I'm just saying that if they were in the same brokerage account, which is a joint account, we could access both individual IRAs with one login. - caat

The terminology you keep using is incorrect and that's why everybody is getting confused and having a hard time figuring out exactly what you are saying.

I think. But maybe you *are* saying what everybody thinks you are saying. The way I read it, you are conflating "login to broker" with "joint account".

Here's the deal:
* You can have several accounts at one broker.
* You can have one login per account, OR you can have one login which gives you access to multiple accounts.
* But the accounts are still independent of one another.

Sure, no problem. We have several accounts with Etrade -- joint, IRA, Roth IRAs, individual. One login. Once I log in, it shows me all the accounts and I just select whichever one I want to look at, trade in, etc.

To restate correctly what I think you said: "if the accounts were all with the same broker (which we already have a joint account at) we could access all three accounts, the joint account and the individual IRAs with one login."
