Brybz asks:So it IS possible to contribute to a SIMPLE-IRA and a Roth IRA, while transferring my old 401k into a traditional IRA? Can I make subsequent contributions to the traditional IRA's with the Roth and SIMPLE? Yes, the transfer of your 401k money to a traditional IRA does not in any way prohibit you from making a contribution to both the SIMPLE and the Roth. Your participation in the SIMPLE also in no way prohibits you from contributing to a traditional or a Roth IRA. All the SIMPLE participation will do is possibly preclude a deductible contribution to a traditional IRA. For details on the latter, see page 9 of IRA Publication 590 (Individual Retirement Arrangements) available for download at http://www.irs.ustreas.gov/forms_pubs/pubs.html. As to "subsequent contributions to the traditional IRA," you may make an annual contribution to both a traditional and a Roth IRA in the same year, but the total of both contributions combined may not exceed $2K. Please note that I'm not talking about a rollover/transfer of 401k money here as that kind of contribution does not affect your ability to make an annual contribution.
