If you have no earned income for 1999 you can't make an IRA contribution--unless you have a working spouse who made over $4000, in which case you can put $2000 in a spousal IRA, which can be the same IRA you already have. For the IRAs you already have, yes, you can combine them. Tell the broker to which you want to transfer that you want to transfer your other IRA; they will send you the paperwork. Prudential will probably charge you a $50 fee for closing the account. This custodian-to-custodian transfer is not a taxable event and should be completed promptly when the receiving broker has the paperwork. Good luck, Chris
