the full amount of $2000, or am I only eligible to contribute up to the amount of my earned income? We file jointly and meet the AGI requirements.

Does this small income disqualify me as a non-working spouse?
