You'll likely not find any companies that will participate with DRIPs into an IRA account...Roth or Traditional. Too much paperwork for them (the company) to complete when you take distributions. I don't know of any company that will provide a DRIP to an IRA. If anybody knows of one, then feel free to spread the word.

How about these? (Or isn't this what is asked about?) http://www3.netstockdirect.com/nsdasp/DetailLevel1.asp?NoGraphics=

Isn't the idea that the owner of the IRA makes cash contributions and then the cash is used to make stock purchases? Then, when (qualified)distributions are taken, what comes out of a traditional IRA is going to be taxed as regular income, and what comes out of a Roth is not going to be taxed at all, so I really don't see what the paperwork would involve... I must be missing something....
