Thanks, I'll convert. Half of my contributions were made when I was working in the US. I made..let me think...3 years of contributions when I was in Korea not knowing that I couldn't.

Since I have a pro here, I guess I'll ask you what to do. I looked this up recently when I learned that I had a problem, and I didn't attempt to fix the problem yet. I will be in the US in 2 weeks, and I figured I could redeem the problem then.

Here is what I read and here is my plan. I guess you can tell me if it's good or bad! Here are my excessive contributions (made while in Korea with no US income).

2009 contribution - 5,000
2010 contribution - 5,000
