I have a simple IRA that was set up by my father at a full scale broker, which has been underperforming the market, that has met the minimum two years active criteria before I can do any kind of conversion. I want to move that account into a Roth IRA that I can manage. I read that it is possible but then I also read that a qualified retirement plan (which is usually an employee sponsored plan, like a simple IRA) is not eligible to convert to a Roth IRA. How do I now if the plan I have is a qualified plan or if I can go ahead and do my conversion?

Thanks for any help, JJ
