[[1. Can one contribute more than $2000 per year to an IRA / Roth IRA account.]]Nope...[[ 2. Can one have more than one IRA / Roth IRA account?]]Sure...but remember that if you have more than one account, you'll also have more than one administration fee to pay annually. And there is really no tax reason to keep separate accounts.[[ 3. Since I have a pension fund through my employer (not a 401K) I believe I can contribute to a Roth IRA. True?]]Potentially, yes.
