<< I was participating in a retirement plan ("savings & security plan", not a 401k) with my previous employer. When I left the company, I elected to leave the money within the plan. I am not making new contributions to it, although dividends are reinvested. Can I open an IRA without moving or adjusting this previous account? >>

If I understand your question, you're worried that this account from previous employment somehow affects current IRA contributions. It does not, including the deductibility of current IRA contributions.

If your question is something else, please clarify.
