Greetings, Cookala, and welcome. You asked:<<Since my husband was medically retired in June of 1998 at the age of 52, his only income has been his modest monthly retirement check. I'm 57 years old, still working and have just contributed $2000 to a ROTH for both 1999 and 2000 for myself. My question is...are we eligible for a spousal IRA for *him* for both years as he had no earnable income? What makes this question bizarre is he passed away January 14th after a very long and debilitating illness. >>I'm truly sorry for your loss. As you've already learned, now that your spouse is deceased you cannot now contribute to an IRA in his name.Regards..Pixy
