I work and my husband is a full time student. He has had no income for several years while in school. I have contributed $2000 for my Roth IRA and $2000 for his as a spousal IRA. He is now earning a small income for tutoring. He probably will not earn $2000 this year. Can I still contribute $2000 to his Roth IRA, or is it now limited to whatever his actual compensation is?

Thanks,
Jennifer
