Subject:  How much can I put in a new Roth? Date:  1/28/1999  8:16 PM
Author:  MuBeckham Number:  8152 of 107835

I'm new to investing, and I'm setting up a Roth. I'm putting in 2,000 dollars for 1998 and would like to put in an additional 1,000 for 1999 at the same time. I havn't made the $1,000 in income this year yet, but I will by the end of the year. My question is can I just write my broker a check for $3,000 or do I have to give only 2,000 and wait for my YTD income to reach 1,000.

Thanks in advance,
