Hey folks,

Scenario:

A family member of mine is disabled and collects social security.

Question:

Could this social security be put toward an IRA/Roth IRA? Basically I'm wondering if her social security money is technically earned income.


A simple yes/no will do. Actually if you could provide a link as well. I tried searching for this answer but sometimes searching the fool can be hit or miss.

Thanks

It should be unearned income - look at your 1040 (I know it's an effort <g>). Social Security payments are reported separately from wages.
