Consider it confirmed. You are correct and your co-worker is not. As long as you meet the AGI limits for doing so, you may contribute to a Roth. And even if you didn't, you could still contribute to a nondeductible IRA regardless of your income. For details, see the IRA discussion in my Foolish Retirement Plan Primer at http://www.fool.com/retirement .
