Hi paryping:

I know of no reason you couldn't deposite the 2K in your wife's existing spousal IRA, as long as you are still working and have earned income. I know that my wife and I could no longer contribute to our IRAs after we retired, because you must have earned income.

Now I'm not an expert on this subject, so I think you ought to look at the real web site for this kind of info. The horses mouth is:

http://www.irs.gov

It may take you awhile poking around in there, but you will find the correct answer there for sure.
