I have a friend who reports that he sent in a contribution to his existing rollover IRA, established with money from a prior employer, and was told by Fidelity that he could not make contributions to this account. The issue was not that such contributions would "taint" the rollover money and disqualify it from subsequent rollover back into a new 401k plan. The issue was that he simply couldn't make a contribution at all. I think they're wrong.

Does anyone have chapter and verse on this issue? Thanks for your feedback.
