I've been lurking a bit and feel really silly but need to ask this question.

I'm guessing you can have both a Roth and a traditional IRA in a situation such as the following.

You start your job and make less than 95,000 or 150,000 (joint) so you start a Roth IRA. Over the next few years, you start to make more money so you no longer qualify for the Roth so you stop contributing to the Roth and make a traditional IRA.

Now both the Roth and traditional IRA exist and work for you even though you can no longer contribute to the Roth. Is this correct?

Another question is if you have an open Roth IRA (above situation), can you then rollover a 401(a) plan into it? My guess would be no since you can no longer contribute to it.

Thanks in advance.
