with no reportable earned income

Oops! Unless your spouse has earned income and you file joint (I think that is the requirement), you will not be able to fund an IRA or a Roth IRA. One must have earned income, or one's spouse must have earned income, to be able to contriburte to an IRA or to a Roth IRA.
