The ira max. at this time is $2000.
If she does not work where they offer a 401k or the like, than this would be the way to go to start for retirment. (and is not self employeed)
The extra money leftover would then need to go into a taxable account.
It may be that the ira max might go up to $5000 in the future, but that remains to be seen as of yet.
In a taxable account you could look into tax effeicent funds in order to reduce your tax burden.
