When is one an "active participant" in an employer maintained plan? My wife has funds in two 401(k) plans sponsored by former employers, but she can make no new contributions. She has been self-employed all of 1999. Can she now make a deductible contribution to a traditional IRA or is she an "active participant" in plans of her former employers who can only make non-deductible contributions? We will be filing a joint tax return and are under the adjusted gross income caps.

Thanks in advance for the help.
