A retiree receiving SS takes a short term consulting position & earns $7500, which is the only earned income for the year. Other than the couple's SS payments their only source of income is from dividend distributions. The couple files a joint return. The spouse does not hold a paying position. If the couple meets the income eligibility requirements, can each contribute $4500 to Roth IRAs for 2005?
