Greetings, Bland13, and welcome. You asked:

<<Can my husband continue to contribute to my spousal IRA (I do not work), even though he is now over 70 1/2?
He still works.>>

Yes, if you are younger than age 70 1/2, then your spouse may contribute up to $2K to your traditional IRA. If you are older than age 70 1/2, then he may (subject to AGI limitations) contribute to a Roth IRA for you as well as a Roth IRA for himself. For details, see IRS Publication 590 (Individual Retirement Arrangements) available at
