Subject:  Roth for stay-at-home parent? Date:  4/21/1999  3:04 AM

Can a stay-at-home parent (with no "earned income") make contributions to a ROTH IRA (assume married filing jointly with a spouse who is under the $150K limit)?

I have a vague recollection that this was allowed, but everything I read now says that contributions are limited by earned income.
