A traditional DRIP is administered by the company (or their registered agent). It's completely separate from another account.

Very few companies/agents are set up to allow for DRIP IRAs. Do note that you can find a list of them by searching at www.netstockdirect.com
There were 23 when I just searched.

You could set up a DRIP within an IRA, but the broker will probably charge more fees than it's worth.


FWIW, E*Trade at www.etrade.com offers free dividend reinvestment for up to 30 stocks owned in any account. I use this service in my IRA with them.
