I recently retired and was rehired making the same salary (88K) and my retirement check comes monthly at 6K. Can I invest in IRA or Roth IRA or is my income too high? Do I even want to deal with tax issues with these things? My inclination is to just stash the cash for now. What say you fool?

IIRC, you can contribute to a Roth IRA completely if your AGI is underneath 95k, so you definitely qualify for that.

For a traditional IRA, it depends on if a 401(k) or similar is offered by your company as to whether it is tax deductible or not.

Either way, check out IRS Publication 590 for everything you've ever wanted to know about IRAs.
