Greetings, Beth, and welcome. You wrote:<<I was working in 1999 up until October, but then left to stay home with our newborn. So, I imagine that for 1999, I can make a contribution since I had "earned income".But, does this mean that (if I choose not to go back to work in 2000) that I will no longer be able to make contributions to a Roth IRA (having no earned income)? -- Or, am I still okay if my husband and I file jointly? (Since he will continue working, and our AGI will be under $100,000) >>As long as you file a joint return, you do not have to be working to contribute to an IRA. Only your spouse does. If he has sufficient income (i.e., $4K), then both of you may contribute to your own separate Roths at $2K each.Regards..Pixy
