crf01: "Seeing the other message about IRA for children gave me the courage to ask this question."Good."I have a 3 year old, 9 month old, and (-7) month (on the way)."Congratulations."My first 2 already have savings accounts each with $15k in CDs. Each will have about $500 in interest income this year. This gave me the idea to open Minor IRAs in their names and fund them equivalent to their CD income.Can I do this?"Not as written. Each child would need "earned income" to fund an IRA. Except for child models and actors, most 3 year olds and 9 month olds do not have earned income.We opened an IRA when our daughter was a young teenager with earned income from baby sitting and pet sitting."And, does it sound too extreme?"No, not if done in compliance with the law.Regards, JAFO
