Got a couple of questions about my retirement accts...

1. What is the yearly max you can contribute to a Roth IRA?

2. I have about $4000 in a 401k with a job I am resigning from-plan to maybe roll to a Traditional IRA then to a Roth...will this count against the yearly contribution max in the Roth?

3. New job offers a 401k, so I may just tranfer the 4k from the old job, depending on what they have to offer--BUT the new job does not offer a matching % to contributions. So what I am thinking is I should fully fund my Roth 1st then send what is left over to the 401k to take advantage of the tax free withdrawls with the Roth. So if I save 15% of my 60k salary then the 1st $4000 goes to fully fund the Roth, then $5000 goes into the 401k--or can I send $4000 to the wifes roth and the remaining $1000 in the 401k?

I am 33 years old and want to be able to retire at about 65...maybe sooner.

Thank you
