Subject:  how many IRA's can you have? Date:  2/1/2000  3:40 PM

I recently opened up a Roth IRA for myself with an on line broker. My wife opened up her Roth IRA through a mutual fund company. We are both beginning investors.

I see people say "in one of my IRAs" or "in my Roth IRA blah blah....and in my regular IRA blah blah..."

The question is, aren't you only allowed to have one IRA in your name? I mean, I have my Roth IRA, can I open up another one, maybe a regular IRA too?

If anyone can point out the answer, please let me know. I was pretty sure that you can only have one per person (either Roth or Traditional), just starting to second guess myself..

Thanks
